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.

Bottle. Poured sunshine yellow with thin white head. Much lacing. Full grassy pils aroma. Medium body, with malt body and rusky notes. Hop finish, with just a bit of spiciness. Lekker! Sorry it’s only a seasonal.

Draft at the Tampa Airport between flights. Deep golden pour, bright white head, nice lace. Nose is hop spice, lemony, slightly hebal. Flavor is fresh lemon, hop spice, lightly malty. Finish is well balanced hop bitterness, spicy rather than resiny or piney as would be desired in an ale. Refreshing and delicious.

Bottle. pours a clear golden color with head that lasts throughout the beer. aroma of bread, and of the hops. taste: there is a good balance of flavor with the hops while being a pilsner. this would be a good beer that you can drink all night long.

DuffMan (7540) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 24, 2010
Bottle as part of the Brewmasters Select Variety Pack. Pours a bright golden with a bubbly white head that leaves delicate lace. The aroma is fantastic: elderflower, ripe tropical fruit, light honey. Layers of nuanced hops bathe the palate, elderflower and papya and mango initially, followed by tart gooseberry and citrus pith bitterness. The malts play a perfect supporting role without being too sweet. This is the best pilsener I’ve had in a long time.

monkeychugg55 (940) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2010
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.

tgncc (2998) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JAN 24, 2010
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 (1661) - 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 (303) - 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!

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2010
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.
