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!

12 oz bottle, Whole Foods Columbus. Red-copper; small head dissipates to a tiny ring. Aroma toast, caramel, nuts; a little fruity and peppery. Flavor malt, caramel, a little grainy; pretty clean; light but sharp bitter finish. Medium-thin body; barely sticky on the lips; medium coarseness, lively carbonation. Unremarkable but well done in the style.

There was a nice hiss when i opened the bottle followed by a good amount of smoke. The beer pours a clear amber color with a small off white head that left some lacing around the glass. The aroma is caramel and some grassy/earthy hop notes as well. The taste is rather unique. The flavor is is a somewhat bitter sweet caramel and breadiness but on the back-end it is very grassy. The hops of very earthy. I don’t pick up much of the fruit in this beer however.

Slight haze on a yellow brown beer. Fairly mild initial impressions on the buds, much friendlier than I was expecting. Yes, some bitterness in there but overall a very smooth beer. As the session continues, it does get a little mild bitter building sensation on the back sides of th tongue but its never over the top. Yes, overall found this to be a better than average beer.

12oz bottle - Aroma - a delicate bouquet?? LOL...Aroma is light malt, table sugar sweetness and a touch of earthy bitterness Appearance - clear amber body, creamy white 2-finger head, nice retetion, decent lacing Mouthfeel - medium carbonation, light mouthfeel Flavor - slightly metallic tasting, more plain table sugar, earthy/woody bitterness Overall - quaffable and sessionable, yep and yep. Barely average though, so worth it if it’s on sale. Decent.

"Aroma and flavor a light pleasant mix of cereal and grassy hops. Delicate bouquet, maybe a little toast. Good job on the style though probably not good enough to go back to."

Transfer from BA review on 4-12-12- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a clear amber color with a one finger off white head that has a moderate level of persistence. The head fades after a few minutes of time to leave a lighter level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is a mix of a more grainy smells with some lighter roasted malt and bready smells. With these aromas are some lighter notes of a more citrus and floral hop smell mixed with the lightest amount of a caramel sweetness. Taste – The taste begins with a more bready flavor mixed with some caramel sweetness. There is a little bit of a roasted malt flavors come more toward the middle of the taste along with some hop of a more grapefruit citrus variety. At the end, more hop flavors come to the tongue, this time of a more grassy flavor, which in the end leave a lightly hopped and crisper malty flavor to be left on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium to slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are rather nice for making a crisp and rather easy drinking brew as this one is meant to be. Overall – While not a flavorful powerhouse, it does have a nice easy drinking and refreshing taste with just enough complexity to not be boring, but not too much too take away from its more session like (at 4.7 % abv) and easy drinking qualities.
