COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. George Spring Lager is a classical example of what many consider to be the original lager beer. Amber-colored and medium bodied with a rich, roasted malt character this beer has a smooth, slightly sweet malt flavor with traditional German hops providing a noble, perfectly-balanced hop bitterness. A slightly fruity, dry finish tops off this style as does a thick, creamy white head.

Bottle; found this in my beer stash; should have had it during the right season. Oh well. Poured an orange copper with small white head. Aroma of honey, caramel, grass and flowers. Flavor was a combination of those aromas. A slight sweetness throughout. Decent hop presence on the finish that was slightly peppery. Palate was good.

Best of the St George I have had so far. Clear copper with light head and not much lace. Fruity smell and just enough hops to remind your tongue who is in charge. I liked it.

A surprise hoppiness hit me when I opened the bottle. Slight fruityness to the aroma that almost had a hint of berries. Taste was similar but was rounded out by a malty backbone. I hope to see this in 6-packs as I could easily drink a few in one sitting and not tire of it one bit!

Tangy malty lager aroma, malt beginning with a zingey spicey hop finish, Slight sweetness in the aftertaste. Tastey enough to be above a lawnmower brew

Bottle thanks to Numenor: Pours a clear copper amber with a thin-lacing wispy off-white head. Sweet toasty earthy German malty aroma has some grainy notes and noble hoppiness. Body has some more sweet earthy malts with mild bitterness and a smooth, slightly drier, grainy finish. Well-balanced and true to style.
