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!

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

DuffMan (6790) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 3, 2013
Bottle. Medium amber colour, clear and bright, with an average white head. Aroma and flavour are grainy and fruity, light but with a firm mouthfeel from the crisp carbonation. More of a dark lager really. Not bad.

DrSilverworm (6455) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2013
12oz bottle, from Party Source. Bottled 12/19/12. Clear amber color. Thin off-white head. Good spread of lace. Lighter body. Good smooth carbonation, easy-drinking - especially nice to wash some food down with. Little fruity hop flavor. Little toasty malt, some caramel malt. It’s still a little difficult for me to pin down the flavor profile of the California Common, but this tastes like what you’d expect from a lighter version of the style. More bitter, little sweet. Solid, interesting stuff. Creative choice for a spring seasonal.

BVery (6416) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber pour with a small white head. Earthy, sweet caramel, a bit of spice, and toasted cracker. Not bad at all.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle:   Amber, clear, moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Faint toasted malt and whole wheat bready aroma.   Very bready on the tongue, not heavy, lots of whole wheat, a little nutty, slightly mealy.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft toasted malt finish, lingering whole wheat and nutty notes.   Pretty pedestrian.   Nothing off, but sometimes a little too bready.   Prefer Anchor Steam as it seems a bit hoppier.
