Refreshing Zesty Ale 4.0%

One of our best-loved seasonal ales, Spring Sprinter's popularity has grown in leaps and bounds since its first run in 2011. Light, zesty and refreshing, this is a pale amber ale with a real spring in its step

Not bottled, Spring Sprinter is available seasonally on the Fuller's Brewery Tour and in the Fuller's Brewery Shop and Tap Room

Catch it while you can

Something of a global affair, Spring Sprinter is brewed with Nelson Sauvin hops harvested in New Zealand. It's that touch of kiwi that gives rise to subtle citrus notes nicely balanced by English malts
