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.

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 (1850) - 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 (4931) - 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.

blankboy (6046) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
Draught at Good Beer, N.Y., June 1. Pours a hazy copper-gold with a small frothy off-white head. Sweet aroma of caramel malt. Flavour of grain, caramel malt, a hint of diacetyl, some light sugary sweetness and a light bitter finish. Average bodied. I didn’t much care for this.

Bottle thanks to Lewis. Pours amber with a nicely proportioned head. The nose has biscuits, cake mixture and a fresh spicy hop. The taste has more of the same. The palate is close to medium bodied with a nice balanced middle and finish. Overall, a good ale.
