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

Cloudy light golden pour, smallish head. A faint floral aroma is noted and it makes me happy. The flavor is pretty much standard lager fare. The floral hopping saves it from utter boredom, but it still wasn’t awe inspiring. Just okay.

Pale, opaque yellow appearance with thin head. Medium bodied creamy palate with light carbonation. Gentle citrus taste with warm malty finish. Worth trying again.

Pours a golden dark-ish yellow. Aroma is mown grass and spicy peppery notes. Nice hop showcase.Flavor is a bit of a letdown. Drinkable but not memorable.

puboflyons (2073) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 30, 2012
On tap in a frosted glass. The pour is a hazy light to medium amber with a big foamy head. Aroma of grain and malts but subtle. Medium to full body. The taste is a but grainy with good clean, crip hop ending. Almost dry.

~Spicy hop aroma with slight citrus, sweet crisp honey sweetness. Beautifully balanced! ~Pours a hazy yellowish gold with lasting fluffy white head. ~Sweet honey biscuity malts with light spicy hops that are full of citrus an floral notes. ~Medium light bodied, med CO2, refreshing and crisp, slight lingering bittersweet finish. ~I hope I can get a 24 pack of this when it starts getting warmer. Excellent brew for outdoor activities.

From the tap poured a golden color with a fair amount of head. Grassy malty flavor with a quick finish.

GT2 (8281) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 30, 2012
355mL. Pours like a witbier with lots of chill haze and unfiltered character. Soapy white head akin to Blue Moon. Nose is actually quite noble hoppy- lemon and butternut squash with some white sugar. Witbier yeast phenols- cloves, lemon. Taste is sharp orange and lemon section, soapy, sugary, good noble hop balance. Pretty nice upgrade from Blue Moon. Noble hoppiness is quite nice.

Tap. Could be the lines, or this has some major flaws. Extremely sweet. Cooked veggies. Hops in finish help to clean palate. Will revisit from bottle soon.

glennmastrange (2226) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2012
Tap. Light to moderate malt and hop aromas of grain, cereal, herbs, lemon and flowers, faint earth for the yeast, with a fresh fruity note in the background. Is is small, creamy, white with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy golden amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is on the lightler side of medium, watery with some slicknes perhaps, and has a soft carbonation. One of the best Premium Lagers I’ve had in a while, this was tasty, very easy to drink and refreshing.
