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 (7129) - 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 (5623) - Hampton, Virginia, 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)

TheBeerGod (5218) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 30, 2005
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.

kramer (4892) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper body with a small patchy off-white head. The nose has that cooked veggie undertone I have found in a few other of their beers. Some toasty malt otherwise. Same with the flavor too, I want something a lot cleaner from a Lager. No vienna malt character. Some snappy hops almost redeem the finish, but then they fade away leaving me with those cooked veggies. Medium bodied with a little clinginess and a flabby feel on the back end. Moderate fizzy carbonation. Not so good. What’s with the cooked veggies in their beers?
