From 06/22/12 notes. On tap at Amity Hall down on W 3rd St. in NYC. Served in a pint glass.

a - Pours a hazy golden yellow color with one finger of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of wheat, grains, and bready malts. Nose isn't bad but pretty bland and average.

t - Tastes of floral notes, light fruity malts, wheat, grains, and bready malts. Much better than the nose and mroe going on here.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Easy to drink.

o - Overall a decent APA. The nose is pretty bland but it is easy to dirnk and the taste has some nice light fruits and hops to it.

Blue Point Spring Fling Ale is a very clear amber ale with a thin white head that quickly fades to a film and leaves decent lacing. It smells sweet like malt with a little grassiness. It's pretty light bodied and reasonably smooth with a very dry finish. It's hoppier than I expected after smelling it. It's pretty resiny and bitter without any noticeable sweetness. It tastes pretty wooden overall. This kind of seems like an ESB.

Twelve ouncer poured into a pint glass. Grabbed in a mixed six offering.

Pours medium amber, mostly light, with touches of foam. Malty rich caramel smell, some toffee. Hearty malt taste with a good firm hop. Nice bite at close, really pops the flavor.

Overall another good one from BP.

On tap at Sawmill Tap Room 4/28/12

A - orangish amber; thin lacing of white head; little retention

S - very little is anything in the nose; faintly metallic

T - citrusy, caramel, faint chocolate, fruity

M - medium bodied, smooth, lightly carbonated

This was a bit disappointing. It didn't have much flavor-wise that stood out, but it had some characteristics that lead me more towards an amber ale. In the end it was boring, unbalanced, and not specifically stylistic.
