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 from Dragon Pack. Copper pour with deep gold edges and nose of hops, mild spice, nuts, malt. Tastes malty, nutty, with backup hops, honey, and very smooth. This is a solid lager from these guys, who I love.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 21, 2006
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.

Braudog (5999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 23, 2008
Bottle. Poured with quite a roar of carbonation that quickly turned into a meow. The aroma is quite biscuity, like freshly baked dark bread. Drinks with a full caramel coke, rich and malty, and a kiss of hop at the finish. (#3432, 4/23/2008)

Keg @ Station 2. Light chestnut brown with a creamy white head. Nice toasty nose. Roasted nuts, moderate caramel. A touch of singed grass and berry. Mellow toasty malts. More caramel and brown bread. Slightly spicy hop bitterness on the finish. Just a bit of butter. Light, deft. Moderate carbonation. Overall a very solid vienna.
