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.

One of my local favorities. Great hops (maybe sazz), good color, nice grassey aroma, clean taste and incredible after taste. For a macro, one of the best.

kramer (6908) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is light floral hops with a bready pils malt base. The flavor is fairly light on the bitterness with a clean and fairly dry malt backbone. The hops are fresh and floral with a short finish. Pretty easy drinking and thirst quenching with a light body and soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty decent, bug not up with the best of PA pilsners available.

12 oz bottle poured, gifted by luttonm, and poured into my SA Noble Pils glass. Rarely do I get to drink a beer in it’s own glass at home. Clean and clear golden pour, with a thin oily head. A solid pils here, and one of the better offerings from these guys in recent memory. Very flavorful pilsener, with plenty of soft bready like malts, and cool, juicier hops. Clean and cool finish. Quite enjoyable.

luttonm (6863) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2017
Bottle in Seattle. From the mixed pack. White lingering head, quite clear gold. Grassy, earthy hop aroma. Warm, creamy malt backbone isn’t impressive or able to carry the hops very well. Honey, herbs and grassy hops in the flavor. A little coating sweet with a fair bittering finish. Not great.

Pretty darn tasty for a pilsner. Darker in color and a little more flavor than expected.

Pretty tasty stuff, nice balance of hop and malt, u kinda get the best of both worlds. Smells like west coast hops. Kinda juicy too

beertholomeus (1814) - California, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Pours a golden yellow color with a white head. Floral, hop, grass and biscuit aroma and flavors. Light body and average carbonation. Floral, grass and hop finish. Clean and flavorful, very nice.

brewdo (2) - ROCHESTER HILLS, Michigan, USA - FEB 3, 2017 does not count
Nice , Strohs like . Just a nice smooth pilsner with great body and a slight malt tickle! Love it.

gripweed57 (2921) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JAN 28, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Label says 4.9% ABV. Bright brassy gold color. Medium sized frothy white head. A fine looking beer. Aroma has notes of honey malt and citrusy hops. Flavor is sweet malt with honeyish notes. Midtaste brings grassy hops with a hint of lemongrass. Slightly tart, dry finish has peppery notes. Overall, a tasty Pils with complex flavor.

Rex_Remes (272) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - JAN 26, 2017
(12oz bottle) AROMA: I was expecting more here. english muffin, dough, some floral/perfume, touch of herbs/coriander, cloves, spice. fragrant laundry detergent (mostly in a good way). APPEARANCE: gold yellow, clear, a bit light with the head that quickly recedes to a some clinginess, ok carbonation. Can force a larger head with a hard pour. TASTE: good lager taste. Falls short of what I normally think of as a Czech Pils. Sweet corn up front. a little bit of smokiness and coffee in the middle, tobacco/toast, green, herbal, spicey/sharp. PALATE: light-medium in body, sharp, fresh, clean, decent lingering bitterness. OVERALL: This is actually a very good lager, but for some reason, I was expecting it to WOW me. Pretty good balance (in fact so balanced that nothing specific really standouts with respect to malt and flavor and hops), very drinkable, not too light, not too heavy, the more I drank the better it got.
