Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BDIMike on 12-22-2011

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

Appearance: Hazy, light copper color with one finger of head that fades to a ring with little lacing.

Aroma: Lots of floral and citrus hop notes over a light, grassy malt aroma. The most prominent aroma is orange rind, but there's some nice, fresh hop notes mixing in as well.

Taste: Light, sweet malt and a lot of citrus tartness and crisp bitterness up front, fading into some breadyness and then a fairly fast, crisp finish that is slightly astringent.

The Rest: A very strong offering from SA. More body than I was expecting and great balance that kept me wanting more of this one. Very solid.
