Bottle. As this pours into the glass I do a double take and then look again at the bottle. Yep... it definitely says "Spring Fling Copper Ale." I guess you could call it copper, but a really really pale copper... more of an amber. I take a sniff and come across an unconvincing mix of caramel and peppery spice notes, maybe with a little orange peel or something vaguely citrusy. Flavor is OK, but a kind of uninteresting amber ale type mix. Spicy hops up front, a little bit of caramel and biscuit in the midsection and a little bitter tang on the finish. Ho hum. Nothing to write home about here... Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - APR 28, 2012

Bottle: The aroma consists of light-moderate caramel, toffee, nuts, and a touch of honey. It pours a transparent amber with a creamy two finger white head that fades to a thin film within a minute or so. There’s is some decent webbing left behind on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of caramel followed by some light honey. The finish has some light nuttiness mixed with toasty and herbal notes. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, it’s pretty much your standard Amber Ale...drinkable, but nothing too exciting.
Pours a coppery amber color. Has a nice malty flavor with some great bittery hopness. Pretty good flavors actually.. Wasn’t expecting it!!!! jredmond (8284) - New York, New York, USA - APR 8, 2012
Draft at good beer with Linh. Pours a golden body with white lacing. Aroma is boring - practically nothing here, maybe some honey and sweet malts. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of light honey, restrained hop character and bland malts. PhillyCraft (7225) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2012
Bottle pours a clearish glowing orange color. Medium white head that faded immediately. No lacing. Aromas of honey, mead, barley, overly spicy hops. Hard to finish. Very boring amber ale. Do yourself a favor and grab a nugget nectar instead!

Draft. Poureed clear amber color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate spice hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Flavor was moderate bittersweet with an average bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good soft brew.

Pours clear amber color with tan head. Lightly toasted malt aroma with some grains. Mildly sweet malt flavor with a slight medicinal taste. Medium body with average carbonation. doboy (424) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2012
This was OK. Love the guys at Bluepoint! Pours an amber color with a lace head around the glass. A touch of carbonation noticed. taste was of a malt and very light hops. Looking for a little more of the "Let’s party" hops and flavor. Palate was nice. Aftertaste was ok. Not bad, would drink it before a Bud or Miller!

Generally, a fresh malty aroma though there were a couple of off tones right when you opened the bottle. Bad, busy label with the Partridge Family font. Clear, or almost clear medium amber beer. Woody, hoppy, dry, a little spice and dry caramel. Medium light and spritzy body, woody bitter aftertaste. A not-quite-crisp finish. Not bad, not overly ambitious, etither.
