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.

Cold in a pint glass. Pours golden yellow with a moderate head that dissipates quickly with faint lacing. Lots of floral hop aroma and some citrus and resin. Its very much like an IPA but has the body of a Pils. Overall, its a decent beer and I’m kinda shocked that a major brewer took the risk. To hop a mass market beer this aggressively gets them some points in my book. I’m not sure I would get it again but it was interesting. The thing is that if I want an IPA I would get an IPA. It I want a Pils would get a pils. What makes this one interesting is basically what make its odd to drink.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2010 Pitcher at off the wagon. Pour is your standard piss light yellow lager.. But it was pretty dark in the bar. Taste is light floral hops, slight citrus, dry and light. Not horrible but uberly light... Probably the lightest Sam I’ve had. Rerate: I actually like this.. not sure if I had the same stuff originally. Nice sweet grapefruit tang and juicy hop.. good.

Ummmm... beautiful golden color, nice head, but the taste... not terrible, not great, and this not really a real pilsner-beer either, come on... tastes like a version of their "Boston Lager" with some old crusty orange peels tossed in?!

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.
