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

Oakes (14938) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2012
Cloudy dark straw with a thick, slightly rocky head. The aroma is yeasty and fresh with light bready pale malts. The taste is lime-accented with slightly doughy, bready notes. Not bad. Could probably use more dryness to pull the yeast and malt elements together more.

bhensonb (13733) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle from a Save-Mart. Pours hazy gold with a 3 finger foamy near-white head. Aroma is floral and citrus. Med body. Flavor is lightly bready with some citrus. Drinks pretty well, but gets a bit too bready in the finish. Then suddenly there’s a strong citrus hit. All in all it’s a decent light lager.
