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 - Clear caramel color with fair amount of head. LIght aroma and balanced taste which is slightly sweet on the finish. Preferred this brew over the St George Lager.

Pours out brownish color. Taste is sweet and fairly refreshing. Something I could drink alot of. An interesting brew to say the least, though I wouldnt recommend it over others of the style.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with The_Beer_God (thanks!). Poured a deeper orange color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of grass, biscuity, caramel, and it also has a very light fruitiness to it. Tastes of grass, caramel, and bready.

12oz bottle. Not too bad. Hoppy, with some light and very crisp taste. Nice finish. Not a huge head.

Was pleasantly suprised at the nice hop balance of this beer. Generally i would have thought of a spring lager as a being crisp, light, and malty, but this takes that and adds respectable hop backbone. Cheers.

Puored from a 12oz bottle a dark amber with a beige head. I had floral/grassy hops in the nose. The same grassy hops were in the flavor with a touch of sweet malts.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 15, 2006
Reddish-bown body with a light white head. Grassy and corn-on-the-cob aroma. Heavy grasses and hops in the taste, the hops mute the grasses somewhat. Corn-on-the-cob ending. Very nice for a lager.

Draft at the Green Leafe in Williamsburg on 5-29-05. Copper bodied with a small white head. Nose is caramel, malts, light grassy hops, and light cocoa. Taste brings out light caramel notes, creamy malts, mild hoppiness, dried fruits (for some reason I could swear I picked up melon), light cocoa and tea leaves. Body is medium with a light carbonation feel. Finishes with creamy maltiness, light cocoa, bigger fruitiness, light hops, brown sugar and thinned caramel.
