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.

Pours a transparent bright golden with a well-lacing froth of clingy white head. Aroma of fresh noble hops and some lightly sweet pale malts. Starts with pretty good fullness for the style and a well-dissolved carbonation with some light grainy maltiness and soft noble hop flavors before a crisp, bittersweet, refreshing finish. Pretty true to style and quite drinkable. Would make for a nice session beer.

Braudog (6341) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2010
Draft at Hard Rock - Detroit. Bright golden and quite active with a nice head. Rich and malty with a biscuity character. Nicely balanced with a European bitter bite. Nice. (#3815, 1/24/2010)

spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 28, 2010
Draft. Pours a clear pale yellow/golden body with a medium sized white head with little retention and some nice lacing. Aroma is crisp fresh hops, malts, grassy and lemon cirtrus. Flavor is also citrusy, light hops, malty. Not bad in the least but not that great either.

beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - JAN 28, 2010
Aroma is pretty muted on this. Pours an almost orange mostly yellow. bubbly and burp inducing. nice cereal taste but then a really cloying bitterness lingers and lingers

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JAN 28, 2010
Bottle. Pours a copper body with a white head. Clean crisp, light spruce, grass, some bitter hop resins, a light pine, and earth y and herbal tones. A light bread y body with a squeeze of lime, some mild citrus rinds and a modest bitter lively hop bite. A very nice pils i must say.

ucfknightscott (56) - Casselberry, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2010
Pours a pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is very grassy and citrusy, with notes of lemon, pine, and light malt. Drinks very light and refreshing. The noble hops dominate the palate, but balanced well with malt. A very refreshing beer. I can definitely see myself drinking this on a hot day. Not bad.

This beer was exceedingly hoppy but in a nice and crisp way. The aroma was very strong and the flavor followed through. Very nice mix of the noble hops. Nice and enjoyable for a hop lover like me.

I got to vote on this beer at the 2009 Blues & Brews in Akron. I was pretty exicted to see it pop up in all the major beer outlets in the area. The aroma is floral hops. The pour is a rich golden yellow with a medium sized white head. The taste nice and mild hoppy. The hops are not over powering, but give nice floral, citrus and some pine flavors. The finish is clean and dry. This is a very enjoyable beer.

Found this one bottled in Wasco, Illinois. Clear, champagne bubbly medium yellow pour with a thin but foamy white head; floral, grassy and spicey hoppiness balanced with a bit of nuttiness; flavor is complex, nice bitterness but balanced; slightly dry finish. Very highly drinkable but not overpowering in any particular way.
