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.

Sample "B" @ BBF - Pours golden with a small white head...aroma is clean, dough, citrus and some grain, floral...flavour is similar, yeast, spice and grain with some light bitterness and a malty finish...decent, won my vote over the alternative, but that doesn’t say much...

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2010 Sampled at Music City Brewers Festival. Bud like....meaning not good. Crisp and clean but that’s the nice things I can say. Wasn’t a bad bottle just not a good beer. Get a little more creative next time Sam Adams. This years taste off was a disappointment. 2nd tasting: OK not nearly as bad as it was last time. Actually had some decent hop character. Pretty good little pils. Not even close to as good as prima pils though.

Bottle. Pours a clear medium golden color with a small white head that left decent lacing. Nose of sharp herbal and citrus hops with some Euro malts. Very crisp refreshing flavor with some of that German Pilsener funk, decent stuff.

Part of the new Beer Lover’s Choice 2009. Poured from a bottle into a small cup. The color is a yellowish gold with a slight white head. The smell is pretty citrus with some piney hop flavor. The taste is a bit crisp and a bit spicey. Some malty pilsner taste. Some nice citrus feel and some hints of sweet malt flavor. The feel of this beer is light with a medium body

Sample tasting at the Del Mar race track. Pours a nice golden hue with a medium white head. Nose is crisp with a nice citrusy tone. Flavors start with a nice hoppiness, a lot more then I expected in a pilsener, then the pilsener malts join nicely with a sweetness to counter the bitterness of the citrus hops. Very nice beer I was pleasantly surprised. This sample got my vote although both were excellent.

daknole (9099) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2009
Sample bottle thanks to Joey at CCB. Thanks so much!!! Gold pour. Fluffy white head. Smells like a pils. Grainy, some light hops, grass. Ok I don’t like pils. But as far as they go, this one was really ok. Still I wouldnt want to drink it more than once. Flavor is a bit smooth, some hoppiness and boring.
