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.

I guess I expected something else. It does taste very similar to the bohemian pilsner I drank a couple nights ago. Thats not really a good thing. I expected a fresher tasting pils, but this is just kinda watery and bland. Nose shows some very green (maybe overly so) "noble" hops and little else. Flavor has a watered down hop character, cereal, and a medium bitter finish. I wish I didnt buy a whole 6 pack. Silly Sam.

Bottle. Pours yellow/gold, with a white head. Aroma is grass and hops. Flavor is grass, hops, and spices. Medium body, heavier than I would like. Overall, decent, but a bit too heavy and not quite crisp enough.

legion242 (2344) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2010
Not being a hophead, I was pleasently suprised by this one. Wonderful nose that is of wet hops. On the palate I get just the right amount of dryness, citrus and a hint of malt. All balanced very, very well.

Poured a golden yellow and clear with small white head, the aromas are of pale malts,hops, and citrus, taste is of the same with a crisp clean refreshingly light dry finish and is stated on the bottle to be made with all five noble hops I have to tip my hat to the crew at Sams very nicely done

HOOTER (4) - , Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2010 does not count
Pours gold and clear with a thick pillowy white head that fades quickly and leaves a fair amount of lacing on the sides of the glass. Mouthfeel is crisp and lively with some dryness in the finish. Aroma and flavor is mildy floral and balanced but somewhat typical. Overall a refreshing beer but not unique or special enough to purchase again.

Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Extremely clear and pale gold, with a creamy white head and decent lace. Texture is soft with moderate carbonation. Rich malt flavors of slightly sweet grains, crackers and toast. Hop flavors made me think of herbs and wheatgrass. Aromas were that of hay, flowers and other plants. Green, wet hop flavors in the aftertaste, along with a mild bitterness. Overall, I thought it was a fresh-, earthy- and decent-tasting beer.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Pours golden with a solid lingering head. Very herbal on the nose and the palate w/ good hop essence. Full malt body with good carbonation. Not bad but not real fresh tasting.

SrSilliGose (3328) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 18, 2010
bottle from bbb63. Thanks mike! Pours a clear yellow with a big foamy tan head. Notes of grass hops, herbal hops, soap, and pilsner malt. Crisp, dry, refreshing. Pretty pleased with this. Now this would be a good session beer. this damn thing was gone before i knew it.

mansquito (6067) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Got this in a winter mix-pack. Poured really pale gold with quickly dissipating white head. Got some earthy hop aroma, along with a little grass. Taste is pretty yeasty, bready and earthy on the first sip, but once you get used to the taste only the hop character remains apparent. Easy drinking, crisp and smooth beer. Definitely better to have this in your sampler pack than something like Cherrywheat.

12 oz bottle. I wasnt sure about this, primarily since Im not the biggest fan of pilsner beer, but I gave it a try anyway, and boy was I surprised. This beer was well balanced, had a wonderful hop character, and didnt just taste like watered down malts with a dusting of hops. Easily drinkable, and has a nice, crisp, clean finish.
