What the brewers say

“It took years to acquire the materials and formula for Alpenflo—we’re talking all-malt, 100 percent 2-row barley, and we source all of the hops directly from family farms in Bavaria to give it that gentle spice. This lager is then cold-stored in horizontal lagering tanks to round out the flavor profile.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Clean, bready malt along with a fair touch of pastry. Sweet impression. Very light spicy hops. Sweetness gives an impression this should be darker in color.”

Flavor: “The flavor is much drier than the nose hints at. Clean bready malt immediately joined by biscuits and a pleasant spicy hops flavor. Bitterness is perfectly balanced during the sip, but builds a little in the aftertaste, strengthening the bitter impression. Very clean ferment. Enough body to carry the flavors all the way through.”

Overall: “Light and clean. The hops bitterness lifts the overall perception and gets the beer noticed. Grab some today.”
