Bottle:   Reddish caramel, very hazy, large fluffy off-white head, enjoyable lacing.   Malt oriented nose, very slight graininess.   Very little hop presense, if any.   Hmmm... on first sip I noticed that for an Organic its not as earthy/grainy as I have come to expect.   Its actually a bit malty, with a soft hop background.   This one is pretty easy to drink, and certainly a bit better than I expected.   Well rounded, feels fairly hefty for a Pale Ale.   Paler than most, er ligher perhaps, not as hop oriented, but I am a stickler about North West Pale Ales.   Its actually more appealing that its not all that grainy.   Decent little offering.

Picked up at the new Hop City in Atlanta, Georgia. 22 oz. Nice caramel/orange in color. Thin head sitting on top. Little hazy, but still nice. Good looking beer. Slight hop aroma, but mianly biscuit and malts. Pungent aroma ,but not my favorite type of aroma. Very sweet beer at first, with a subtle hop aroma that develops into a decent bittering hop flavor. Leaves some decent lacing. The hops dont play as big of a role as I would like them to. The caramel sweet malt flavor is what stands out the most. Not a huge Butte Creek fan.

Pours nice copper color with a small off white head. Caramel and biscuit malts are quite prominent in the aroma with a nice balance from the piney hops. The flavor is similar, but the hops stand out nicely from the sweat and toasty malt background. Also picked this one up at Jungle Jims for $1.99, what a steal.

3/16/2009: Spring Run is an all-around good, solid pale ale. I like it. Its toffee maltiness is paired nicely with a honey sweetness. It is slightly dry and grainy in the middle. The front is balanced by a moderate level of pine and grassy bitterness. I could really just sit around and drink this well-bopped pale ale all day. I definitely need to go back and pick up a bunch more of this for the price (only $1.99+tax/bomber!).

1pt., 6fl. oz. bottle (5.7% alc. by vol) from Jungle Jims International Market in Fairfield, Ohio. Rating #14 for this beer.

Bomber. Poured translucent brighter orange with a short cap of white head. The aroma picked up soft bready and caramel notes with vibrant citrusy and grassy accents.. smelled at the back like it may have a boozy bite. The flavor had an almost syrupy caramel base with moderate-to-high grapefruit and piney bitterness surrounding.. not bad, but nothing really popped. Medium-bodied with lower carbonation on the palate.. I didn’t much care for the long bitter finish that didn’t have any real flavor behind it.. aiight overall.

pours a clear copper under a large foamy yellow head. fresh hoppy aroma, mostly floral, with some spicy malts. a bit of pepper. flavor is hoppy and moderately bitter. the malts are slightly restrained giving it a bit of a watery texture and mild soapy taste. but overall it’s pretty good.

Dark copper color with a small beige head. Flavor and aroma of citrus and piney hops and caramel malts. Pretty good and drinkable.
