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!

Bulk_Carrier (3891) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - MAY 16, 2014
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.

flemmingwillum (1185) - Nysted, DENMARK - APR 17, 2014
Rating #942, flaske fra Sydhavsdruen. En kobberfarvet øl med middelmådigt skum og kniplingsmønster på glassets inderside. Lækker duft med karamel, bær og citrus. Smagen er mere afdæmpet og karamelliseret, men indeholder de samme elementer. Tyk og cremet fylde, der lader en sidde veltilpas tilbage, mens man nyder den ret bitre og citrus-agtige eftersmag. Langt bedre oplevelse, end forventet.

From a bottle. Pours clear dark copper with a bubbly, frothy off white head. Tastes like very light malt, light grains, overall light creaminess. Smells like nutty, malty corn.

Bottle thanks to snoworsummer. Pours clear copper with creamy off-white head. Aroma is grainy malts, light toast, floral notes, light dates, and faint lager yeast. Flavor is bready malts, light toast, faint toffee, and faint hops; dry finish. Light/medium body and medium carbonation.

RedSox2004 (1686) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Clear copper orange, a smallish white head settles quickly to a thin film and leaves ok lace. Aromas of grain, wheat, toast and hints of cooked corn. Sweetness of the grains hits first, followed quickly by modest orange peel, grassiness, and biscuit. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a dry finish. Pretty uninteresting.

CloakedDagger (1977) - - MAR 19, 2014
Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours a clear amber with a creamy and lacing, off-white head. Rather sweet and chewy caramel aroma, a typical US breadiness with a spicy whiff. Medium body, again sweet caramel, a little sulphur and a dry finish. Interesting and quite pleasant. 190314
