Alpine isnít the greatest beer in the world. However, itís the kinda beer you like to keep on hand to have a quick drink after work.....and itís 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 canít 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.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale clear yellow, quickly dissappearing white head, no lacing. Aroma is way too weak, I have a mild cold, but I can smell nothing at all. Taste is also rather weak, though it has some nice subtle hoppiness which works well with the bready malts. Simple, uni-dimensional, better than Molson, but not by a whole lot. Bottle.

Enroute to PEI, a local NB gal recommended this one highly. While on PEI i bought a case and drank this as an everyday beer. better than most Molsons, it has a non-skunky crisp pleasant light to moderate aroma and taste, and while not totally excellent, is a good everyday primer beer. Moderate flavor from beginning to finish and on the dry side. Definitely would drink it again while @ Cavendish, but with all the draughts available on the island at pubs, eateries, etc, I'd just keep this in the room.

Straight forward american standard. Just one of many bland, same beers that I had the pleasure of disjoying (that's the opposite of enjoying right?) when I visited "the Island".
