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

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.

3fourths (8701) - 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 (4879) - 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

unclemike (2613) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JAN 26, 2012
Pours a hazy yellow gold with an asserive full white head that lingers. Aroma is bread dough with a hint of citrus hops. Rich sweet pale malt and bisquit taste with just enough hoppiness to balance it out. Absolutely refreshing

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - JAN 26, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2012 12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy brass color with a small white head that soon dissipates to a film. The aroma is medium in strength with sweet barley, white fruits and spicy-peppery hops. The taste is similar to the nose with biscuit, bread, subtle citrus, white pepper and a touch of honey. The palate is silky smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering aftertaste of lemons and pepper. Overall: This is really good, perhaps my favorite Lager to date.
