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!

It’s dark golden with a creamy head. The aroma is mild with light hoppy notes of light fruit, grass and malt. The flavor has a light sweetness and a light spicy bitterness growing more dry towards the finis. The notes are fruit, grass and light yeast, and towards the finish a touch of tea.

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

pivnizub (9520) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2013
Bottle: Deep golden to copper coloured, clear, smaller loose white head, malt and cooked vegetables in the nose, suppressed hops detectable; moderate bitter-sweet flavour and light to medium bodied; slightly lingering drier and hoppier finish with some fruitiness in the aftertaste. Not totally convincing…

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Tap at Penn social in DC. Clear amber. Weak to near no head. Nose is sugar, toffee, caramel popcorn. Taste is very metallic, harsh tinny flavor, some tannic bitterness. Astringent, chemical palate. Yuck.

DrSilverworm (9098) - 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.

Bottle. Hazy amber colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of malt, grass, bread, herbs, hops and notes of bitterness.

Quack-Duck (8921) - Down South, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2013
bottle from Bierzwerg. Clear golden colour, mid-sized white head. Malty with a pleasant sweetness, quite light, and elegant hop flavours that add a spicy grassy touch.

arminjewell (8842) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange pour with white head that lasts relatively well. Aroma brought notes of grass, slight cracker, biscuit, hints of lemon, vanilla, hints of honey, pretty mild but lots in there. Taste is a mix of grass, cracker, biscuit, slight earth, honey notes, finishing slightly bitter, dry. Not overly complex, but drinkable with no big off flavors.

DocLock (8798) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours dark straw with off-white head. Nose is maibocky, with fruity hops. Tastes on the tart side, with some yeasty pale malty notes and hops.
