2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mmm, det här var lite svårpreciserat. Ölen är okej men inget speciellt, smaken känns fin och lätt med lätta toner av citrus, persika och torkat hö. Kroppen är något liten och ölen är lite för bubblig/kolsyrad för min smak.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 355 ml bottle, poured into a footed pilsner glass, slightly opaque light golden with a large beige foamy head with good retention. A pleasant aroma of citrus, pineapple, herbs and spices. Taste is similar to the aroma. Somewhat sweet with just a hint of bitterness. Well carbonated, medium body and a slightly slick texture. Samuel Adams Noble Pils is marketed as a traditional Bohemian Pilsner, but this beer has an aroma and taste unlike any Czech pilsner I have ever had. But that is not a bad thing in this case, tasty, intriguing and unique.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours a clean, pale, urine-yellow color. A tight white head of small bubbles forms to a about a half finger’s width and then fizzles to a scrim. The head leaves a sticky lacing of thin, hole-ridden sheets on the sides of the glass. In body, the beer is lager clean and full of nicely-paced bubbles that feed the head. No particles are present in the beer, and it seems entirely free of any haze. On the nose, the beer smells delicate, crisp, and hoppy with Noble spice. A strong, light caramel note gives the nose a light stickiness, while still remaining delicate. Herbal grass and light dankness can also be sensed in the beer, nicely showcasing the Noble hops. On the tongue, the beer tastes soft and floral sweet. Gentle bitterness touches the palate in the middle of the sip and carries on into the finish, providing some nice balance. The sweetness does incorporate some fruitier aspects, and a light citric acidity can be sensed on the sides of the cheeks, but in all his beer is delicate and balanced. The beer feels light in body, with a crisp, slightly slick mouthfeel and a soft carbonation that still carries a little bite on the tongue. The flavor begins as light grass and flowers with a soft spice. Caramel and cracker malt move in after a while, bringing with them a sweet, almost apple juice flavor that I sometimes detect in pilsners. Faint salt character can be detected on the back of the tongue. The finish is softly citric lemon peel with a touch of cracker and grass. The aftertaste is mellow cracker malt. Overall, this is a nicely reserved beer with some great balance. The apple juice sweetness does briefly get a little too much for the subtlety of the style, but never too much so. The beer is soft, and perfect for a fatigued palate or a midweek drink.

(Bottle). Special fragrance with aromas of sweet malt, honey, figs and fresh slightly spicy hops. Fresh taste of hops, malt, honey and bread. Slightly dry bitterness in the finish. The aftertaste is a bit thin and watery. Body is a almost light, but hey! it’s a Pilsner. OK beer!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A bright golden yellow coloured beer with a frothy white head. A light citrusy hop aroma, lemon, lime and grapefruit. Then a biscuity malt aroma later. Dry mouthfeel. A bitter hop taste, grassy, and pithy citrus fruit, all the elements from the aroma come through again. Then a drying malt flavour that then comes through to match the citrus hop in the finish.
