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.

Hmmm a leftover bottle from the superbowl party. Mine now.

Poured into a mug. Pours a pale golden color with a decent finger white heading. Good lacing throughout the tasting.

Very citrusy nose, alot of orange peel and decent lemon zest towards the finish. This does make me feel like spring is in the air.

That same orangey-lemony flavor with a superb backing of honey malt which comes in full force. Subtle touches of spice and dough in the finish.

Light bodied,excellent carbonation. Excellent balance,very crisp finish.

I am not to familiar with the Keller style but this seems spot on to me. Great spring brew from Samuel Adams.
