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.

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.

Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma is grassy and floral hops, smells crisp, a little biscuity. Taste is simple and easy going, light gassy hops really smooth and refreshing with a faint bitterness. I might buy this again for a hot summer day.

Lys brun med et tykt skumlag som henger på glasset. Lukter syrlig/frukt, medium kullsyre og bitterhet. God, litt bitter ettersmak, rett og slett en meget god pils!

Noble hops are amazing. They’re complex yet very approachable. This pilsener makes great use of them. It captures their sweet, fresh, and herbal flavors. The biscuit-like malts are a smart match. This is one of my favorite brews from Samuel Adams and, in my opinion, one of their best.
