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.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a clear light golden colored body with a thick one finger white lumpy head that left speckled lacing trickling down the sides of the glass. A fair amount of carbonation is seen rising. The smell had some hops with some pine, grassiness and lighter fruits. I also note some light pepper in the smell. The taste had the lighter fruits (citrus) dominate with some pine and hops come back but remain very much so in the background. Some malts come out in the taste. The palate is mostly balanced, sessionable, crisp aftertaste and finish. Overall, this is not a bad beer, but nothing spectacular. I think I would have this again, but most likely on tap.

Pours a clear golden witha substantial foamy white head that hangs around. Decent lacing. Smells of grass, bread, hops and a but of citrus. Those follow through to the taste. The hops provide a good bit of bitterness. Mouth is light with some carbonation. I’m not a huge pilsner person, but this is a nice beer.

Quite bitter this one was. But nice in the brewing field. Quite crafty and unfiltered in looks too.

Bottle at home. Pour is slightly hazy golden with a decent sized head and good lacing. Noble hoppy, somewhat chalky, grassy, biscuity, minerally, and straw aroma. Taste is straw, grassy, minerals, toasted cracker, bread, slight cereal, and lemon with a light bitter finish. Light body with high carbonation. Not too shabby.

Clear light golden with a thin, but sticky and persistent white head. The nose is quite grassy and a little herbal with just enough blonde lager biscuit peeking through. Spicy flavor with some lemonpepper, spicy saaz hops, a nice fresh grassiness, and a quiet and restrained biscuity malt backbone. Pleasantly hoppy pils that isnt an IPL or something gimmicky.

From 12 oz bottle in Chimay chalice. Pours gold in color with moderate head and lace. Aroma of straw hops and sweet malts. Significant carbonation and moderate mouthfeel. Flavors of straw hops, light herbs, pepper, amber malts. Overall tasty with some astringency.

The beer pours a golden yelllow, with white lacing. The taste is clean, crisp, with a spicy note, all of which is in line with the Pilsner style. A subtle hop flavor adds complexity to this enjoyable beer. This is one of the best Sam Adams beers I’ve tasted. An excellent example of a Pilsner.
