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.

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 (4918) - 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.

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.

Thanks to Maltajo for the bottle. Copper pour with a thin white head. Clean crisp malt taste with a touch of bitterness. Malty oxidized aroma. Not bad, but would like to try it fresh.

12 oz bottle from Whole Foods White Planes, NY. Nice clear copperey pour with a great fluffy head that poofs out of existance rather quick! Light refeshing crisp great for a spring day. It’s all yours.

12 oz bottle from Monaghan’s, yeah I knew this one was just a tick going in. Poured an actually really nice looking honey brown body underneath a full frothy off white head. Aroma is sweet with notes of corn and honey and the remainder is made up of malts and grains. The body is medium but the mouthfeel is full as this one tends to foam up once you attempt to swallow it and the carbonation is to strong for a beer this tasteless. Flvaor is of stale corn syrup, old bread, stale hop cones. If I was at a picnic this is palatable but as for a sipper....ugh I think not.

Pours copper body with a beige head. Caramel malt aroma with some notes of yeast. Slightly sour taste, apart from which all you get in this is malts. Minimal bitterness. Some dry notes. Not a bad mouthfeel. Overall not a bad session beer if not overly complicated and special. What kind of specialty grain is it? Is it even? Can’t tell.

Jow (2159) - New York, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Pours a copper with small white fizzy head. Not getting a lot on the nose. tastes a little caramel and bread. Slightly syrupy but easy drinking enough, not enough flavor to buy again, but i do have a six pack finish.
