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.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 11, 2006
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

RABinCO (1372) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2012
12oz bottle. Iím not huge on lagers, but Iíve been loving this one. Pours a dark/reddish hay with a slight head. Smells and tastes more like a toasty pilsner. As a "Spring" beer i think it does the job perfectly. Light, refreshing, nothing offensive.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Off taps at Capital Ale house. Clear copper color with tiny head. Aroma may be vienna style malts but was hard to get in a smoky bar with odors of pickles and perfume wafting by. Fairly hoppy flavor with some yeast fruityness and moderate malt backbone. Reasonably light mouthfeel with moderate arbonation. Good light drinking beer that might be a good introduction to craft brewed beers.

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.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 27, 2006
Golgen amber color with a overflowing head. Smell of malt, hops honey and alcohol. Taste of honey, cork, rye, hops, malt and a hint of flowers. A nutty bitterness at the end.

The feeling I get from this brew is not much.....Taste is watery and amazingly absent. Pour is nice brown and has a beautiful thick 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.
