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.

blankboy (6422) - 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.

AshtonMcCobb (3552) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 9, 2013
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.

JFGrind (1892) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Copper ale, with medium bitterness, caramel sweet malts and citrus undertones. Enjoyable, Spring beer that blazes its on path, with an Amber Ale style beer.

Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Copper brew with white head. Aroma of floral hops, a little metal. Taste is nicely malty at the start with a decent amount of spice and bitter in the finish. Enjoyable.

Mora2000 (5893) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Orange with a white head. The aroma and flavor are pretty basic but no offensive. I get some strong grass and grain notes in both of them. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours basic amber with a slight white head and little to no lacing. Light sweet, malty and somewhat citrusy aroma. Taste is big and malty with a nice sweetness but not too much and a little bit of hoppy bitterness to balance things out. A great spring seasonal that would go great with a variety of meals.

DialSquare (3177) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2013
12oz bottle from ABC on Betton. Gold pour with thin off white. Aroma is caramel, grain and pine. Tastes are almost tart, astringent, faint bitter, grain, sweet malts, light spices. Crisp and enjoyable enough despite the description.

EithCubes (5187) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 30, 2013
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.
