2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
16oz draft at Seattle Taproom at Seatac. Clear golden color. Head leaves lots of lacing. Head is bubbly rather than foamy, thus I’m surprised about the lacing. Cold beer hides the flaws. But even through the freeze I pick out unfortunate diacetyl. Also overly grassy hops. Flavor is strong in bitterness and grassy hops with sweet diacetyl. Some skunky hops at the back end as well. I don’t know this Alpine but I was very disappointed.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep gold pour with fluffy white head and lace. Aroma is light malt with a touch of floral hops. flavor is light sweet malt with a flat papery bitter that isn’t oxidation. Light bodied with good carbonation that thins at the end. ok beer that left me wanting something more.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the Seattle Taproom at Seatac.
Pours bright gold with very little head. Nose is big on bread dough, a bit of grassy hops. Flavor, too, is bready. A bit of hop presence later, again grassy, kind of an old-school American pils (read: not particualrly good), hint of candy sweetness. This is perfectly drinkable and without glaring flaws, but it is also rather unimpressive.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A little fruity, a little bitter. Not boring but not complex. It develops from the nose to the tongue and down the throat - a smell of soapy citrus, a start of bitter orange-y brightness, and a bitter finish with a hint of laundry-soap florals (but not in a terribly unpleasant way)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Seattle Tap Room (Sea-Tac Airport), as Alpine Bohemian Pilsner
Hazy blond color with compact head. The malts here offer a cereal edge (where bread and biscuit would be preferred); quite strong bitterness, although the grassy touch if the hops is very subdued.
Timid Pilsner. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at Outlander. Pours a slightly hazy straw color with a thin white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of mildly bitter herbal hops and malt. The finish is lightly hoppy up front with a short grainy malt aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.
