COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
2009 Beer Loverís 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 worldís 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.

Clear golden pour with a nice sized white head. Currently have a cold so no real aroma. Flavor is a bit spicey with a lot of (of course) noble hops saaz, halaertaur. Standard pilz fair but this one has a nice bite as well. Very refreshing pilsner and well crafted all-around brew.

12 oz. bottle- Pours pale golden with little head and good lacing, the aroma isnít much, some sweet citrus. The flavor is crisp and refreshing with a mild hop presence, this is an allaround chugging beer, not bad.

I was expecting a dark color, but was surprisingly shocked when I noticed how clear it was. It has a smooth, soft flavor of hops, with a slight citrus tone to it. Virtually no foam around the rim.

Pours a golden color with a medium to small sized soapy white head. Heavy notes of grass, cheese, honey, grains, and catty ammonia. Good example of the style.

bomber from Total Wine. pours a clean golden with little white head... really would like a bigger head on this one... a nice soft quarter inch white head when you give it a swirl... big spice, grass and citrus hop nose... medium body with a very nice bitter quality from front to back... somewhat oily feel... nice finish with more hops that stick with you longer than the average pils - this is a really nice hoppy Pilsner that is the perfect afternoon beer. very drinkable and enjoyable. Plus the perfect price - I think Iíll be drinking lots of this....

Crystal clear golden coloured body with a frothy white head and some bubbles rising from the bottom, although not many. The colour is way lighter than Iíd assume from this beer, but after all, itís Sammy. Aroma of fresh hops, some grapefruit and pine as well - but this is pretty mild, but definitely ascertainable. Light-bodied; Sharp pungent hop flavour comes through with hardly any malt balance, no fruity or sweet kick and no complexity at all. Aftertaste shows some hop character, a touch of grass and nothing else. Overall, a pretty mild and subdued beer that shows a faint hop character. Good for an evening in hot weather after cutting the grass or something, but not for normal drinking. This isnít really like any Czech beers I had in the country, so they should stop with stupid references like that. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Harris Teeter in Pentagon City (Arlington), Virginia for US$2 sampled at home in Washington the same day - 22-January-2010.

Reid (1993) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 22, 2010
Regular looking lager type..pale gold with a nice frothy/thick off white head. Very citrusy aroma mostly lemon, something else cant put finger on..ah its black peppercorns, slightly eathy. taste is also peppery, with smooth honey like sweet ness, hops are understated.mBut get a nice after taste. Ok mouthfeel nothing stellar. Overall a strange PIls kinda like Full Sails attempt last year. Good but hardly near a classic pils.

bockimstein (167) - New Madrid, Missouri, USA - JAN 22, 2010
A very fine pilsner. 12 oz. bottle to Samuel Adams lager glass. Pours light honey with medium head that lasts just a tad longer than most, with spotty lacing. I got nice hops aromas of citrus and grass, some bread but rather inconspicuous. Good pils taste--hops do their job nicely. Creamy texture with a very dry finish--arid. Please sir, may I have another? Ein prosit!

The aroma is somewhat weak with a slight hint of the hops. Pours to a medium bodied white head and is light yellow and clear in appearence. Taste not overpowering, but goes down smooth enough and has no bitter aftertaste. Not one of sam adams best, but not their worst either.
