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.

daknole (9443) - 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.

Sample at Blacklick WIne and Spirits. This smelled like wet socks and tasted like feet. UGH. Sorry. This is one of the worst offerings I have ever tasted from Sam Adams...In our group of about 20 only one person voted for this one...Typical boring pilsener...Which is already saturating the market.

Rusty (1537) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 30, 2009
Sample at Papago Brewing. Pours a light golden color with a white head. Aroma is malt, touch of hops. Flavor is malt, honey, a touch of hops. Some bitterness in the finish. Nice offering from Sam Adams. Wish they would just release both of the test beers from this contest.

Dogbrick (8680) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Sample at Neil’s HSC initation. The beer pours a clear yellow color with a thin and fizzy white head that burns away quickly. Thin strings of lacing on the glass. Light Saaz hops aroma with a bit of pale malt. Light body with flavors of mildly spiced hops, malt and hay. The finish is clean and lightly hopped with a short spice aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.
