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

Pours a yellowish gold with notich head & minimal lacing. Nothing stands out aroma wise. The beer itself is smooth. Actually pretty tasty for an ale. Pretty refreshing. Nothing spectacular but a nice sessionable brew.

LilBeerDoctor (3429) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet fruits, honey, wheat malt. Flavor is a bit harsh, more bready/wheaty, with a tangy honey sweetness. Aroma is ok, but flavor is less impressive. Meh overall. Glad I didn’t pay for a 6 pack... 6/4/6/3/11 (3.0/5)

scooterbub (823) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - FEB 4, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a one inch, white head that slowly collapses. Taste is of hops, citrus, pine, malt, grass and honey. Has a similar aroma. The body is a bit thin oily. Well balanced. The finish is slightly dry and bitter. Easy to drink and quite enjoyable. Makes me look forward to spring.

Boliv (1148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle, best before June ’12. Pours hazy gold with a 2-finger creamy beige head. Aromas of yeast, sweet dough and orange, and some coriander. Orangey citrus in the flavor, with slight spice and grassy bitterness before a sweet orange finish. Alright. A step up from Blue Moon. [946]

JMerritt (1786) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Hazy oranged yellow with a medium sized white head that is mostly but not totally diminishing. Nose is dominated by sweet grains (straw and wheat), light lemon and white pepper. Lightly sweet flavor grows a bit from the start, and light, sour wet straw sneaks in at times. Finish is lightly sweet, very lightly sour. Lingering finish is of clean, husky grains as the slight sourness disappears. Rather full mouthfeel set this apart from those offerings that are lacking.

Trev (1922) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 4, 2012
They are calling it an ’outside the box’ helles apparently. Hazy orange gold pour with a medium tight white head. aroma is biscuity, light citrus fruit, grassy hop. hint of honey sweetness. flavour is very nice. Light sweet maltiness. Hop comes across more floral in the flavour. Very smooth on the palate. I actually enjoy this very much.

HighlanderOne (994) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Poured from bottle. Spice, flower and grain in aroma. Kinda cloudy gold, white lacing head. Floral flavors, along with some pepper, spice, honey and wheat. Dry, carbonated feel. Flavors blend as it warms. Not my cuppatea, but pretty good.
