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.

Draft at the Green Leafe in Williamsburg on 5-29-05. Copper bodied with a small white head. Nose is caramel, malts, light grassy hops, and light cocoa. Taste brings out light caramel notes, creamy malts, mild hoppiness, dried fruits (for some reason I could swear I picked up melon), light cocoa and tea leaves. Body is medium with a light carbonation feel. Finishes with creamy maltiness, light cocoa, bigger fruitiness, light hops, brown sugar and thinned caramel.

Butters (4059) - 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.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 16, 2006
Clear dark amber color with a thin frothy off-white head. Light sweet malt aroma. Sweet flavor with lots of grassiness.

3.5
Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2008
At long last, the elusive spring lager that I’ve been missing for years. Deep gold in color, decent head, clear. Aroma was sweet honey accented malts and some floral hops. Flavor matched, definitely pushing on the sweet honey side of the malt world. Hop focused with some balancing noble hops on the finish. Nicely done brew, just a touch sweeter than I like. I would have preferred things to be a bit cleaner.

alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Bottle; found this in my beer stash; should have had it during the right season. Oh well. Poured an orange copper with small white head. Aroma of honey, caramel, grass and flowers. Flavor was a combination of those aromas. A slight sweetness throughout. Decent hop presence on the finish that was slightly peppery. Palate was good.

jeremytoni (3058) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2012
From the tap poured a straw color with a fair amount of head. Grassy malty flavor with a quick finish.

2.9
ross (2146) - 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.
