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.

Fresh bottle. Nose is clean, thin caramel with bright lemony citrus and just a touch of whatever makes an amber ale "red" - crystal? Pours a clear, pale amber-copper with an off-white head. Taste is actually surprisingly dry, malt is thin and rather grainy, but this is sure as spit fermented out. Touch of wood and grainy bread, hops are sprizty and faintly citric but mostly kept to a minimum. Seems to be relatively clean, with a light and refreshing body.

Growler from ale yeah. Would not have put his in an amber category. Much closer to an apa in my opinion but whatever. It is an amber ish color. Caramel malt and candi sugar dominate. Faint grassy hops and a bit of pine and resin on the finish. Drinkable seasionable beer but nothing incredibly earth shattering.

Floral aroma. Over carbonated. Copper color. Pilsner bitter taste. Not my thing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear golden brown on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave light lace. Atoms of sweet caramel and honey, bready grain, and a hint of grassy citrus hop notes. Taste follows, but the hips kind of die off leaving a sweeter malt character. Decent fit what it is.

This was a little disappointing for a spring beer. It had a very hoppy aroma and drinks more like a pale ale than a spring. The beer itself is good, but compared to other spring ales it just seem status quo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cybercat (2991) - Georgia, USA - MAR 3, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2013 Comes out of the tap a nice clear amber with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled ivory head. Aroma is malty, fruity, and slightly sweet. Fruit and sweetness dominates the otherwise malty flavor, still a delight. Texture has about average firmness and fizz, leaving a fruity finish. If not outstanding, still enjoyable and refreshing, good for bringing a bit of spring into a chilly day.

ChainGangGuy (4281) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 1, 2013
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours clear with an apropos copper hued and a medium-small, receding, white head.

Smell: Honey nut, toasted grain-flecked bread, faintest light brown sugar. Hops throw off some modest notes of citrus peel, mild resin and a light grassiness.

Taste: Malts tasting of toasted grain, toasted bread with a light whisper of brown sugar and honey sweetness. Lightly nutty. Zesty, slightly grassy hops with enough bitterness to balance it out. Drying finish, with a lingering, gentle fruitiness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation with a pleasant, sudsy texture to it.

Overall: An easy-drinking ale, not overly hoppy nor particularly malty.

fluffy (1328) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - FEB 9, 2013
this was a little lighter than i was expecting on the palate(it was in a glass, and in the dark i thought it might have been a PA), but easily redrinkable. fresh hops, a bit of grassiness, a decent balance of malt backbone. not bad at all.
