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.

PorterPounder (5197) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 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.

flemmingwillum (949) - Nysted, DENMARK - APR 17, 2014
Rating #942, flaske fra Sydhavsdruen. En kobberfarvet øl med middelmådigt skum og kniplingsmønster på glassets inderside. Lækker duft med karamel, bær og citrus. Smagen er mere afdæmpet og karamelliseret, men indeholder de samme elementer. Tyk og cremet fylde, der lader en sidde veltilpas tilbage, mens man nyder den ret bitre og citrus-agtige eftersmag. Langt bedre oplevelse, end forventet.

snoworsummer (1602) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2014
From a bottle. Pours clear dark copper with a bubbly, frothy off white head. Tastes like very light malt, light grains, overall light creaminess. Smells like nutty, malty corn.

sonnycheeba (3042) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle thanks to snoworsummer. Pours clear copper with creamy off-white head. Aroma is grainy malts, light toast, floral notes, light dates, and faint lager yeast. Flavor is bready malts, light toast, faint toffee, and faint hops; dry finish. Light/medium body and medium carbonation.

RedSox2004 (1139) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Clear copper orange, a smallish white head settles quickly to a thin film and leaves ok lace. Aromas of grain, wheat, toast and hints of cooked corn. Sweetness of the grains hits first, followed quickly by modest orange peel, grassiness, and biscuit. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a dry finish. Pretty uninteresting.

CloakedDagger (408) - - MAR 19, 2014
Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours a clear amber with a creamy and lacing, off-white head. Rather sweet and chewy caramel aroma, a typical US breadiness with a spicy whiff. Medium body, again sweet caramel, a little sulphur and a dry finish. Interesting and quite pleasant. 190314

TempeCoyote (61) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Light amber with a white head poured from a 12oz bottle. Smells like a big brewer's pilsner but stronger with apparent malts. Taste is crisp and easy to sip but not watery. It's got a full, grassy, flowery hop flavor. This is not a particularly unique beer but a really flavorful session beer for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kramer (4687) - 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.
