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.

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

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.

Bottle from dragon pack. Pours a clear coppery orange with fair light-tan head. Malty and slightly nutty aroma. A pretty good vienna lager, but I still prefer modelo.

Kinz (3362) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2008
At long last, the elusive spring lager that I’ve been missing for years. Deep gold in color, decent head, clear. Aroma was sweet honey accented malts and some floral hops. Flavor matched, definitely pushing on the sweet honey side of the malt world. Hop focused with some balancing noble hops on the finish. Nicely done brew, just a touch sweeter than I like. I would have preferred things to be a bit cleaner.

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.

From the tap poured a straw color with a fair amount of head. Grassy malty flavor with a quick finish.

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.
