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.

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 (3379) - 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 (4391) - 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.

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.

Draft at Momos Pizza. Clear copper pour with a foamy white head. Nose is light crystal malts and caramel with hints of floral hops. Clean, sweet flavor with caramel and nuttiness. Nothing to see here....

Beautiful copper color. A weak aroma, very easy drinking beer. A hint of floral at the end, nothing sweet for a spring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foxbush (1283) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2012
12 oz bottle This was purchased from Corks and Kegs. They have a nice selection of beers and ales. The clear honey colored ale had a small head with some lacing. There was some hint of bitter hops but the sweetness of the caramel malts was more dominent. The carbonation was average with a clean finish.
