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.

hotstuff (4393) - Indiana, USA - APR 3, 2014
Rated on 3-28-2011 (Bottle purchased at Total Wine & More-Ft. Myers, FL) This beer pours a medium sized off-white fizzy head with a short retention, transparent amber body, fast rising carbonation, and a substantial amount of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, grassy, citrus, sweet, and spicy. The taste is lightly bitter, caramel malt, grassy, citrus hops and has a dry finish. The mouthfeel is lively and this beer is medium bodied. The hops are upfront in the flavor and there is a lingering hoppy bitter aftertaste. It is not over-the-top hoppy tasting and is a nice beer on this humid late March Florida day.

DruncanVeasey (7424) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2014
Jettisoned bottle packing, room 212, UWS, 22/02/14. Deep lazily bubbling copper capped with a fine off-white mousse. Nose of bile, diluted OJ, fallen leaves, slight butter and Southern Comfort. Smooth and slightly warm at this hour with a hazelnut and orange hinting mellow fuzz of alcohol. Some mild roast and undeveloped hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Half-decent malt background; chocolate hints, minerals, almond. Amped up BSEB.

chinchill (2709) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 30, 2014
12 oz bottle served in a Belgian Snifter. Pours a clear, deep copper-amber; a shade darker than average for style. Flavor: good balance, if a bit higher in the malt/hop ration than usual for style. Feel: crisp, near medium body with a semi-dry finish. O: well balanced, slightly mild version of an APA.

boto (1922) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Draught @ Headkeeper: This one pours a crystal clear, golden color. There was just a wisp of a white head on it. There was no lacing. The nose is lighter yet nice. Grassy and earthy hops, some malts. The taste is good. It is slightly bitter and dry. Earthy hops, some malts in background. Pretty good!

Strykzone (5349) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2013
12 ounce bottle. A frothy off white head leaves thick lacing. The beer is copper hued. This is nutty and malty. Hops are light and tend to pop in and out. Crackery malts with caramel. Some grain. Hops bring some brightness late and darker fruit and bitterness come after that. Citrus. A nicely balanced beer.
