Brewed especially for the season, this bright citrusy unfiltered lager is both satisfying and refreshing. It’s the perfect transition from winter’s heavier brews to the lighter beers of summer. 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 Tettnang Noble hops to add a unique, bright orange-citrusy aroma and flavor.

Pouring a dull yellow, notes of citrus and almond waft off the very thick head. On the tongue, very smooth, with an initial creamy sweetness courtesy of the honey malt and Tettnang Tettnanger hops, slowly shifting to an almost lemon crispness towards the end.

This is a very refreshing beer, perfect for fans of wheat beers since is has a bit of that style's coriander and banana sweetness, great on it's own but going well with light pork and salad dishes. Cheers!

This is a good light bodies ale with a sweet citrus flavor, a light gold color with long lasting head and strong lacing. The bright citrus flavor helps make this as session-able beer for any palette.
