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.

MadIndian (2614) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2009
On tap during the annual Boston/Salem/Marble head tour. Sampled at the brewery for their public testing of their next release. Golden pour with a mild aroma hint flavor is pleasing for it’s style. It was ok but I did not choose this one.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - OCT 9, 2009
Appearance: A slightly cloudy, otherwise mostly clear yellow gold with a dense, foamy 1/4 inch white head. Aroma: Biscuity malt, earthy hops. Neither odor is rather strong. Taste: A slightly acidic twang I associate with crappy beer, bitterness, and crisp malt. Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. A bit thick. Overall: Sample B please.
