Spring fling

To celebrate the official arrival of spring, we picked up some Spring Fling Ale from Bluepoint Brewery.

It’s a copper ale, but that simply refers to its color.  I’ve come across pretty mixed reviews about this beer online, but for me, the beer shows a great balance between spicy hops and sweet malt.  It’s a on the fuller-bodied side, too, making it a great food partner – we paired it with roast chicken and asparagus. 

It’s certainly not as punchy as their Rastafa Rye or their Hoptical Illusion, but that’s the point.  This is an easy-drinking style that will get you daydreaming about camping, barbequing, fishing, baseball and all other modes of summer (and beer appropriate) fun.
