COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
2009 Beer Lovers 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 worlds 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.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2010 The more beer I drink, the more I appreciate beers like this. This is so solid all the way through. Excellent lemony hops and bright malt with just enough heft. I have had more exciting examples of the style, but this one works just fine. Comparable to Oskar Bluess fine Yella Pils. As a follow-up, I wanted to mention that I purchased this regularly all spring. Repeated purchases, I believe, are the best measure of quality.

bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Pours a clear golden with a thin frothy head and some lacing. Aroma is bready with some grassy hops. Taste is also a bit bready with earthy, citrus hop presence and some honey. Light bodied with medium carbonation and a mild hop finish. Overall not very impressive.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2011 just not much to this...strong nose, but flavors are all over and pretty weak..citrusy sweet aroma and taste light herbal hops, some honey..SA says full body but thats definitely lacking..good to try but ones enough for me... Update-My second go at this was a nice surprise at Joes Crab Shack. very smooth with a lite but pleasant taste. The flavor came through great. this is a very good tasting beer its just a little lite but i guess thats what the style calls for. This is back on my good beer list

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 31, 2010
On tap. Clear amber with off-white, rocky head. Sort of a citrus hop nose. Taste is a mix of citrus IPA flavors and some very strange sweet cloying- syrupy sweetness. A little gross.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Serving: 12 oz. bottle. A clear yellow pour with a small, froathy, white head. Good head retention. I really struggled to get much of a nose off this one. Light grass notes were about all I got. The taste was a bit buttery with mellow grass, hay, spicy hop, and floral notes. As the beer warms, I get a touch of soap as well. It is medium bodied with a long, bitter finish. All in all one of Sams better attempts.

drewbeerme (3919) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2010
12oz bottle. pours clear golden with foamy white head. looks perfect for a pils. a nice hoppy aroma of grass, earth, wood, and leather. flavors has a good presence of noble hops, notes of grass, leather, and touch of citrus. thin body, very clean finish. a well hopped and made pils.

jake65 (3493) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Draft: Rich golden pour with a finger of off-white head. Moderate aroma is floral and lightly bready. The noble hops provide a nice flavor up front and provides a floral and citrus element before a soothing bready malty finish. Good crisp finish. The maltiness really kept the hops in check and was a fun brew in the end.

MOboy (504) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JAN 31, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2011 Wonderful golden color with a fair, white foam that last less than a minute. The aroma is pilsner malt and dried hops. Quite bitter with a dried hop taste that lasts the duration of the drink. A better offering than the White Ale it replaced but still could use some work.
