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

Shared with Styrkzone on Facebook Chat. Poured gold with a white head. MEdium body. Very smooth clean lager mouth feel. Flavor shows floral hops and there is bitterness in the finish. I love flavorful lagers.

Strykzone (4497) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Hayduke. Some white haze in the dark golden beer. A fluffy white head. I smell some floral notes and those are tasted. Pale malts are also smelled. I taste those along with honey. The hops bring some moderate bitterness and some sourness. This is a pretty good beer but is not outstanding. Had the IPL last night and that was a hard act to follow.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - MAY 15, 2013
The nose is of grass, lemon, & white pepper. The taste starts with an herbal bitterness against some clean, almost honey-sweet malt. Light sulfur notes round out the finish. Quite a nice Zwiklebier.

Theydon_Bois (7005) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle, at home - 10/05/13, labelled as ’Spring Lager’, from BOE. Hazed golden amber, small white head that clears to a film but retains a presence. Nose carries Noble hop notes, grass, light caramel, lemon sherbet. Taste coprises pale malts, light caramel, touch of citrus fruit, bitter orange notes, grain, light sugars. Medium bodied, fine carbonation - light sprtiz - suits the style and keeps it crisp and refreshing. Ok lager - not something I’d seek out again but way better than macro crap!

marcus (6022) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours dirty blonde with a rich off-white head and a bready aroma. There is a skunky light malt flavor with a mildly bitter finish.

monk191 (728) - California, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Not bad! Pours a decent cloudy orange. Smells herby, like grass. Taste is similar, floral, with a decent amount of honey. Like a fresh meadow! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JFGrind (1811) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Light bodied golden hazy beer with citrus flavor and floral aroma. Drinkable decent, but maybe too much of an easy drinker for me. Like my Spring beers , German style Bocks and not an early version of a Summer beer.
