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

Pretty good lager. The unfiltered aspect added a lot. Nice German malt aroma with a little floral hops. Nice cloudy golden color with a white foamy head. Medium weight palate, which had substance. Nice blend of flavors that were pilsner-like with grains and a little bitterness on the finish. Some bready character as well. Great for introducing someone to craft beer.

Pours a nice amber color. Nice sweet malt nose with a hint of hops. Taste is caramel, with mild hops and a touch of fruit.

Review from notes taken in 2013. The pour is cloudy with an outstanding head volume, lacing and retention. The nose is a bit weak, but has nice hints of lemon and light hops over a rather pronounced biscuit. Light medium body with a smooth texture. Normal carbonation level with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice somewhat prickly finish. The flavor profile is very good. Quite reasonable in terms of intensity, complexity and balance. Slightly tart and lemon notes begin then flow to a mild earthy and herbal bitterness. The middle brings a nice burst of biscuit to balance. The finish is a bit crisp and semi-dry.

"similar to, but different than the noble pils. tettnanger hops in here? the aroma and flavor are leaning towards being stright up fruity with a little less crispness and hop bite than the pils, but it is still quite good for a lager. "

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Pours from 12 oz bottle a slightly cloudy golden/amber color with a big white head. Aroma is of malts, hops, citrus, moss, slight pine, and some floral notes. The flavours are definitely on the sweet side, with honey, lemon and light-flavored malts, with some dry and semi-spicy hops show through a little bit in the finish and in the aftertaste. Decent, go to lager I guess.
