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!

McGarnigle (605) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 8, 2013
Six pack. This is a nice looker that leaves excellent lacing in the glass. Nice malt backbone (kind of biscuity), slight hops, but the whole thing is crisp and flavorful. Doesn’t sate like Anchor Steam (the classic Cali Common), but still a good spring ale.

Bottle. Toasted, floral, caramelly beer with honey and walnut notes. Light oxidised, quite well integrated. Still nothing special.

JohnGalt1 (1434) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 3, 2015
Nose is pale malt with a nice toast punch... hoppiness is an odd but inviting mix of floral and grassy elements. Flavor pretty much mirrors the nose with a decent finish of toasted malt and the above hop notes that weigh heavier on the grassy side of things. Body is a solid medium, especially for such a low ABV beer... carbonation is light/medium. Tasty and very drinkable.. I will buy it again.
