COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Columbia Hop was near extinction when we brought it back to create this crisp, easy drinking common ale. With a rich amber hue, Columbia Common, the new Spring Seasonal Release for 2013, has a Mild grassy and spicy hop notes are complemented by a fruity character and clean finish brought on by the use of hefeweizen and lager yeasts and unique malt bill. It’s the perfect beer for Spring. Prost!

12 ounce bottle. Pours a darker gold with a one inch white head that lasts. Lots of carbonation. Taste is of malt, hops, caramel, grass, spice and yeast. Similar aroma. Has a nice wet body. The finish is a touch bitter. Easy to drink and enjoyable to drink. Well worth having again.

DrSilverworm (6979) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2013
12oz bottle, from Party Source. Bottled 12/19/12. Clear amber color. Thin off-white head. Good spread of lace. Lighter body. Good smooth carbonation, easy-drinking - especially nice to wash some food down with. Little fruity hop flavor. Little toasty malt, some caramel malt. It’s still a little difficult for me to pin down the flavor profile of the California Common, but this tastes like what you’d expect from a lighter version of the style. More bitter, little sweet. Solid, interesting stuff. Creative choice for a spring seasonal.

DoublEE (783) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2013
Overall, a pretty nice little steam beer, something I could see seasonal drinkers really digging in the sunshiny months.

McGarnigle (565) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 8, 2013
Six pack. This is a nice looker that leaves excellent lacing in the glass. Nice malt backbone (kind of biscuity), slight hops, but the whole thing is crisp and flavorful. Doesn’t sate like Anchor Steam (the classic Cali Common), but still a good spring ale.

ajnepple (2554) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2013
12 oz bottle. Amber and clear with an off-white head, patchy lacing and active carbonation. Rich, malty aroma with caramel, hops, cocoa and light fruits (banana). Light fluffy body with a soft feel. Medium malt sweetness with light bitter hops and light fruits. Smooth and pretty tasty for a lager.

Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average tan frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate grass hop and light malty aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a medium balanced finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew for style.
