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

spilledpint (346) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 5, 2012
12 oz. bottle from Food Lion. Ar: Aroma is mild but inviting. Nice citrus, floral honey notes. Ap: Pours a hazy blonde copper with a frothy 1" head that sticks around and leaves nice lace. T: Mild sweet honey malt flavor. Nice citrusy hop finish. P: Medium-thin body, moderate carbonation. O: Disappointed Noble Pils hadn’t been released yet, this is another very satisfying spring Lager from BBC.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - FEB 5, 2012
12 oz bottle. Hazy golden yellow with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon, herbal tea and some light malty scent. Flavor is doughy malt with a light citrus hop bitterness. Light body with average carbonation and a clean, crisp finish. This is a nice easy drinking beer, not watered down but still light.

OzarkElmo (300) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Pours a hazy yellow with sizable white head. Crisp, light and somewhat flavorful. A decent offering from the Boston Beer Company, just nothing that catches my attention and urges me to purchase again.

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 (3506) - 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 (870) - 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 (1149) - 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]
