3.03/5  rDev -13.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Served out of a bottle and poured into a chilled glass

A Has a nice amber color with a subtle creamy head.

S Slight malty aroma, not much else...I will wait a bit for this to warm up and see if there are any other notes.

T Has a sharp bitterness up front with a lingering bitter finish/ after taste. Not really to much to get excited about.

M A bit zinggy on the tounge

Overall this is an average beer. Spring ales are supposed to be too complex but I cant see myself drinking more than one or two of these. Probably more worth the try on a warm summer day.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Bought on tap and from the looks of the lack of info on the site. It think it is on tap only.

appearance - Nice copper color, and a nice foamy head with some lacing.

smell - grainy and hoppy.

taste - Taste was sweet with a small touch of malt and then ended with a bitterness and hop flavor.

mouthfeel - light medium body with some carbination.

drinkability - Nice spring beer. I rated this average because I do not like beer that is bitter and taste like grapefruit.

A - pours a clear reddish orange color with 1/4 inch of foam that quickly gave way to just a ring of bubbles on the surface

S - very sublte aroma, a little bit of grassiness and malts

T - mostly malts up front with the grassiness coming through midway to finish with a malty taste in the back of your mouth

M/D - nice carbonation and mouthfeel. overall not a bad tasting brew, probably not my first choice, but thats more the style than anything else

On-tap at Cole's. Some colour, a bit of hop aroma.But then too sweet to take seriously, though some citrus behind it. A lagerish version of orange punch? A bit above average mouthfeel, I believe from the use of brown sugar. Some drinkability to it, dessertish.Had it a year later on tap at Cole's again, and again its appearance and mouthfeel as strong points.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

12 oz. brown bottle.

A: Pours a clear copper color with a large foamy white head. Pretty good retention
and lacing.

S: Sweet malts and some dry floral hops. Overall pretty clean and crisp.

T/M: Starts with sweet malts and light floral hops. Good balance, might be a little
malt heavy. Chewy caramel, medium bodied with an easy crisp feel and a dry hoppy
aftertaste.

O: Not much to say other than it is a good ale. Tastes more like a British Pale Ale, than
an American one. Easy to drink but with little standing out in the taste. Still enjoyable,
but nothing I'd get again.

Cheers!

3.2/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

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.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter - Fridge - 2009

Appearance: Pours a copper color with orange highlights. The head rises 1/4" and is off-white. No retention at all, it goes away rather quickly. No lace either.

Smell: Cereal grain, toasted barley, and an earthy mushroom aroma.

Taste: Pinchy alcohol and carbonation. More cereal grain and maybe a tad bit of hops. Not overly complex.

Mouthfeel: Lots of active carbonation in the mouth. A bite of alcohol in the finish.

Drinkability: A straightforward bock style beer. Pretty refreshing and solid, worth consuming in repetition.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A- Pours a nice translucent copper color with a finger width white head. Some thin lacing sticks to the glass.

S- I'm getting some slight citrus hop aromas with some bread like malts in the back. Aroma is very faint to me right now.

T- Decent hop bitterness with some citrus like flavors carrying threw. Also getting a decent malt character.Good balanced flavors create an easy drinking beer.

M- Body is on the lighter side with clean refreshing taste. Good beer choice for the warmer weather coming.

O - Solid beer with easy drinkabilty. Would definitely pick this one up again. Cheers!
