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, 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 (889) - San Francisco, California, 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 (6966) - 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.

Sammy (9677) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2009
On-tap at Cole’s. Some colour, a bit of hop aroma.But then too sweet to take seriously, though some citrus behind it. A lagerish version of orange punch? A bit above average mouthfeel. Some drinkability to it, dessertish. Blue point is doing beer a bit differently, however to appeal to mass public.

shadey (1996) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 21, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a nice amber with a thin head of tight white bubbles. Aroma is sweet caramel malts and just a touch of cleansing hops. Flavors are sweet, but still bright and fresh. Very easy to drink.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - APR 18, 2009
Poured a copper hue with a thin white head. Aroma was rather weak with some malt notes and a grainy note. Water was present in the aroma. Flavor was also mild but did have a slightly bitter grain note. It did not seem hoppy. Finish was smooth and light. Crisp summer beer.

ben4321 (4826) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 31, 2009
Location: 6 pack of 12 oz bottles from a Morton Williams in NYC

Aroma: Citrus, caramel, grains
Appearance: Copper, clear, thin white head
Flavor: Grainy sweetness, a little caramel (stronger in the nose then the taste) and a citrus finish
Palate: Medium (tending toward light) body, nice smooth drink
Overall Impression: Overall this is a decent springtime beer (though it was pretty cold in NYC last week). I guess its grouped as a specialty grain due to the rye taste, but otherwise I thought the labeling of copper ale was pretty accurate. Nice offering, will save a few for warmer days, and see how they do in that environment.
