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.

Used to like this a lot more - not sure if my tastes have changed, or it has. Either way, this is still a decent Spring Copper Ale, but there is nothing special about it.

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

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.

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- 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!

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!
