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

brokensail (16670) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Pours a cloudy golden color with a finger of white foam. A touch of spicy hops with just a hint of citrus. Decently floral as well. A lot of yeast contributions, notably pepper and maybe even a hint of banana. Bready malt makes up the rest. The flavor is a bit bland. It has a strange lemony note on the finish as well. Some notes of floral and spicy hops and maybe some bread/malt flavors.

bhensonb (15843) - 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.

crossovert (14006) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2012
They try to pass this off as a traditional German lager. Well these guys should be forced to drink liters of Weihenstephaner until near death then go fucking brew a lager. This stuff is drivel, even the BMC beers rape it. These shithead brewers have created one of the worlds worst lagers. Absolutely no brewing skill exhibited.

3.1
Dogbrick (13986) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Sample at the Columbus Winter Beerfest on 01/14/2012: This brew is a hazy yellow color with a medium thin white head that evaporates steadily. Spotty lacing. Aroma of citrus and malt. Light body with a sweet citrus character and notes of herbs and malt. The finish is fruity with a sweet aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.
