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.

hopdog (8867) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2006
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.

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.

CaptainCougar (7131) - 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.

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

bryandhargrave (165) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2007
Best of the St George I have had so far. Clear copper with light head and not much lace. Fruity smell and just enough hops to remind your tongue who is in charge. I liked it.

DocLock (7832) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2009
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.

Butters (3751) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2008
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.
