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.

Pours a light clear golden color with a thin layer of white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy but mostly bready yeast. Flavor again is slightly hoppy but mostly just a doughy yeast flavor. Not very good in my opinion, but then again I have never really found a pilsner that I have really liked.

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

gripweed57 (2113) - 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 (200) - 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.

euniceradio (524) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - JAN 26, 2017
12oz bottle to tulip. Pours clear gold with white sticky head. Aroma of lemongrass, light pine, citrus blossom, floral, slightly metallic, green tea. Taste of same with light peppering. Some honey per style. Not so much cracker. Malt is perceived heavier than style but cant put my finger on the bready profile.

Nice beer but that's about all. Step up from a light beer with the floral aroma and taste though ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
