Light murky golden. Bit fruit punch on the nose. As others said it’s maybe more golden ale than pils. This a bit old, hops dwindled and is drinking more with a honey note..

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.

I drink all the Sam Adams stuff that people leave behind. They are awesome to drink after drinking all day.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
