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!

Tap... Poured copper orange with a thick, eggy, fizzy head. Husky and grain-like. Some hop presence and bitterness, but ultimately clean and drinkable. Would be perfect on a warmer day rather than this freezing weather we’ve been having in PDX. Some green hop tone but a good amount of bready grains with earthy spices too.

The aroma is not unlike a cheap adjunct laden macro lager with dirt, yeast, and herbal hops. The appearance is light amber with a small head. The taste is really nice with malt, bread, fruit, and mild bitterness. The palate is smooth. Overall not a true common but a solid beer.

..or for January, also known as "Spring" in Texas. Crystal clear amber beer with a white head and good head retention. Light grassy malt aroma. Tingy sweet and grassy bitter flavor with a light character overall giving it that Spring character. Miles better poured into a glass than from the bottle but the body can get a little heavy so stick to bottles with this one. The lace is white and contiguous all around the glass.

On draught at Widmer Gasthaus. Amber clear like a lager but a little more hoppy. Refreshing and sessionable.

PorterPounder (5451) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling dark copper pour, light, but persistent off white head with a bit of lacing. Aroma has some nutty accents, a bit of toffee. Flavor is full bodied with some earthy notes, some toffee-like sweetness, a hint of licorice and some underlying nutty bitterness that makes this quite appealing. Mouthfeel is pleasantly sticky.

pours a clear pale amber with a small off-white head, and good lacing. smell is of grain, corn, some lemon, malt, and some hops. taste has a little bit of citrus, malt, hops, a little lagerish, and some grain. ends well balanced, refreshing, and more bitter than you would expect from a common.

Sampled on tap at GABF 2012. Pours a golden color with white head. Grainy, caramel, light noble hops, earthy flavors. Pretty drinkable. I wish more breweries would make California Common beers
