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

UPDATED: APR 20, 2012 12oz bottle from supermarket. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is sweet malt, lemon and citrus all over, yeast, and goodness. Flavor is similar with a fair amount of goodness. Lemon and sweet malt dominate with some yeast spritzed in as well. A nice lager, two words I did not expect to put together. This beer keeps getting better; I will be sorry when it’s gone!

Bottle from craft outlet. Eh it’s ok. It’s a bit like summer ale, but milder. A bit of honey, hop, greass and lemon. Some bread and spice. Refreshing.

Hazy light orange with a medium sized white head. Good retention and lace. Lemon citrusy aroma with a hint of wheat. Good balance of flavors. More lemon and light malt. Light+ sweet, light bitter. Light body, thin texture, crisp finish. Nice beer.

jcr (2208) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy, light golden body. Fizzy white head. Aroma of toasted grain, citrus, lemon and canned vegetables. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Light lemon tartness. Medium body, chalky texture, moderate to lively carbonation. Husky grain and citrus taste. Unclean body, not what one thinks of as an alpine spring. No crispness, just notes of lemon tartness. On the other hand, this is more flavorful and most premium lagers. The good news is that the former spring seasonal, Noble Pils, is going to be brewed year round. The bad news is that Alpine Spring will now be on every seasonal tap instead of Noble Pils.

The color, aroma and pour are what really make this beer. The flavor doesnt really match up unfortunately. A nice expected beer from Sam Adams but nothing too special.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Cloudy, orange, with a decent head. Some malt aroma. The taste is a good bit of malt but with tastes of light fruit. The finish is dry, clean, and reminds me a bit of flowers. I’m fairly about SA brews, but this one doesn’t really do it for me.

ContemplateBeer (1540) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Aroma of caramel and honey with noble and citrus hops. Appearance is cloudy gold with foamy white head. Flavor matches the nose with a slightly peppery finish. Palate is bubbly. Very well made lager.
