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.

Pours a bright amber color with very little head. Floral fruity aroma. Citrus flavors along with some honey. Mouthfeel wasn’t as crisp as I like in a pilsener but this is a pretty good beer.

nuplastikk (4747) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 12, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2010 12oz bottle. Filtered orange-yellow. Big fluffy head that fades out into a thin soapy layer after a minute or so. Fresh brewery aroma, doughy with some fresh earthy hops. On the heavier side of light bodied, with some nice doughy character. The SA house yeast, the honeymalt, or whatever kind of shines too heavily, giving it a some fruity ale qualities, taking away some of the crispness that the style generally has. Still an enjoyable beer. Fresh and easy.

alagnak (467) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Draft @ local chain restaurant. Nose is clean, slight biscuit and citrus, though not really very ’aromatic’ at all. Flavor is light bready sweetness, with a closing slightly citric hop bitterness. Crisp, clean finish. Well-melded flavors throughout of slight malty sweetness and the lightly fruity hoppiness, though all the flavors could do with a little more ’zing’. Highly drinkable. Quite impressive and thirst quenching brew.

gkost (1714) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2010
UPDATED: APR 3, 2010 Pours a clear bold yellow. Nose is crisp malt, mild citrus, noble and floral hops all melded with a sharp lemon and hints of yeast and fresh grains. Flavor is a biting hop bitterness, crisp clean malt, floral notes, lots of lemon, lemongrass, hints of clove and mild spice. I am a big fan of this beer. This should be made all year round. Finishes clean, crisp, slight lingering hop bitterness. Very well done beer.

WakeandBake (549) - Greenville, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Bottle . A golden straw color pour with a two finger faomy white lasting head , good retention leaving jagged lacing down the glass ,medium carbonatin. Aroma is of a solid toasty malt background with a mixture of spicy hops , honey , caramel and biscut . Flavor is lightly sweet up front with hints of citrus and toasted malt grain , piny and spicy hops balance well with the malt backbone, mild bitterness with almost an earthy tone , fruity and spicy with a clean finish , a crisp clean mouthfeel , light body . I only bought one of these but I would deem it sessionable , I could see drinking several of these at one sitting , a smooth enjoyable beer , thanks Sam

12 oz bottle, best before May 2010, poured into a Sam Adams tasting glass.
Golden straw, with a fleeting eggshell white head. Spotty lacing left on the glass.
Bready aroma followed by mild spicy hops.
Flavor is light grain and bread, followed by some spicy floral hoppyness. Finish is clean and lightly bitter.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Bottle from Sam’s. Grassy/hay, slightly lemony hops. Very bready malt, though light. Much maltier than expected, which is a disappointment, because the hops seem a bit obscured. Very easy to drink, though. Had it while cooking and hardly noticed it.

HonkeyBra (3558) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Golden pourr with white head. big aroma of hops, and clean lager malt. Flavor is strong, dry, leafy hops, and pils malt. Finishes hoppy and malty. Hops dominate this one for a lager. Pretty impressive compared to their former crappy spring beer.
