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

Poured a hazy golden orange color with a huge airy-frothy shape holding head. Beautiful lacing. Aroma is super bright, smells like a warm weather brew. Smell is lightly floral and grassy with lemon peel. The taste is pleasant enough with some floral hops and citrus but overall i'd say this is too sweet! Overall flavor could be more interesting. This is a munich helles lager that pretty much tastes like a blue moon. So "helles" means bright huh? Well this is bright. Too bright. The malt aspect is there just kinda flavorless and sweet. Feel is a tad thin.This might be refreshing if it were summer. Its definitely not summer. Not bad tho.
