12 oz. bottle poured into a chilled mug at Smashburger in Wantagh, N.Y.

Appearance: Pours a clear gold/copper color with a one-inch white head that recedes to film gradually. Lacing is low to moderate.

Aromas: This has an attractive nose with notes of citrus, grapefruit, some faint caramel and a nice amount of floral hops. Alcohol not noticeable.

Taste: This is a good, sturdy pale ale that is well above average. Flavors follow the nose. Very crisp, clean and easy drinking. Good stuff.

Mouthfeel: Leans towards light of body, but it doesn't come across as a flaw.

Overall: Another Blue Point seasonal that is mighty good but leaves me wondering, "Why is this a seasonal?" It's pretty much a straight pale ale that would work for any season. I expect slightly wackier, more experimental things out of seasonal beers (spices, weird flavors, more obscure styles, etc.). That said, this is really good.

Spring fling pours a clear copper colored body with a moderate sized, really light beige, yellow tinted head with average retention and lacing. Smells of light toasted bready malts and... thats it, maybe a hint of floral hops but I may be fooling myself.

Taste starts with bready and toasty malts, moving to light floral hops in the middle, with a caramel malt finish. Has a touch of a metallic aftertaste. Body is a bit heavier than average, carbonation is moderate, nice crisp finish.

A: Copper, as stated on the bottle. Thin head and thin lacing. No haziness.

S: Smells like hops. Wasn't really expecting a pale ale since it's called a copper ale - which can also mean a malty beer. Anyways, floral and citrus hops mostly.

T: Spicy with a definite earthy tone. A tiny bit of a metallic taste on the back end.

M: Light bodied and smooth.

O: The initial taste was pretty nice but the finish killed it for me. Slightly like a macro with the metallic taste. Fix the finish on this and its a nice brew. Definitely will not buy this again combined with the fact that InBev is taking over Blue Point.
