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 Rerate- Tap at Alexus Steakhouse. Pours a nice clear straw golden with a frothy white head- some lace. Aroma is earthy spicy hops, light grass- fresh very light delicate malts, toast and bready- especially as it warms up. Warming it a bit from its tap serving temp also allows the flavor to open up considerably- fresh zesty herbal and floral hops- nice spicy kick and bready crisp pils malts- refreshing clean and just an awesome thing to see on tap in an otherwise lackluster lineup of taps at the bar. I hope to keep seeing this for a while.

12 oz bottle. Pours with a copper body with a thin head even when poured hard. Aroma is nice fresh cut grassy hops, bready malts, spicy herbal hops and a bit of slick biscuit malt that throws it off a bit. Flavor is sweet slick biscuit and bready malts, a bit too sweet, mineral bitter grassy and floral hops, clean chalky pez, toasted malts, grassy orange zesty hops, and a clean finish. Ok.

I guess I expected something else. It does taste very similar to the bohemian pilsner I drank a couple nights ago. That’s not really a good thing. I expected a fresher tasting pils, but this is just kinda watery and bland. Nose shows some very green (maybe overly so) "noble" hops and little else. Flavor has a watered down hop character, cereal, and a medium bitter finish. I wish I didn’t buy a whole 6 pack. Silly Sam.

Bottle. Pours yellow/gold, with a white head. Aroma is grass and hops. Flavor is grass, hops, and spices. Medium body, heavier than I would like. Overall, decent, but a bit too heavy and not quite crisp enough.

Not being a hophead, I was pleasently suprised by this one. Wonderful nose that is of wet hops. On the palate I get just the right amount of dryness, citrus and a hint of malt. All balanced very, very well.

TheGuy (653) - Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2010
Poured a golden yellow and clear with small white head, the aromas are of pale malts,hops, and citrus, taste is of the same with a crisp clean refreshingly light dry finish and is stated on the bottle to be made with all five noble hops I have to tip my hat to the crew at Sams very nicely done

HOOTER (4) - , Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2010 does not count
Pours gold and clear with a thick pillowy white head that fades quickly and leaves a fair amount of lacing on the sides of the glass. Mouthfeel is crisp and lively with some dryness in the finish. Aroma and flavor is mildy floral and balanced but somewhat typical. Overall a refreshing beer but not unique or special enough to purchase again.

Aubrey (3442) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Extremely clear and pale gold, with a creamy white head and decent lace. Texture is soft with moderate carbonation. Rich malt flavors of slightly sweet grains, crackers and toast. Hop flavors made me think of herbs and wheatgrass. Aromas were that of hay, flowers and other plants. Green, wet hop flavors in the aftertaste, along with a mild bitterness. Overall, I thought it was a fresh-, earthy- and decent-tasting beer.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Pours golden with a solid lingering head. Very herbal on the nose and the palate w/ good hop essence. Full malt body with good carbonation. Not bad but not real fresh tasting.

bottle from bbb63. Thanks mike! Pours a clear yellow with a big foamy tan head. Notes of grass hops, herbal hops, soap, and pilsner malt. Crisp, dry, refreshing. Pretty pleased with this. Now this would be a good session beer. this damn thing was gone before i knew it.
