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

From the 12oz bottle. Pours a hazy light gold pour with a thick white head. Floral, citrus hop aroma. Clean crisp malt body followed by a nice citrus hop bitterness. Such a clean and easing drinking lager with wonderful hop notes, a real winner.

Pours bright and hazy. Nose is strong on citrus. Taste is bready, fruity and some yeast. Reminds me of a wit. Easy drinking but gets a bit boring after a while. Overall a good beer for a hot day.

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.

Ughsmash (7510) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Draft. Poured Neat-clear medium golden with a sticky white head and lots of rising carbonation. The aroma picked up fresh, sweet bready malts accented by grassy and citrus hoppage.. a pinch of honey on the back. The flavor found bready and biscuity malts at the core plus the pinch of honey.. lightly tart and bitter on the edges, with grassy notes leading.. lots of residual sugars on the finish. Lighter-bodied with high, filling carbonation on the palate.. decent feel and flow.. aiight stuff, and very drinkable.

quite a smooth beer, it has a nice malty presence with a soft floral taste and a nice little bite at the end. the hops are not overpowering but they do have a mellow quality. a winner.

I really enjoyed this one. Taste is summer fruit, bread and hay. Solid, easy drinking beer.

VRBJG (159) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 31, 2012
Pours golden orange with a nice white frothy head. Smells slightly cirtus. Yeast flavor take the spotlight. This is just an average brew.

3.3
Goodgrief (2062) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JAN 31, 2012
Cloudy light golden pour, smallish head. A faint floral aroma is noted and it makes me happy. The flavor is pretty much standard lager fare. The floral hopping saves it from utter boredom, but it still wasn’t awe inspiring. Just okay.

IndieMetal (1) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 30, 2012 does not count
Pale, opaque yellow appearance with thin head. Medium bodied creamy palate with light carbonation. Gentle citrus taste with warm malty finish. Worth trying again.

3.2
ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JAN 30, 2012
Pours a golden dark-ish yellow. Aroma is mown grass and spicy peppery notes. Nice hop showcase.Flavor is a bit of a letdown. Drinkable but not memorable.
