It’s pale yellow. Has a breif head. Aroma is weak, and what you can smell isn’t enticing. Aroma aside, it is an excellent lager.
If you see this beer, try it! It’s hard to be a lager fan and not enjoy this beer. It’s not exotic in anyway, but it’s a great typical maritime beer. If you try one and don’t like it, try another!

Bouteille de 341 ml achetée à la ANB d’Edmundston lors d’un séjour dans la région du mont Carleton. Arôme: Odeur fruitée. Apparence: Couleur blonde. Large col mousseux. Moyenne densité des bulles. Aucune dentelle. Saveur: Goût fruité. Court arrière goût. Palette: Le corps et la texture sont mince. Faible effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût fruité. Une bonne petite bière à prendre en jouant au carte avec ma famille acadienne. (Rating #316)

Bottle at The Silver Fox, Summerside, PEI. Pale yellow-gold. Sweet malt in both aroma and flavour. Light hops in the finish. Decent enough for the style, and certainly better than most Maritime favourites.

Have plenty of friends who swear by this beer, yet can’t seem to understand the craze over it. Seems to be a favorite in NB though.

Alpine isn’t the greatest beer in the world. However, it’s the kinda beer you like to keep on hand to have a quick drink after work.....and it’s also the first beer I ever remember drinking in my life!

After spending several years in the southern US, the first Alpine I tasted felt like angels were pouring it down my throat. If you are looking for a good, solid, session beer Alpine is the best. If you are looking for something exotic, move along.

My wife picked this up for me in Canada. The locals said it won awards and was a good beer that was not sold in the USA. Well, I am not shedding any tears that I can’t get this beer in the USA. I will not make any special trips to get it either. The beer was very average to me.

slight hop and malt aroma. straw color with a big head at first fading down in to a lace. flavors of malt cookies and a slight hop flavor then a faint bitterness.not very impressive. still better than bud.

A favorite with the locals. A great beer for outdoor activities. An excellent beer for enjoying around the campfire. Goes well with any food.

Like most East Coast Canadians, I grew up with this. Must be very cold.
One thing to clarify, You have to live on the East Coast to get it. I make sure when I visit I get some.
