Big can from the State store in Charlottetown.
I tried this for the first time about twenty years ago and at the time thought it was a great beer, so when I saw it today I couldn't pass it up. Pours a brilliantly clear apple juice color with a good sized bubbly white head that lasts forever. Sweet bready pilsner and faint spicy floral hops. Flavor follows the aroma quite well. Drinkable but not nearly as spectacular as my memories.

A: The beer is crystal clear deep yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that quickly died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of apples and corn adjuncts are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the corn is a bit stronger and the adjunct malts contribute a slight amount of sweetness.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied and clean on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to be a bit heavier in body and tastier compared to other beers in the style.

Alpine pours a clear yellow with a soapy head that fades quite quickly. Its clean looking like the avg. lager.

Smells like corn, malt, and quite hoppy, with a touch of lemon in the background.

You get that corn taste straight up, followed by the malt, lemon, and a mild hop bite in the end.

Light body, High end of medium carb. Crisp and easy going.

Everyone I know drinks the stuff here in New Brunswick. It was also my go to beer a year or two ago. Its a simple crisp lager with a tiny hint of lemon and mild hoppy burn finish.

Alpine Lager is a very popular beer to those from the maritimes.
It has been part of many people's teenage years and somewhat represents rebellion as PW Oland went against his father's will to brew this refreshing lager.

This award winning lager is a best seller in New-Brunswick, it's hometown.
It is the preferred choice of maritimers since 1937.

5% ABV, slow aged, medium body with a fleeting hop bitterness and slightly sweet malty aroma.

New Brunswick's favourite beer. Everyone grew up with someone in their family drinking this lager brewed by Moosehead Breweries. This beer was the social lubricant in many family outings.

Very drinkable lager. Best served ice cold, directly out of the bottle while doing something with your hands (i.e. painting, fixing your car, bbqing, etc.).

You gotta live here to get it!

12oz can -> american pint
Received as a gift at Super Ball 9 from our Canadian neighbors.

Pours a remarkably clear golden yellow with big thin wispy white head that disappears faster than i can type. Leaving only faintest milky way of suds. Scarce blotches of thin lace. Carbonation is constant and robust.

Nose: Faint grain, corn

Thin crisp mouth. Starts off with twinges of sweet pale malt, that almost syrupy light taste last throughout. A small hop bit tries to balance with sweet, but doesn't quite get there. Light and easy to drink, without being offensive. A big plus in this category.

I reviewed this beer based on its style, not on it compared to an IPA. Most reviews on this site for this beer are biased, wish more people would review a beer for what its trying to be, not what they prefer. Appearance for this beer should be off the charts, it really LOOKS great. End rant.
