3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
