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!

kramer (5357) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear amber body under a small fizzy off-white head that retained as a thin film. The nose is lightly hoppy with some herbal notes and a lightly toasty maltiness. The flavor is quite hoppy for a Steam Beer, lots of spicy and herbal hops, rather fresh smelling. Some toasty and crackery maltiness. The flavor is rather hoppy with just a light bitterness, much more hoppy than any othe Steam Beer I’ve come across. The malt is pretty well in the background, just lightly toasty and on the drier side. Some lingering light bitterness and fresh floral and spicy hoppiness. Pretty nice beer with a distinctive fresh hoppiness.

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.

Bottle. This beer pours a deep rich copper red with a slightly offwhite head. A sweet caramel nose has some dust and pecans. There is also bread crust. This tastes of caramel and English walnuts. There is also some hay. The body is smoothly carbonated. This is a well made beer.

jgb9348 (5062) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Crisp light amber coloured body with a bright copper glow and a nice one centimetre tall white head. Aroma of grassy and herbal hops, some light malt, a hint of caramel and a nice hit of yeast. Light-bodied; Sharp grassy and herbal hops with a good malt backbone, some light sugars and a little nutty finish - perhaps from the malt. Aftertaste shows a very light hoppiness with some grass and a less pungent flavour than Anchor Steam and a more refined palate for sure. Overall, a decent beer, and good for the style - simple to drink for the Spring and a welcome addition. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Giant Food in Arlington (Lee Highway), Virginia on 12-March-2013 for US$1.67 sampled at home in Washington on 15-March-2013.

Bottle. Copper color and a good sized wheat head that is thick and laces the glass. Immediately recognizable as s California common style from the yeast aroma. Dry malt and white cracker flavor.

Not much in the aroma. A nice orange hue. This has a great first crisp bite. The beer is quite nice. Light yet with some Carmelly list flavor. Pleased.
