COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Draft at The Boathouse. Poured clear amber color with an average white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew

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!

Aroma is of nice malts and floral with notes of light fruits/citrus. Taste is of nice malts well blended with floral and fruit. Crisp, medium bodied with good carbonation. Ending is of a nice floral and fruit blend with lemon notes.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2011 Bottle: Pours a clear dark yellow with a large fluffy head, aroma is very floral and grassy with a hint of lemon. Starts and ends light bitter with a pleasant citrus taste at the end. Light bodied and smooth with ample carbonation. Hopefully this will be available during the summer.

Sammer (1065) - Plano, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2010
Yellow pour from bottle. Pretty tame taste. Wish it had more bitterness given the hop profile. Still, decent and drinkable. Maybe I expected too much from the usually solid Sam Adams family.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 29, 2010
Bottle. Poured a clear golden color. The head was two fingers high and dissipated over a minute or so. Nice mix of hop and malt in the nose with grass, subdued caramel, cereal grain, and earthy/spicy hops. Light to medium bodied and delicately sweet with mild to moderate hop bitterness. Flavors followed the nose pretty closely; grassy/leafy/earthy hops, cereal and a bit of caramel. Nice, easy drinking beer.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 29, 2010
Golden pour with a minimal white head that recedes quite expediently. The body holds very little carbonation. The aroma is caramel, toasty malt, spicy-herbal hop notes, and some moderate cereal grains. The flavor it hop forward for the style- herbal spice and a slight lemon peel. The malt component is largely caramel in nature, but it quite dominated by the hop profile. Impressive I suppose. The palate is light to medium with medium effervescence and a dry resinous finish. Quite nice for the style actually.

craftycarl21 (2285) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 29, 2010
Clear gold pour, minimal white head. Aroma holds rosemary, citrus hop, spice, grain, caramel, and toast. Flavor is quite hoppy, with lots of lemon, rosemary, a touch of sage, and some more caramel and grain. Fairly light palate with some hop bitterness at the finish. A solid pilsener.
