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.

Look of pale lager. Decent head. Smelll is sterile in a good way, no bad olfactories here. Bitter and strong, right from the beginning, nearly astringent pils. Little carbonation even tho it looks pretty bubbly in the glass. Surprizingly bitter pale yellow pils, even on the finish.

LinusStick (3274) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2010
A delicious pilsener. Aroma was on the weak side. LIght pilsener malt with some biscuit and a hint of grassy hops. Pour was a straw gold with no bubbles and a thin white film for a head. Taste was very nice. Strong hoppy flavor in the front that carries over to the aftertaste. Good strong carbonation. Dry aftertaste. Nice beer.

On tap at Bar Louie. Color is straw yellow with thin frothy white head. Aroma is of lemon zest, grain. Taste is of lemon, hops, grain and wheat. Body is crisp and light/medium body. Not bad pilsener!

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2010 Beer is rated to style. Great pour into my Samuel Adams glass - luminous golden color with rich white head of fine bubbles. Nose is somewhat clean with a very nice herbal mustiness. On the palate it is refreshingly light (but not too light), crisp, and again the herbal-hop flavors come through to give it great character. Reminds me of what beer is all about when I first got into beer with the refreshing/drinkability aspect that this one does so well. A great pils.

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Pours clear gold with a fluffy 1-2 finger eggshell head that has good retention and leaves some lacing. Aroma is dried grass, herbal/planty hops, biscuit, a hint of citrus rinds, hay, honey and some grainy notes. Flavor is planty hops, hay, dry grass, spice, citrus, light ginger, light biscuit like malts and a leafy, grassy finish that has a hint of citrus to it. Palate is light bodied and dry throughout with a very active, slightly over shap carbonation. Good stuff overall, I think it could use a little less of the spicy notes and a little softer carbonation though.

blipp (8387) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Light hoppy aroma with some crackery malts. Beautiful noble hops right up front, spicy and floral, with some pale malty notes supporting. Tasty and drinkable.

Barreras (1601) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Pours a golden yellow with minimal head. Aroma of rose petals and mild sweetness. Taste a little like grains and leaves a mild acidic aftertaste. A mild, light beer from Sam Adams that is nothing unique, yet would be enjoyable on a hot summer day.
