COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 28, 2013
A - Pours a hazy golden orange with 1 finger of off-white head. Average lacing but very pretty patterns. S - Lemon, grain, honey, grassy hops, earthy lager yeast. T - Bright lemon and orange citrus open up the palate. Grassy hops mix with b-vitamins to create a medium bitterness. Honey grain bread is the base and flows well with the citrus. Ends with a grassy, crisp finish. M - Crisp medium body, it has some density to it, just the right amount of carbonation. Very refreshing. Good mix of clean and grainy. Good looking and went down very smooth. I will be drinking more of this for sure. Serving type: bottle 02-02-2012

An excellent spring beer. The color and flavor are a nice hybrid wheat white. This beer is very drinkable and is excellent in both the bottle and on tap.
