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

TheBeerGod (5045) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 25, 2012
Bottle. Hazy gold with a short, foamy white head. Aroma is hoppy with light citrus, grains and malt notes. Taste is malty and somewhat sweet with big grain notes, multigrain bread, light lemony zest and local hops. Body is medium and has a smooth, bubbly carbonation. End with more citrus notes, wheat, bread, floral hops, sweet malt and a touch of caramel.

PhillyBeer2112 (2496) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2012
Not so hot. I like the soft bready malt, soft carbonation. But there’s a minerally presence that accentuates the bitterness of the hop, clashing at the finish leaving a long lasting bitterness that is not well integrated into the malts which are otherwise very dry. Golden color, medium head and spotty lacing. Nose has a caramel-butter note that is not very good.

Good light spring beer. Good to bring to a party. I’d have it again. Orange in color, crisp to the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours hazy golden copper with a lasting head. Aroma of citrus and wheat. Flavor is well balanced between the citrus flavored hops and the biscuit malts. Quite tasty and satisfying. Would pair well with nice yeasty bread and sharp cheese.

Draft at El Charro in Tucson. Pretty full bodied and flavored lager; there are definitely the lager notes here. I really liked the hop balance as well. Nice and refreshing.

Pours a slightly hazy gold with a thick head of white foam on top. Nose is wheat, citrus and coriander. Very creamy on the palate, this flavorful beer imparts a lightly roasted grain flavor along with a hint of citrus that is lightly hopped. Pairs well with light cheeses and crackers.
