Pours an awesome-looking unfiltered lager. The beer has a murky, dark golden colored beer. There is a small amount of carbonation that creates a nice, thick white head. The head has awesome retention and stays throughout the entire beer.
Smell is very clean. A bit of citrusy, flowery hop smell, but it balances very well with a toned down honey malt.
Taste is very nice. A well-balanced sip. The beginning of the sip is a nice floral hop taste. The end of the sip is very clean with a crisp, honey malt taste.
Mouthfeel is great for a lager. This beer has a crisp, refreshing bite, but it has a bit more body to it than a regular lager.
Drinkability is awesome on Alpine Spring. It is a great beer for springtime. It has some really good tastes and flavors to it, but they all balance out really well. The balance makes this an awesome session beer. Sam really did well with this new seasonal..
