2009 Beer Lover’s Choice Contestant - Sample A. Similar to a traditional Czech Pilsner, our Samuel Adams Pils is brewed with a blend of 5 Noble Hop varieties from each of the world’s only remaining Noble Hop growing regions. The spicy, herbal and citrus hop character is well balanced by the Weyermann Bohemian Pilsner malt, adding honeyed malt character and full body without sweetness.

Chrisco88 (9) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2010 does not count
Appearance: Yellow/gold with a small white head. Aroma: Very minimal aroma, light floral hop notes. Taste: A bit watery, very light and goes down easy. The grassy aftertaste is a turn-off. Palate: Blah, very bland and a bit grainy. Overall: Meh, easy to drink but nothing special in any department, wish the hop flavors weren’t so lingering.

12oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear, yellow-gold colored body with a thin, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma definitely has some brighter citrus and very fresh smelling, lightly sweetened pils malts. Some herbal spices, hay, and honey as well. Flavor is a little spicier than the aroma. A nice portrayal of the herbal hoppiness and dry hay. A light grainy sweetness and a touch of honey as well as a brighter, zesty citrus. Finishes dry, clean, and crisp with a light to moderate bitterness that lingers for a good amount of time. Light bodied, very smooth, and easy drinking with a light carbonation. Overall, a really nice new pils from these guys. Light and crisp with a good hop flavor. Not much to complain about here.

Bottle from stateline... Crappy looking beer. Looks like miller lite except with a good head. Good aroma of some fruity hops. Taste has a nice smooth bitterness to it. Fruity, a little spicy but with a nice overall bitterness. They use a lager yeast for this??? Anyway...super soft on the palate, easy to drink. Nice session beer. Number 900 for me!

Pours a crystal clear light yellow with a white head. Aromas of citrus and pine are followed by a taste that matches with a very tasteful bitter finish. I only bought one, but wouldn’t mind having a sixer of this.

Overall I would say this is a well made attempt at a German style Pils however the citrusy hops give me the impression of an American Style Pale Ale. This would be a great beer summertime beer.

demonstrative brew it is hoppy with a peppery German type hop and a nice citrus infusion that is... tamed. cereal grain finish to a malt character that is at first warm and with a light hint of leather. palate is a melage of slick and refreshing and well carbonated and substantial foam. lingering, lingers of combination of flavors slowly dissapearing....this is a proud American session!
