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.

Trooper11 (468) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - NOV 4, 2007
As luck would have it!! At my local Navy package store, I grab the last dragon pack and low and behold, the only St George brew I have not sampled. Pours a golden amber, average head, thick lacing. Nutty caramel sweet malt aroma, notes of pancake syrup. Bitter malt flavor, thick body, semi dry, nutty and honey notes. Earthy finish.

kramer (4866) - 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?

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.
