Samuel Adams Alpine Spring

samuel_adams_alpine_spring

Alpine Springs is an unfiltered lager that reminds me a bit of a saison with less yeast.  The malt backbone is mellower than in a typical lager, making this more like a nice wheat ale.  It’s also quite a bit heavier in body than a typical lager.  It has a light citrus scent, and is bready in the middle with some faint orange as well.   There’s no hop bite at all, so folks who don’t like bitter beers might want to try it out.  This is a very pleasant summer beer.

I give it a 3.7 out of 5.
