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!

Not much in the aroma. A nice orange hue. This has a great first crisp bite. The beer is quite nice. Light yet with some Carmelly list flavor. Pleased.

Cybercat (3439) - Georgia, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Comes out of the tap an attractive clear amber with a decent pale golden-tan head - not thick, but that is apparently an artifact of the pour. Malty aroma has notes of banana, grassy hops and spice. Flavor has notes of malt, hops, banana, horehound and a snipped of cloves & cinnamon. Smooth, satisfying texture has a persistent fizz and leaves a hoppy, fruity finish. Long live the Columbia hop!

Golden in color, clear with a thin head. Nice easy drinking ale. Creamy flavor rich and balanced very well. Nice spring seasonal.

Butters (3812) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Pours a golden amber with the ring of white head. Grassy nose but even moreso on the the flavor. A little grainy as well. Easy drinker, but nothing i’d go out of my way to seek out.
