Samuel Adams Alpine Spring is yet another addition to the breweryís Small Batch series. For this entry, Sammy & Co used the more traditional labeling. Starting in late October, youíll see the first of the Small Batch hit the market Ė Tasman Red, Third Voyage, Griffinís 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

$8,99 at Vine and Bine, Enjoy before June. Slightly hazy golden with a one finger white head, creamy with pretty decent retention. Bready sweet malts up front in the nose, lager yeast, and then some light citrus herbal notes in the back end. Nice yeasty lager notes in the flavor, followed by the malts. Finishes with a little bit of almond, semi-dry, bitterness at a 2, lightly earthy. Low creamy carbonation with a medium body. Pretty balanced, pretty mild on the hop front. I enjoyed this, and could drink loads of this the next couple months. Which reminds me--canít wait for Noble Pils to come out!

Very much in the Zwickelbier style. Pours a hazy orange-gold, with a nice fluffy-rocky tan head. Marvelous nose of citrus and fresh baked bread. Delicious malt, honey, and citrus flavors blending in together wonderfully on the palate. Itís not often I say this, but this may be one of the 10 best beers I have ever come across, and believe me, Iíve tried a few! If you like the Zwickelbier style, you have to try this one, as it is a very fine effort from the Boston Beer Company!

Pours bright golden, lightly cloudy with a thin wispy off-white head. Notes of citrus, biscuit, pale malt, mint, chamomile, and lemongrass. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Tastes like a mix of their summer ale and noble pils.

very lightly hazy golden color w small white head no retention next to no lacing... dry aroma, grassy hop flavor follows suit, medium thin body, not nearly as good as the noble pils....

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2012 Bottle from Samís Quik Shop in Durham. Pours a orange-hued golden, hazy and with a gauzy white head and nice lacing. Nose and taste shows sourdough bread, lemon and orange, crisp grassy hops, and some floral notes. Palate is rich and full. Will definitely pick up a sixer or so of this one.

12oz bottle. certainly not the same packaging as the other "small batch" beers. this came in a 6pack. a lightly hazy gold color with a large, fluffy white head. look very similar to noble pils. tangy, limey noble hops with corny, syrupy lager malts in aroma. flavor is big and malty. creamed corn and buttered biscuit flavors with those bright nobles in the finish. creamy and almost medium bodied much to my surprise. while not quite as refreshing as noble pils, this beer has itís place and i imagine it will be quite high.

Pours a slightly cloudy golden/amber color with a big white head. Aroma is of malts, hops, citrus, moss, slight pine, and some floral notes. Flavor is a little more on the wheat side. Has a slight sweetness after swallowing. I can pick up malts, hops, wheat, barley, floral, and a little lemon peel. Leaves a bitter sweet finish. Itís actually kind of refreshing.

I looked at this beer as a Golden Cream Ale. Very creamy, smooth, and sweet. I get a lot of honey flavor and a nice addition of citrusy flavor from the hops.

1/10/12. 12oz bottle thanks to PorterPounder! Slightly hazy orange pour with a nice barely off-white head that cuts in half but laces quite a bit. Relatively nice aroma of pale malts, hay, grass, and light cream. Even nicer flavor with pale malts, hay, grass, cream, and a very nice citrus bite as well. I kinda dig it!

12oz bottle pour. hazy light orange with a medium white head. retention, no. lacing, ok. aroma is blah; apricot and orange, earthy hops and grain. taste follows suit. lackluster.. easy to drink and ok but it doesnít leave you wanting another at the end of your glass. your uncle will probably think this is a great beer.
