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

Decided to give this a shot, since I love the noble pils - hazy gold with a quickly diminishing head - nose is quite sweet, honey, apple, pear - some light mineral notes underneath, as well as lightly peppery hops - soft carbonation, creamy texture - flavor is very sweet up front, like apples and honey - a moderqt acidity cuts through the middle and lasts through the finish - some chalkiness and a moderately bitter, grassy hop note on the end - a bit of lemon - messy, but not completely unenjoyable.

Had this one at dinner the other night. Served in a pint glass. A - Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a nice one finger tall white head leaving small webs of lace down the glass. S - Smells of pale malts, citric fruit, grassy hops and some light breadiness. T - Starts off with a bit of chewy grain quickly giving way to hints of grassy hops and juicy citric fruit. Finish is a mix of chewiness and dulled hop bitterness, not lingering for very long. M - Light body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Juicy, chewy feel that lingers on the pallet for a short period of time. O - Not too bad. It really helped to knock down some of the heat from my wings. I would have no problem drinking a few of these once warmer weather comes around.

Not a big Sammy fan to begin with, can taste a good effort here though...but not my thing. Is like a flowery wheat.

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.
