COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When the Winter is over, Spring is nature’s way of saying “hey, let’s party!” Spring Fling is how we welcome the warmer weather and spirits. Spring Fling Copper Ale strikes a perfect balance between the malty flavor of special German barley and the zesty spice of fresh American hops that results in a delicious, extremely easy to drink brew. The exquisite blend creates a harbinger of the new season with a delicate hop aroma which delivers a perfect pairing for your Spring Fever. Handcrafted from a unique blend of malts, Spring Fling Ale is a perfectly balanced copper ale that delivers a crisp and refreshing taste with subtle hints of nuts and honey. The arrival of Spring Fling means Winter has passed and Summer is right around the corner.

Twist off top!! I have not had one of those in years. Pours an off white head and copper color. Aroma is sweet medium malt-caramel, some pine. Taste is sweet medium malt-caramel, secondary pine hops with some bite.

Nice copper color. Dry malt profile with a touch of roast. Almost tastes like it has rye. Malt fills the palate and blends nicely with the hop resin. Aftertaste is honey. Tasty brew.

Good on style points. Not very zippy once you savor the sweet barley. Easy to drink and easy to forget about. Nothing special here, just a nice beer.

kramer (4856) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body with a small fizzy off-white head that left some minimal lacing. The nose is toasty and sweet with just a light hint of hops. The flavor is on the sweeter side with a bit of crystal malt and light thin caramel. Minimal to no hops in the flavor. Reminds me a bit of Yuengling Lager really, but with a little more malt sweetness and little to no corn. Light to medium bodied with a bit of sticky clinginess. Meh, not the best Amber, but drinkable enough to have one bottle of it.

JorgeLee (1135) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2014
On tap in the BA lounge at JFK. Lovely tap head, enjoyed getting to grips with that! Poured a pleasant light amber copper colour. It’s a crisp drinkable ale, with a nice if unchallenging level of hop bitterness. Solid malts. Nothing remarkable but surprisingly pleasant. I suspect you might see a few of these slp down if you weren’t concentrating...

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - APR 3, 2014
Rated on 3-28-2011 (Bottle purchased at Total Wine & More-Ft. Myers, FL) This beer pours a medium sized off-white fizzy head with a short retention, transparent amber body, fast rising carbonation, and a substantial amount of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, grassy, citrus, sweet, and spicy. The taste is lightly bitter, caramel malt, grassy, citrus hops and has a dry finish. The mouthfeel is lively and this beer is medium bodied. The hops are upfront in the flavor and there is a lingering hoppy bitter aftertaste. It is not over-the-top hoppy tasting and is a nice beer on this humid late March Florida day.

DruncanVeasey (7097) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2014
Jettisoned bottle packing, room 212, UWS, 22/02/14. Deep lazily bubbling copper capped with a fine off-white mousse. Nose of bile, diluted OJ, fallen leaves, slight butter and Southern Comfort. Smooth and slightly warm at this hour with a hazelnut and orange hinting mellow fuzz of alcohol. Some mild roast and undeveloped hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Half-decent malt background; chocolate hints, minerals, almond. Amped up BSEB.
