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 pours a perfect clear copper with thin off white head. The aroma has sugar sweet malts and a mix of spicy hops and oily grapefruit rind. The taste is pretty hop forward with spicy hops and tart and bitter citrus hops that roll toward a brief mild note of malt graininess as well as faint sweet caramel, butterscotch and fruity esters.

12 ounce bottle pours a dark copperr color with a thin bubbly head. Had the an even balance of hops and malt when I took a whiff. Tastes of some malt, sweetness, and a hint of caramel.

murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear amber/copper with a thin beige head that clings to the side of the glass. The aroma is a nice combination of bready, earthy malts and spicy hops. Fairly light bodied with medium carbonation and flavors of caramel and toasted malt. A hint of hoppiness with some light bitterness on the finish, but the flavor is dominated by malts. Light malt sweetness, not quite as refreshing as I expected. Not a bad beer, but nothing special.

Sampled on tap. Poured amber with white head. Aroma is bright bits of malt and some faint flural aromas. Flavor is a bit clean and dry. Body is medium to light.

robgibbens (417) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - MAY 4, 2011
Spring Fling pours a deep copper with a thick head with some good lacing. A malty, yeasty aroma permeates the head. As it warms, there is even some spice coming through the nose. This brew is light in the mouth and finishes clean. The flavor of malt comes through with hints of grain and earthiness. Spring Fling is medium bodied brew.

mlunger12 (645) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2011
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 (10438) - 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 (1149) - 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]

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.
