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.

12oz bottle poured into pint glass. Pours clear golden color with medium white head. Aromas pretty bland. Crisp and clean tasting.. Very slight bitterness. Flavor is also very clean with citrus hop, light spice, light clean crystal malt, a faint spice, and a lightly yeasty finish.

Hopmaestro (174) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
Pilsener... I think of my granddad when I hear the word. Does it taste like an old man? No. The aroma is modest hops, some chalk and grass. The taste is light bread, malt and a touch of lemon. Maybe some minerals in there? Overall though, a good solid drinkable pils.

A typical pilsner. Gold color, good amount of carbonation etc. Typical pilsner aroma of bread and grass. A very mild hop bitterness. also a little sweet and tart. A decent pilsner

60minuteman (835) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2014
A well balanced pils of citrus hops, spices, I think peppercorns, toasted malt and barley. Sticky, sweet and bitter finish creates an impressive pilsner after the hop kick. Clean and enjoyable. Good session beer.

what a pleasant surprise here. lots of hops for the style, but i sure ain’t complainin...best pils i’ve had in a while. i loved the delicate hop aroma and flavor. always there, but not too agressive. still has a classic crisp malt backbone. SA nailed this one."

Good beer. Pours light yellow, with a white head that desolves quickly. Has a grassy and malty aroma. I tasted some grassy and citrus hops, not extremely hoppy with a slight malt balance. A light bodied beer with a slightly bitter finish. I will definitely have this beer again.

solidfunk (4322) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 9, 2014
OK and easy drinking but not a lot going on here in terms of aroma. Pours golden with foamy initial head and no lacing. Light grainy and sour finish. Bottle from Chevy chase.

Rather intense grassy hop aroma for a pilesner, which is good. A bit hazy, goldoen color. Some bitterness. Quite okay.
