This is a very solid choice when it comes to selecting a sessionable, tasty lager. It is light, crisp, and has just enough wheat/malt flavour to make it interesting. If I want to grab a sixer of beer for a social function, this is one of my "go to" beers. When Spring brewery first started, Spring Lager was a staple of my visits to Kelowna. I love the fact that they are still brewing quality beer.

341 ml bottle served cold into a pint glass. Part of gift pack for birthday present.

Appearance - clear pale golden color with small half finger of foam. Minimal bubbles in the bottle and poor retention.

Smell - rich malts and a slight floral aspect. Not a lot else but there doesn't need to be.

Taste - bright and clear tasting, nice malt presence and a slight hop bitterness throughout. Pretty well constructed.

Mouthfeel - clean with moderate carbonation and a light body.

Overall - a good beer from this tasters pack, definitely the lone winner in my mind. A nice Canadian option of an under represented style.

I thought this was pretty good. Nice refreshing. Nothing special but not offensive.
