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.

Copper colored,fairly clear. Some lacing, some retention. Aroma is grassy, sweet, some bread dough. Palate tastes of toffee, is somewhat thin. Has a bit of an English style to it. Okay.

jgb9348 (4738) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Slightly hazy amber coloured body with copper tints and a thinnish, fast-dying tan head. Aroma of malt, corn, metal, a light caramel scent and a touch of sugar. Light-bodied; Sharp pungent corn taste with rice, cardboard and rye noticeable up front fading to metal, bitter malt and gross nuttiness. Aftertaste just shows some off flavours with nothing pleasant - just a funky cardboard and fake taste. Overall, pretty bad and definitely not worth trying. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Chevy Chase Wine & Spirits on 25-July-2009, sampled on 08-September-2009 at home in Washington.

HogTownHarry (6108) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2009
Bottle (12oz). Clear bubbly amber-gold with a lasting fizzy straw-coloured head (4-). Smells of moderately roasty bready grain and light herbal bitterness, maybe a hint of extract-tang. Taste - ew, metal, pvc, cheap hop oil, caramel grain backing it up - ehhh. Fairly thick body, slick, weak carbonation, stick and a little harsh in the aftertaste, like dead grass or something. Dug the smell though.

hopdog (8940) - 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 (4351) - 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 (7861) - 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 (861) - 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.

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.
