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.

BiffNilsson (204) - Perstorp, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2013
Ren klar och frisk doft. Ljusgul färg med vit krona som löses upp snabbt. Smaken är ren och klar med bra beska. Ingen rolig öl, men en väldigt god pilsner.

Bov (9429) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 12, 2013
from Mondial de la Bière 2013, Mulhouse - light hazy golden-blond beer with a poor head retention; a charming and solid perfumy hoppy aroma with notes of yellow fruits and light herbal tones in the background; medium-bodied, tasty and with a subtle yet fair carbonation, clean and crisp, dry and decently bitter; herbal tones dominate the ffruits in the finish - very nice

I had this at Global Brew. Pours clear gold with a white head. Taste floral, bitter. I thought this was so so. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A solid pilsner. It has a much deeper and more pronounced grassy, somewhat floral hop character than you’d expect.

Gr0ve (2132) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2013
355 ml bottle. Golden and crystal clear. Small fine white head. Bold and delicate floral and grassy hop aroms. Light malty flavours. Rather sweet for a pilsener, but I think the hop flavours enhance the sweetness somewhat. Well balanced. A little low on carbonation perhaps, but overall a really nice flavourful pilsener.

VinegarStroke (270) - Napa, California, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle: Clear. Medium straw with light white head. Aroma is dominated with malt and supported by delicate hops. Malt, grain and straw with subtle citrus and fruit. Dry palate, moderate bitterness and no sourness. Medium weight and reasonably long. Once again malt flavors dominate. Bright, clear, fresh flavors. Would like to see more aromatic hops. Solid not great.

TET (1608) - FINLAND - NOV 23, 2013
A light yellow beer with a medum nad white head. The nose is unique, sweet malts, mandarin, flowers and honey. Taste is malty and slightly sweet of honey, flowers, hint of citrusfruits. Bitterness is quite mild, but still it’s enough. Basic taste of malts are there all the time. Medium bodied, smooth and pleasant to drink. Interesting and unique Pils, and yes, there are some "Noble" in this beer.
