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: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A- a slightly cloudy goldenrod with orange hints. Nice creamy egg shell colored head. A little bit of lacing.

S- Lemon zest, noble hops, and some pilsner malts.

T- Some lemon zest, a restrained noble hop presence, some wheat malt, that transitions into a strangely interesting and quite pleasant grainy sweetness. Lemon zest lingers

M- spot on carbonation, and the wheat malts lend a certain creaminess to the brew.

O- I didn't know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. I like this quite a bit more than Sam Summer Ale, likely due to the more pilsner like qualities. Certainly glad this will be around even in non-craft beer friendly establishments through the spring.

Serving type: on-tap
