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

Sampled on 1/27/2012. This Premium Lager pours a slightly cloudy medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is grainy, sweet and citrusy, with a touch of earthy and floral. A medium bodied Premium Lager. The malts are fruity, grainy and sweet. The hops are herbal and floral. Good carbonation. Has that grainy, sweet and somewhat spicy lager taste, although it’s on the sweet side. Touch of pepper and orange peel at the finish. Thinking that this is more of a summer beer than a spring beer, might taste a whole lot better on a warm summer day. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

crossovert (10892) - Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2012
They try to pass this off as a traditional German lager. Well these guys should be forced to drink liters of Weihenstephaner until near death then go fucking brew a lager. This stuff is drivel, even the BMC beers rape it. These shithead brewers have created one of the worlds worst lagers. Absolutely no brewing skill exhibited.

fiercepanda (615) - Missouri, USA - JAN 27, 2012
A cloudy dark yellow beer with a small white head. The aroma is citrus and hay. The flavor is also citrus with a floral finish. Easy to drink, but uneventful.

Very creamy/milky. Not a standard Sam Adams. Dark copper. Thin white head. Low bitterness.

3fourths (9016) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 27, 2012
bottle. hazed gold. first impression is nutrisweet saccharine with floral perfume esters, cloying honey malt, moderate bitterness, medium-low acid, light body but creamy / syrupy. difficult to stomach, honestly. it’s so sweet, and consumed in overripe, sweet pear and apple esters, I could barely drink half the bottle before throwing it in a trash bin.

jkwood04 (5213) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 27, 2012
12oz bottle. Aroma of light malts, a little caramel, some citrus, plus light hops. Flavor about the same, with nothing sticking out. Average texture. A decent beer.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JAN 26, 2012
Bottle from Ty (of course). Poured hazy orange with a small white head that faded within mere moments. Slightly musty smelling with slight notes of citrus (orange/lemon) and a little herbal. Tastes strongly of floral and citrus hops with some hay and light honey. Decent beer, thought I was going to hate it at first but it grew on me throughout the glass.

Pours a unclear pale gold and a small bubbly white head. Nose is sweet malt and candy corn. Flavor is slight sweet creamed corn and a tinge of floral bitterness. Not terrible.

robiannelli (591) - West Deptford, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2012
12oz bottle pours a light amber with a white head. Aromas of citrus mostly lemon and also a very light pine. Flavor is balanced some lemon and grapefruit maybe orange and spruce countered with sweet malts carmel toffee notes. Body is light and crisp finish is very slightly astrigent. Drinks like a pale finishes like a lager
