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.

PlainsDrifter (92) - Adelphi, Maryland, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Light golden, with white head. Thin and fizzy, very little malt flavor but nice hop spice - hint of citrus. Drinkable and decent but not strong on flavor and a little thin.

RobertDale (5082) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAY 24, 2016
Sample at Waldo Hopfest 2016. Comes golden red with a decent beige head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is malt, caramel, and a bit of fruit. Decent.

Maxbier (816) - Maryland, USA - MAY 3, 2016
Deep copper color with tan head. Light malty cracked corn aroma. Taste is slightly vegetal and sweet. Dry acetic finish with lingering bitter. Gets more palatable as it warms up.

N3lson1 (852) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2016
Drank at ACBF, pours a nice clear golden color, no noticeable aroma to speak of. A good brew threw and threw

BeerdedDave (1184) - - MAR 28, 2016
copper color; hops and bready, toasted malt; nothing really exciting about it, a boring, bland, mediocre pale ale

TXBadger (2379) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2016
Pours a clear coppery darker golden color with off-white head. Floral notes, citrus, and a little malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with more floral hop tones, but not to be outdone by a balancing malty backbone.

Finhead (1544) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2016
Clear, copper-amber pour with a white head. The aroma has salty pretzel along with floral hops. It has a medium body with crisp texture and lively carbonation. The taste is bitter with a dry finish.

hopscotch (10528) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2015
(St. Louis Cardinals Spring Training Game at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, FL) Draft... Pours clear and copper with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is toasty and a touch bready; otherwise, it’s bland and nondescript. Full-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor is toasty with a moderate measure of bread-crusty bitterness, but otherwise it’s as mundane and lifeless as the aroma. Finishes with light notes of grapefruit and bread-crusty bitterness.

puboflyons (2903) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 14, 2015
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is an attractive copper-light amber tone with a modest, lingering cream colored head. The aroma is full of sweet caramel malts and a low hop character but a touch of peat moss around the edges. Light to medium body. Sweet roasted malt sweetness in the taste offset quickly by a dry bitter finish. I found it to be drinkable and one I could easily have again.

hayduke (4458) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 3, 2015
From a bottle. This poured amber with an off-white head. Nose of caramel malts and pine hops/ Medium body. Flavor is caramel malts, some pine, and a dry finish. OK.
