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.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 16, 2008
Cask at Pacific Standard. Hazy dark golden pour with almost a gray/green tint. Some hops and rye grain on the nose; seems promising, like it will be crisp and refreshing. Hit my palate the wrong way those: something really ashy and unpleasantly bitter. Particularly because I was drinking this side-by-side with a lovely Belgian rye also on cask, this just didn’t do it for me.

rugbydude05 (478) - Bridgewater, NJ, New Jersey, USA - AUG 13, 2008
On tap at patchogue brewery. Pours a hazy red color, nice hoppy aroma, very appealing. Taste was a good mix between bitter and sweet. Good crisp aftertaste. I liked this beer a lot and wish it were more widely available.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Aroma of rye seed, rye bread, light citrus and floral hops. Flavor very rye malty, sweet rye, with bittering hops rubbing up against it. Bitter finish but never completely obstructs the rye malt. Pretty tasty.

LilBeerDoctor (3509) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Pours orange with a small light tan head. Aroma of bitter rye seed. Flavor of rye and parmesean cheese with a bitter hops finish. Too bitter for me.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Draft. Pours a light yelllow body with a white head. Aroma is bitter hoppiness with some earthy notes and malt. Plain and simple not much to the flavor a little pine from the hops which disipates slowly.

zach8270 (3769) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2008
(cask @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Amber in color with a soapy white head. Aroma is very hoppy and floral with some sweet hints. Flavor is bitter and floral at the start with some caramel and malt notes afterwards and a finish that has a nice mixture of pine and citrus. Bitter taste lingers on the tongue for a bit.

Sregnar35 (1007) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - APR 27, 2008
