Neighbors have family up in Prince Edward Island and pick this up when they visit up that way. Had never heard of it, and was very pleasantly surprised just how good this was. Pours light golden with a fast-fading cap of white. Aromas are mild bready notes. Flavor brings more doughy bread and it's got a very smooth mouthfeel. Good stuff!

Clear gold with a good head for style. Standard sweet corn nose. Light clean malt body with no off-flavours. Strong carbonation. OK for style.

Pours a big filthy head from the chugging can, soapy lacing, decent retention, crystal clear pale color

Nose not too bad, bit of a macro lager corn adjunct unfermentable thing, crisp lager, straw, grass, mild fruity lager notes

Taste less desirable, bit of a skunky unhappy lager with the adjunct corn unfermentables, cooked corn almost DMS like, grassy hay and mild hop note, very watery and some minerality, little crisp lager finish

Mouth is lighter bod thin watery, fluffy carb

Overall meh, not too bad but not very enjoyable

The beer pours a translucent pale gold colour with a snow white foamy cap and a little bit of effervescence. The aroma is cereal malt, grass, and weak floral hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is grainy malt, with some soapy bitter notes. The lack of phenolic and metallic notes puts this above most Canadian pale lagers.

Pours perfectly see-through with a loose head on top. Grainy and biscuity on the nose. The taste adds slight bitterness and metallic notes. High level of effervescence. Average at best

As someone who was born and raised in New Brunswick (where this beer is brewed), I grew up drinking this stuff and everyone around me who drank be also drank Alpine. Ice cold Alpine on a hot day by the lake is something I've always enjoyed. Enough with my mumbling and onto the review:

Serving Type: 355 mL Can

A- Pours a clear Golden colour common among Adjunct Lagers. Soapy white thin head that dissipates quickly. No lacing.

S- Corn upfront followed by a bright maltiness and slight hop bitterness to finish. Well rounded aroma.

T- Pale Malt upfront followed by a sweet corniness. A decent hops flavour to finish off.

M- Light Body and High Carbonation. How an AAL is meant to be.

O- For a cheap (at least in NB) AAL, this beer has more to offer than a BMC lager (In my opinion). A more balanced aroma and flavour that goes down smooth. When comparing Alpine to any style and price point, Alpine isn't that great but if you treat it like a cheap Lager and not a world-class Craft beer, it will do you just fine. I don't drink Alpine often but when I do, it's always a treat.
