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!

bhensonb (11389) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Bottle from the Arden BevMo. Pours light amber with a slight head. Aroma is lightly malty. Med body. Flavor is a light brown sugar with a fair amount of earthy bitter. A little fruity. Don’t think it’s banana ester tho. I think the main aspect, and it is strong in the finish, is the bitter. Decent beer.
