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!

brugmanneke (278) - GERMANY - JUL 13, 2013
(35 cl bottle) Amber coloured, clear, off white head. Aroma is nutty and spicy/herbal, with a touch of gooseberry. Unfortunately, it is also a little metallic and has notes of cooked vegetable, althoughI just bought it some days ago. Still drinkable, but less nice than it could have been. Light to medium bitterness, light sweetness. Moderate carbonation, light body, but still a little sticky. Short aftertaste. Not so memorable.

unclemike (2240) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Amber with a decent off-white head. Aroma is slightly skunky. Once that smell fades there are notes of corn, caramel and must. Taste is malt, light woody hops

sawbuck (329) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Aroma of bready malt, with a hint of floral essence. Darker in color than anticipated, orange amber with off white head. Sweet malt is the first taste, hidden in there is a hint of caramel and some bitterness from hops. Finishes smooth with a tail of bitterness, balanced. Palate is light with average carbonation. Seems heavier than other commons...but I like that.

jake65 (2635) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Bottle: Clear copper color with a gentle beige head. Mild aroma, and flavor for that matter, of husky malts and modest florals. Just a little bit of sweetness, but overall a very mild and balanced drink.

robloc303 (268) - Erie, Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Pours hazy deep brown, no head. Nose of slinky caramel malt. Taste is very mild malt, a touch of caramel and bitterness, not much else. Nothing to brag about and not really a spring beer in my opinion..

"Spring" seasonal. Only date on here is for december though. It is a lightly malty, pretty crappy brew.
