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

Bottle. Pours golden amber with a haze and white head. Aroma of lager esters and spice. Lighter side of medium bodied with average carbonation. Nice pale and honey malt backdrop with a hint of biscuit, countered by citrusy note and tamed spicy hops. Good but, lacks some oompf

rougeau13 (2512) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Hazy orange-golden with a white head and some nice lacing. Aroma of bread, citrus, and flowers. Taste is slightly sweet honey and bready malt with mild citrus flavors and bitterness. Medium bodied, lightly carbonated, refreshing, short finishing. Nice spring beer.

wxman (1724) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 13, 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. A warm weather session beer!

$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--can’t 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. It’s not often I say this, but this may be one of the 10 best beers I have ever come across, and believe me, I’ve 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!

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 11, 2012
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....

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 11, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2012 Bottle from Sam’s 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 it’s place and i imagine it will be quite high.
