SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The closest to thing to alpine terrain at the University of Iowa is walking up the hill from the IMU to the T. Anne Cleary Walkway. But that doesn't mean we can't enjoy this week's beer of the week — Samuel Adams Alpine Spring.

The brew is perfect for the transition from winter's heavier beer to the light, bright brews of summer.

The scent of the brew is just like that of spring. It comes with immediate floral, hay-like, and slight grassy notes and a lemony, citrus finish.

Alpine Spring features a lightly bready, crackery base and a hint of honey flavor.

Overall, it's a nice lager, a solid choice for an after class beer garden session.
