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.

(bottle - 12 oz) Dark golden pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is hoppy and lightly sweet with some pepper and floral notes. Flavor is a very nice pils beginning. Some mild sweetness mixed with a good amount of peppery and flowery hops. Some malt and sweetness comes through at the end leaving a crisp and bitter finish.

brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 26, 2009
Pours a dark yellow with a foamy white head - aroma of spice, malt, herb along with citrus hop notes. Taste is floral citrus hops with some balancing malt and light spiciness. This turned out to be a better beer than I was expecting as I am not a Pils fan at all - but overall not too bad.

Thank you Eric for this Sample A PILS bottle! Poured a medium and slightly hazy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of bicuit, grains, and some citrus. Tastes of grains, earthy, lighter biscuity, and citrus. Thinner body.

MadIndian (2743) - 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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Bottle: Pours a clear yellow color, puffy white head. Crisp light saaz in the nose with a light biscuity malt note. Nice light body and a refreshing finish. Clean, but needs a little more hops and bitterness.
