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.

Bottle from Systembolaget, part of a variety 4-pack. Clear gold, lively carbonation. Central European hop aroma, and a flavour of the same. Pepper, fruit, grass. Like the best Czech lagers. Heavy Saaz footprint.

_angst_ (2366) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2013
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Gusher! Pours tiny hazy yellow with a frothy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of trace and lacing on the glass. Smell is subtle with crackers, grass, lemon zest, dry soil and hints of lemonade. Taste is bitter and herbal with crackers, lemon balm, grass, dry wood, lemon grass, lemon zest, sea salt, dry soil and hints of lemon juice. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry and light bodied. Finish is bitter with crackers, lemon grass, lemon zest, cedar, dry soil and hints of persimmon and old bread. Nicely refreshing...

gegwilson (621) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2013
Bottle from Rhythm & Booze, Ripon. Slightly cloudy golden beer with quite a good lasting white head. Some herb and pine notes, but not a particularly interesting beer for my tastes.
