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. Large very fizzy white head with poor retention, fair amount of lacing, transparent body, fast rising carbonation, and a yellow hue. The aroma is malty, herbal, honey, spicy, grassy, citrus hops. The flavor is malty, mildly spicy, citrus hops, and has a chalky finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and this is a light bodied beer. Overall, an easy to drink pils, but I guess I was expecting too much and ended up being disappointed with the overall taste of said beer and especially the chalky finish.

iride15 (237) - Rockledge, Florida, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2010
Bottle. Poured yellow gold with a thin white head and plenty of lace. Grass and flower aroma. Hops are subdued, and have less spice than I would have expected from a winter pils. No idea why this came out in the winter, but it’ll make a good spring/summer back-porch beer.

slitcher (266) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2010 Pours a bright gold with a medium head. Aromas of citrus hops and bread. Flavor is slightly bitter with a long, dry finish that makes you want more. This is better than I expected it to be. I do agree with other reviewers that this would be a better summer release though. Actually, I wish they would brew this year-round. A very tasty and thirst-quenching brew.

Tejas (955) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 26, 2010
Draught > Gingerman. Pretty good. Hoppy at first but fades. Hops are flowery instead of the spicy flavor that i sometimes find in pils. This would be a good summer release. Not quite sure why it came out in the middle of winter? Good beer to start the night off on.

Odyn (266) - New York, USA - JAN 25, 2010
Really disappointing. I had this on draft and found that it have very little flavor and aroma. It was bland and didn’t go well with my food. Basically it was just wet and yellow.......

Light gold pour with fluffy white head. Citrus and earthy hop aroma. Crisp malt, earthy hop taste. Light and flavorful, almost like a kolsch. I think this is suppose to be a winter seasonal, but I would like to see it in the summer.

DietPepsican (1571) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JAN 25, 2010
Gold with a good bit of carbonation. Solid bready aroma with plenty of citrus hops. Flavor follows on the same boat. FInishes bitter, very easy to drink.

Botnik (142) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 25, 2010
12oz bottle, medium gold with a thin white head and some lacing. Citrus with an herbal finish. I don’t generally care for pilsners, but this one was interesting.

troopie (2290) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JAN 25, 2010
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.
