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.

From a bottle poured a copper color with a fair amount of head. Nice bitter malty flavor with a lasting aftertaste.

The aroma is pretty average for a pale ale with a decent balance of hops and malt. The appearance is light amber with a foamy head that fades to nothing. The taste is like the aroma with a hoppy finish. The palate is smooth. Overall its a very good beer but nothing spectacular.

Bottle. Amber pour with a short white head. Aroma is sweet malt, grains and caramel. Taste is also sweet malt, grains and caramel. Touch of earthiness as well and light spicy hops. Body is medium with a creamy carbonation. Ends with more spicy hops, caramel, grains and sweet malt.

jjuf1853 (1262) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Draft at WOB (Carrollwood, FL). Pours a clear copper color with a foamed head. Mild aroma of sweet malt and grain. Flavor is pretty unexciting. Easy to drink so may go well on a hot day after yard work, but any other time I’d probably pass.

Leighton (13514) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2010
Bottle. Pours a light amber with a soft, white head. Mostly malt aroma with some bready caramel. Sweet flavor with more caramel, plus some rye, grain and citrus hop notes. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Finishes sweet, with hints of fruit and spice, and some herbal bitterness. Nothing too wrong here.

This was a very nice, smooth and crisp spring ale. Tasted light and refreshing with a hint of different malts.

jkwood04 (4502) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 25, 2010
12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours clear amber with a thick white head. Not much flavor or scent to this beer. Sort of bitter, very light. Not recommended.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5311) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Sampled on draft at the Rivertowne Pub this beer poured a caramel-amber color with a large beige head that lingered and produced good lacing. The aroma was sweet, tangy and fruity hops though was a bit faint. The flavor was bitter, sweet and tangy fruity hops with notes of grapefruit, mango and lemon. The finish was long, tart and fruity. Fairly full bodied. Nice.

Pwn3d (1961) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 15, 2010
Bottle. Had with Balazs the hun. Sweet and light... a bit of cereals and grains. Not sure what the special grain is... very light overall.
