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.

Pours out yellow-orange with a nice white fluffy head that sticks around with good lacing. Nice looking beer.
Lemon zest and tart citrus aromas prevail.
Nice light citrus hop up front, bit of a sweet malty body to it. Smooth mouthfeel with a crisp aftertaste. Overall, an excellent beer, perfect for a day riding around on the lawnmower.
