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!

TheJester (1726) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2013
355 mL bottle. Nice amber colour with a short-lived, off-white head. Smells malty in a boring way. Doesn’t really taste like much at all. Very light and airy. Not unpleasant, but not particularly interesting, either. What do I know? Maybe it’s the style.

12oz bottle. Pours a light clear amber with a white head. Caramel and metallic notes. Tastes more macro than craft. Expected more from a Portland based brewery. Meh

JStax (2601) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2013
12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a translucent amber with a spritzy head of beige foam. Aroma has sweet, fruit forward notes with a softer toffee malt backbone. Taste is more sweet than anything else. It’s fairly balanced overall and for the style, its about what I would expect.
