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.

12oz bottle poured into tulip, red color, filtered, white head that quickly disappears, not much of an aroma. Very earthy taste, very gritty and really cuts down on the drinkability. Alright.

Lubiere (9427) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2011
A golden amber ale with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, caramel malt with faint British hopping, grassy and smooth, light citrus notes. In mouth, a good crisp malt with some light toastyness, some some British hops, crisp and refreshing, with a nice lingering light bitterness. A quaffer!

I was new to this beer. im not sure how new it is but i must say i was really happy with it. i purchased this beer at the beginning of the season and i was glad that i did. i had them in a bottle and i was more than happy to finish the 6 in one sitting. its a definite ale with the obvious short lasting head with little to no carbonation. but its a really easy beer to drink that is worth trying.

Boliv (1148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear orange with a small off-white head. Aromas of sweet apricot and peach, grass, and fruit. The flavor is bitter grass, fruit pits, and some mild adjunct and astringency. Medium to high carbonation and a bit thin. Eh. [656]

keepersj12 (2560) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - APR 3, 2011
Nice summer beer. Goes down real easy. It has a big fluffy head giving off a malty aroma with a bit of hops. The flavor is malty sweet to start and nicely balanced with the bitterness.

Scopey (5506) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2011
Bottle at BA Lounge, JFK Airport. It pours golden yellow with a thick foamy white head. The nose is caramel, wood, grass and hay. The taste is wood, zesty lemon, lime, grapefruit, and caramel, with a low bitter finish. It is inoffensive and has limited complexity, but is easy enough to drink.

Slipstream (1932) - USA - APR 3, 2011
Pleasantly sweet aroma and attractive copper pour. This malty, sweet brew reminded me a little of something from a soda fountain. A dash of hops pokes its head up in the mix. Good.

3/19/11. 12oz bottle. Clear light copper pour with a huge fluffy off-white head that lasts forever. Plain malty aroma with hints of dry grain and spice. Dry grainy flavor that reminds of a spicy German lager. Meh.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2011
12oz bottle. Light copper color with a thin bubbly head. Aroma is somewhat bland with slight hints of honey. Flavor isn’t too exciting either. Bitter and slightly hoppy with a little bit of malt.

On tap at Rockaway Seafood Company. Golden - amber color with small white head, which fades after the first sip. Aroma was subdued and simple, citrus hoppiness and bready malt. Flavor is much the same, very simple palate of bitter hops over sweet malt. Carbonation maybe a little too high. Medium to full bodied. Finishes on the bitter side, finish is clean and short. Not much to it, but I enjoyed it with my steamed mussels.
