Style | ABV
Kellerbier / Zwickelbier |  5.50% ABV

Availability: Spring

Notes/Commercial Description:
Borne of our brewers’ many trips to Germany, Alpine Spring features a unique blend of lager attributes: the balanced maltiness and hoppiness of a Helles, the smoothness and slightly higher alcohol of a traditional spring bock, and the unfiltered appearance of a Kellerbier. The beer is brewed with Noble Tettnang hops to add a unique, bright orange-citrusy aroma and flavor.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

1 Pint 6 oz. fancy brown bottle. Freshness date etched on the label.
Served in a SA Perfect Pint glass.
Pours a hazy amber honey color with a 1" off-white head along with some patchy trailing lace.
A smell grassy malt smell carries mild lemony citrus and some herbal aromas. A late smell of boiled grain inches forward but remains in the distant background.
The malt is a bit sugary sweet. It's tempered somewhat by citrus notes and a slight metallic tang. The herbal taste rolls in as it warms.
A spritzy effervescence fades quickly, so if you enjoy a little bubbly to your beer, act quickly.
I swear, this reminds me A LOT, of the old Miller Highlife of the 70's, sans the cooked corn taste.
I hope this isn't the replacement for SA's Nobel Pils. That would be sad...
