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!

"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."

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle. Pretty amber beer, pleasantly active, with a nice pillowy head of off-white foam. The initial aroma is nice and woodsy, like a wet summer in the Pacific northwest. But this drinks with a more subdued earthy tone, more of a wet grassiness, tinged with a bit of almost smoky funk. (#5012, 5/9/2013)

Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling dark copper pour, light, but persistent off white head with a bit of lacing. Aroma has some nutty accents, a bit of toffee. Flavor is full bodied with some earthy notes, some toffee-like sweetness, a hint of licorice and some underlying nutty bitterness that makes this quite appealing. Mouthfeel is pleasantly sticky.

beerguy101 (5294) - Newark, California, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Sampled on 3/18/2013. This California Common/Steam beer pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head with good lacing. The aroma is bready and caramel, with some fruit and perhaps some hoppiness. A medium bodied California Common. The malts are caramel, bready and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and citrusy. Its quite hoppy for a steam beer, perhaps the Pacific Northwest treatment of the style. Decent carbonation. It does seem to be missing that full mouthfeel one usually has in a steam beer, but it makes up for that with a very nice hop profile. Nice session beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Deep copper pour with white head. Aroma is light flat caramel malt and perfumy hops. Flat semi dry malt with floral hop flavor. Medium bitter. Light bodied and fizzy.
