BEER INFO

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

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.

This is a very enjoyable beer! In spite of its cloudy appearance, there is a refreshing citrus element to Alpine Spring that hits the mark. The mixture of flavours and styles is extremely pleasant - I'm glad I had the opportunity to try this one out!

One of the best beers I have ever had. Seasonal release that hasn't returned since Spring 2013. I miss it dearly.
