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: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

A- Pours a really hazy light goldish amber. Not too much for a a head. A thin layer of white bubbles and very little spotty lacing.

S- A fairly strong bready cracker smell here. Light hops, grassy, and lemon.

T- Taste is like Noble Pils and White Ale were mixed together. A very strong cracker bready taste with a grassy hop bite.

M- Light in body and crisp carbonation.

O- Not really digging this one at all.
