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

Theydon_Bois (20628) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle, at home - 10/05/13, labelled as ’Spring Lager’, from BOE. Hazed golden amber, small white head that clears to a film but retains a presence. Nose carries Noble hop notes, grass, light caramel, lemon sherbet. Taste coprises pale malts, light caramel, touch of citrus fruit, bitter orange notes, grain, light sugars. Medium bodied, fine carbonation - light sprtiz - suits the style and keeps it crisp and refreshing. Ok lager - not something I’d seek out again but way better than macro crap!

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.
