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!

12oz bottle from The Grapevine
Appearance: Clear golden with a small white head and good lacing
Aroma: Doughy, citrus, caramel and herbal

This was OK, but I didn’t like it. It did get better as it warmed up.

5000 (6599) - 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.

Idiosynkrasie (6317) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2013
355ml bottle. Clear amber colour with small, frothy, fading, off-white head. Expressionless caramel malty aroma with unspecific fruity touch. Taste is alike with additional, minimally soapy hoppy overtones, a touch of mint. Nothing the world was waiting for.

Braudog (6312) - Yorktown, Virginia, 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)

Lightly sweet toasty nose with herbal and citrus hop presence of a moderate variety. Pours orange amber, good clarity, thin head. Falvors of toasted malts, soft caramel sweetness, oranges and citrus hop notes, mildly spicy. Clean finish, easy to drink.
