Samuel Adams Alpine Spring

Today I'm drinking Samuel Adams Alpine Spring brewed by The Boston Beer Company in Boston, Cincinnati or Breinigsville, Pennsylvania. This is a new beer for Sam. I just grabbed a single though I saw it in 6 and 12 packs. The label notes this as "A Bright Citrusy Unfiltered Lager".  Again these guys are back to destroying an otherwise beautiful mountain lake scene with their gigantic branding letters and banners. You don't need to SCREAM at me that this is SAMUEL ADAMS ALPINE SPRING!  Give your label artists their day in the sun. Enjoy Before June.

Nice citrus lemon and orange aroma. I actually wrote "bright" before I read where the label said that at least a few times. Sam should hire me. The aroma reminds me of a soap scent, in a good way.

Lemony flavors in the beginning, calmly bitter yet on top of sweet candied rind. Tough to describe. Sweet orange. Grassy with some spicy nibbles and a little zing. There is a background doughy flavor that's a little distracting and takes away from the refreshment. Carbonation is perfect. An enjoyable beer. Check it out.

It's their new spring seasonal. The previous spring beer, the Noble Pils, is now a year round beer.

Looking forward to trying this new brew.

It's not a bad beer. And I'm glad they decided to make Noble Pils a year round. I think it's really great.

I drank two of these last night and found them quite enjoyable. I always enjoy reading your reviews. Cheers!

Yes, very nice beer. Not a favorite, not even from Sam Adams but good. Thanks for the compliment. What do you think about the label art commentary injection on a more-than-regular basis?
