Samuel Adams Alpine Spring

February 5, 2012

Overall Grade:B
Taste:B
Drinkability:A
Aroma:B

Light and drinkable.

Alpine Spring is a good middle ground for beer drinkers who don't like heavy craft brews but are over well-advertised, beer-flavored water. The flavor is relatively subtile. It opens with a bit of citrus and floral taste before calming down at mid-taste and finishing crisp and clean. Easy to drink, it is hardly bitter and largely masks its 5.5% ABV.

Sweet lager aroma. You can smell the citrus in it.

Alpine Springs is good for its class, but I prefer more flavorful beers. If you're looking for something you can drink three or more of in one sitting that has solid flavor, it's a good option.
