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.

hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2009
12oz bottle. Poured a medium and clear amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of toastiness with some caramel. Tastes of the same toastiness and caramel. Not too much to this one. Body on the weaker side.

Beerman6686 (3870) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2009
This poured a slightly dark yellow with a big white head. Aroma was sweet maltiness and some adjuncts as well. Flavor was malty, boozy, and some adjuncts and off flavors too. Tihs was not very good at all.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Bottle Pours a clear copper with a good off white head. The head leaves quickly. Aroma of caramel malts. Hasan okay carbonation. The flavor is slightly sweet with a bitter ending. Has a watery texture. A light body. It is a easy to drink beer not real heavy. The finish is soft. No real mentionable aftertase. You could more than likely drink a bunch of these on a hot day but its not a super beer.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2009
Pours deep copper with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, not much else. Tastes of caramel malt, bittering hops, with slight brown sugary notes, yet is stays malty and unidimensional. Not a repeater for me, and not a great beer.

jmm635 (824) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Crystal clear copper color with a nice off-white head. Mostly sweet caramel on the nose with a malty base, very much indicative of the flavor. Light bodied and a little watery. Not something I’d go out of my way to recommend, but it’s drinkable.

Crisp malt aroma. Clear orange color with a medium white head. Very mild sweet beginning that fades in the finish.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAY 7, 2009
12oz bottle from Brian (dogfish120love), thanks man. Medium copper pour with a pretty nice white head that held up pretty well. Couldn’t get alot of aroma from this, slight caramel that’s about it. More caramel in the flavor, some light toastiness as well, not too bad.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Copper, creamy off white head. Lightly toasted caramel notes ride undercurrents of soft chocolate and bread. Soft toffee biscuit notes round with a light hop bitterness. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Quite drinkable..

KUEric (884) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 1, 2009
12 oz bottle: A deep amber caramel color, with a nice caramel aroma and flavor. Mostly malts are the flavor with a littly too watery of a flavor. Its good, but seems thin. Has some grain/wheat/grass flavor as well. A touch of citrus.

swoopjones (5333) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 28, 2009
UPDATED: APR 29, 2009 On tap at Coles. Good tap handle sub par beer. Little aroma miniscule caramel malts. Light to medium caramel color. Little taste beyond some sweet caramel malts. Probably will sell due to Buxom Blonde tap handle & mass market limited palates.
