Samuel Adams Alpine Spring is yet another addition to the brewery’s Small Batch series. For this entry, Sammy & Co used the more traditional labeling. Starting in late October, you’ll see the first of the Small Batch hit the market – Tasman Red, Third Voyage, Griffin’s Bow, The Vixen. (Vixen just won GABF gold.) This unfiltered lager is perfect for spring. Noble Tettnang hops, grown in the foothills of the Alps, give the brew a bright citrus and floral aroma flavor. These are balanced by the slightly sweet crisp notes of two-row pale and honey malts. Cheers! Note - LCBO beer called Samuel Adams Spring Lager is the same product as this

A good, flavorful lager. Some honey sweetness in this beer with some modest citrusy hops, also. It’s not very complex, but it’s very balanced and highly enjoyable. This is another solid lager in the Samuel Adams canon.

Holtguy (167) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Crisp, bright beer with some piney, floral aroma. Flavor follows this. Quite good for a beer I wasn’t too enthusiastic about before trying. Good spring/summer beer.

Best by June, 2012 Pours a hazy golden amber with a finger of white foam that falls to a quilt of the same. Nice frosty lace. Smells of grain, hay, some corn. Not getting the citrus everybody seems to be raving about. The flavor is sweet with grain and grass with a little sweetened lemon zest, and some earthy yeast. Mouthfeel is the best aspect of the beer, slightly heavy with moderate carb combines to a velvety, unobtrusive body. Above average, but not that great. Serving type: bottle 02-09-2012

rauchbier (3808) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle (Spring Lager) from Rhythm & Booze, Barton upon Humber. Hazy gold, fluffy tight and lasting white head and gentle condition. Slightly yeasty nose with a touch of spicy hop resins, quite sweet in the mouth with some banana fruitiness, a tingle of bitterness and a pronounced yeastiness, finish is again yeast heavy and sweet with some muted lingering hop resin

merc7186 (2953) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2013
A: Mildly Hazy Golden Straw Hue, Passes Lots of Light, Mild White Head, Very Minimal Lacing S: Mild Citrus, Mild Malts T: Malty, Mild Oranges, Mild Honey M: Mediocre Carbonation, Light Bodied, Mildly Sweet, Somewhat Watery Overall, an obvious attempt to appease that masses as it is a light lager with not much going on. I miss the Noble Pils...this beer was average.

On tap at Red Robin. A Sam Adams that I would pick over a lot of their other stuff. Clean taste. Just not much of it.

ROGUE (2200) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 2, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a half inch of white head. Smell is tangerine, grass, clove, and a touch of honey. Taste follows nose with a big zest of pine and lemon in the finish. Light body with moderate carbonation.
