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.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2010 Pours a clear, golden yellow with a slew of carbonation bubbles racing toward a soft, frothy head. Nice lacing. The aroma has a lot of grassy citrus, spice, and some doughy malt. The flavor is a little bit sweet, but has a nice bitter finish, with some cereal and biscuit malt. Nice flavor. Well done.

Standard stuff. The aroma is bready, malty, spicy. The appearance is a gold color, crystal clear, white head. The flavor is bready, spicy. The finish is certainly bitter from hops, nobel hops specifically, and is somewhat spicy as well. Medium body. Decent for what it is.

ContemplateBeer (1525) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Aroma of bread, lemon grass and light hops. Appearance is golden with splotchy head. Flavor matches the nose, with bready malt and hops the main focus. Palate was bubbly. Decent for the style.

OzarkElmo (295) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - JAN 24, 2010
From bottle to pilsener flute glass. Pours a clear golden color with sizeable white head, mostly diminishing. Good lacing sustains through finish. Aroma is refreshing with citrus, honey, pine hops. Well-balanced with great taste and a good malt presence in the dry finish. A very good offering by Sam Adams and would definitely buy again - Cheers!

Bottle.
Pours a nice, lively yellow with a two-finger thick head that quickly settles to 1 cetimeter thick. Aroma is a light, buttery hops with hints of rose, honey, and sweet biscuit. Flavor is up-front hops tapered off by a sweet, honey-like biscuit lightly splashed with freshly squeezed lemon. Lively on the tongue. A great pilsner; I’ll be drinking this again.

arminjewell (6150) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Pours hazy yellow with white head, aroma is full of noble hop character that is grassy and slightly fruity. Taste is nice and hoppy up front with the grass and floral hops, with a spicy and dry finish. An excellent example of what a pilsener should be like!

milewide (1490) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Good tasting pils, but light on aroma. Taste is light grain, with modest hop bitterness and aftertaste. Pale blond color and thin body. Thin head.

hogan873 (449) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Clear golden body with a soapy white head that disipates quickly. Citrus and pine hops dominate the aroma, which invites you to take a sip. Medium mouthfeel with some bright carbonation towards the end. The taste starts with just a bit of malty sweetness. This is quickly pushed aside in favor of slightly suraged grapefruit and a punch of pine. Nice, smooth aftertaste. Good brew!

pkbites (676) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Very average looking (piss yellow with *BRIGHT* white head that dies quickly). Floral and hoppy aroma. Some citrus and citrus peel on the palate. No malt detected. Not as hoppy as I expected. Rather dry. There is no question this is a pilsner. The palate confirms it. Fair, but unimpressive.

Golden pourr with white head. big aroma of hops, and clean lager malt. Flavor is strong, dry, leafy hops, and pils malt. Finishes hoppy and malty. Hops dominate this one for a lager. Pretty impressive compared to their former crappy spring beer.
