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!

On draught at Widmer Gasthaus. Amber clear like a lager but a little more hoppy. Refreshing and sessionable.

Foxbush (1262) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 17, 2014
12 oz bottle on lake Murray The ale poured a clear light amber with average off-white head. This was an ale with full flavor of malt with some spice. The medium body ale had average carbonation. The ale finished with a slight sweetness. This was a nice Spring Ale for the river or lake.

Aroma is grass,fruit... Very lagery. Quite tame. Flavor is floral, lightly spicy, uninteresting. Boring_ and not something I’d drink again.

Bottle-> SA. Golden copper with moderate offwhite head. Mild pine hops with caramel malt base, some metallic notes and a slight bittersweet aftertaste. Eh.

lusikka (6193) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 31, 2014
355 ml bottle. Pours a copper colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of orange zest, some floral notes and grass. Flavour of smooth bready malts, grassy bitterness, some minerals and orange. Some metallic notes. Light bodied and soft carbonation with thin mouthfeel. Not good.

Frahmo (283) - Idaho, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Golden pour with a quickly fading off white head. Mild hops with a muted flavor throughout. Pretty mild overall.

nealblind (727) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Red brown pour. Aroma of caramel, creamy. Tastes creamy slight grassy hops like a british pale ale. Tastes of roasts, caramel. Creaminess to palate - I like the yeast used here. the columbia hops are not very prominent. Seems like they’re there just for bittering.

TXBadger (1336) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Pours more gold than anything with white head. Some light hop pine and a bit of malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Decent, but average.

Beerathon (1133) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2014
What am I missing here? This beer is bland. I give it credit for being crisp, and looking nice, but the hops are essentially nonexistent and the malts are a bit blah.

Overall not a terrible brew. Pour is a medium amber but the head dissapears quickly. Flavor is mild hops.
