Samuel Adams Alpine SpringSamuel Adams Alpine Spring

Brewed by:
Boston Beer Company (Samuel Adams)
Massachusetts, United States

Style: Kellerbier / Zwickelbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

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: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: hazy golden/orange; medium sized white frothy head, long lasting, good lacing

Smell: malty; bready; slight citrus (orange); smells a bit like a subdued Radler, even though it's more orange than lemon; light honey, too

Taste: Creamy sweet malt on start; citrusy/bready in the mid; finishes slightly dry and citrusy with a bit of honey; seems to linger with a slight adjunct flavor

Mouthfeel: A little creamier than I expected given the name; but I like creamier beers

Remarks: Not bad overall and probably a good session beer for cooler months
