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.

Clear golden pour with fluffy white head and pretty nice sticky lacing. Aroma is sweet, malty, and a hint of hop bitterness. Some honey sweet flavor with a bit of bitterness on the end.

Bottle. Clear golden body lasting white head. Nice juicy noble hops. Herbal. Light citrus, grassy. Light sweet grain. Flavor is grainy and grassy with light bread and soap. Lively bubbles, dry, light. Solid little pils.

Cavie (3748) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JAN 16, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Fratto. I traded him a Budweiser. Sucka...... Clear gold pour with a white foamy head. Slightly body odorish in smell but a large hop spiced aroma. Taste is bitter hop that morphs into a peanut protein flavor. Very dry on the finish with a wet spell on the back of the throat. Different but quite a bit of spice.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 16, 2010
In the bottle from Beertopia. Pours rich gold with a medium thick white head that lasts longer than you’d think it would. This is a boring beer. I suppose that I just don’t get it. Salty and fizzy. Hopped, but just a few minutes out in the light and this thing starts tasting skunked. This is nothing to rave about.

( 12oz bottle) pours clear orange-yellow with nice lasting creamy head. Nose of earthy hops, honey and citrus. Taste is earth, unsweet honey, and lightly bitter hops. Finish is well carbonated, earthy, and creamy. Drinkable and pretty high on flavor but lacking sweetness. There is also an odd floral flavor and some fruity pebbles even.

JMerritt (1767) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2010
Pours clear, medium gold with a large, very bright-white head. Head is slowly diminishing, lacing left behind like frothed egg whites. Aroma is at first grassy, but quickly replaced by sharp citrus and flowery honey. Further sniffs pick up light yeast and toasted bread. Moderately bitter flavor, increasingly bitter as you hold it in your mouth. Finish is mildly sweet, and here is where the dried straw, hay, and grasses really shine. Lingering aftertaste has notes of grapefruit and orange rind. Mouthfeel is moderately carbonated, perfect for the style. Very well made, and I was happy to try this when it was noticeably fresh.

Sam Adams Pils is true to style and a great light quencher that would be perfectly paired with chicken dishes. Aroma is grassy with a hint of earthiness. Dry and balanced, light bodied, with a consistent bitterness throughout. Finish shows lingering grassiness. A finely balanced clean Pils.

Samuel Adams Noble Pils is a crystal clear, sparkling, golden lager with a small, white head that dissipates. It has a very fruity aroma that’s bright and lemony. It smells a touch sweet and a little doughy. It’s medium-light bodied; lively with a crisp finish. It has a nice, fruity, wooden flavor with an appropriate amount of bitterness and a lemony aftertaste. It’s flavorful and refreshing.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 15, 2010
Dark straw color with a diminishing white head. Herbal to floral hops aromas, with oregano, bay leaves, rosemary and zinnias. Watery to chalky in feel. Weeds blowing in the wind on a late summer day comes to mind when I taste this. Dry and herbal. Hints of malt, but not enough to help diminish the dry herbs. Chose, but not quite the pils I’m looking for.

Mora2000 (5530) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 15, 2010
Pours a golden yellow color with a one finger white head. Poured into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass. The aroma is grassy with some hay features. It is also slightly musty. The flavor is heavy on the malt with a nice citrus hop character. The finish is bitter. Light bodied and medium carbonation.
