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.

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.

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.

JediMindTricks (446) - Remington, Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2011
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

ross (2100) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - MAY 15, 2006
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.
