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

Draft - Pours a hazy golden amber in color with a medium frothy white head that stuck around to produce some decent lacing on the Samuel Adams glass. Aroma is of citrus, caramel malts and bready yeasts. Flavor is slightly sweet with citrus and bread dough... some estery light fruits... stone fruit primarily. Finish is lingering and mildly bitter with slight sweetness at the very end. Better than I expected...

Harris Teeter, DC sixer ($8): Pours a hazy orange/yellow color with a white head. Aroma is citrus and bread. Taste is nice and crisp, with a solid, but mellow hop presence. Minimal sweetness, and an excellent balance. This was better than I had hoped, and it makes for a great session.

Had 2 pints on draft at Lone Star....$4.00 a pint special. Looks good in the glass, cloudy golden orange color. Fluffy white head and a good amount of lacing. Smell of citrus and malts which transfers to the taste. Not a bad beer. Would drink again.

While the aroma could be brighter with fruit, the flavor really delivers with a solid wheat/caramel base infused with fresh orange, grapefruit and apricot notes. Think fresh nectar mixed with a half pale ale half hefe. Medium bodied with a long lingering juicy finish.

Poured a pretty, hazy yellow with a pure white head. Very crisp, and very refreshing.

One of my new favorite cheap beers. It’s not filtered, and is better than bud for getting wasted. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slight note of some tasty hops and citrus...but then that’s about it. Thin, pretty ugly, and boring. On the flip side, it is well made and carbonated. Just boring overall

shrubber85 (10243) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 10, 2012
Bottle. Orange malt and light pine aroma. Hazy golden yellow color with large head. Sweet orange and lightly bitter grapfruit peel flavor. Nice creamy malt finish. Wasn’t too impressed until the malt hit me - really like this one.

I actually kind of like this. Hoppy, almost lemony. Refreshing, and the unfilteredness gives it a creaminess. Very reminiscent of Prima Pils. I still refuse to buy $9 a six pack for sam adams, though.

Copper-blonde pour into thick off white head that slowly dissipates into melting lacing as carbonated bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass into a pool of foam . Aroma of spruce, lemony citrus, and malty biscuit. Initial flavor of doughy biscuit and sweet citrus that slowly fades into a bitter hoppy finish.
