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!

What am I missing here? This beer is bland. I give it credit for being crisp, and looking nice, but the hops are essentially nonexistent and the malts are a bit blah.

Overall not a terrible brew. Pour is a medium amber but the head dissapears quickly. Flavor is mild hops.

Nice crisp flavor and taste. Palate has a mild hoppy finish. Color is golden copper with a nice clear hue. Good spring and early summer brew to drink at an early evening cookout.

The date I see stamped on the bottle is January 14, 2014. I poured this into a pint glass. The appearance was a light golden color with a decent transparency to it. There is a nice coating of thick foamy lacing sticking finely to the glass. The smell had some light caramel malts coming forth in a roasty yet also an earthy sort of way. The taste was a combination of cooked caramel malts with a light rice and corn flavoring. There is a quick sharp caramel aftertaste that ends up leading to a dry sticky finish. On the palate, it sits about a light to medium with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation is fairly light. Overall, I say this is a decent California Common.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped 15:48-DEC 03 13. The pour is a medium to deep copper amber with a modest off-white head. The aroma is feint with caramel roasted malts but not much in the way of hops. The body is light to medium. The taste has a slightly more rich toasted caramel maltiness with a clean finish.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A nice fruity nose. The flavor is light crisp grains, fruit, some medium spicy hops. Pretty nice really.
