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.

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 (3453) - 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.

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 (5681) - 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 (6375) - 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 (11560) - 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.

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 (9998) - 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.
