COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

12oz bottle poured into pint glass. Pours clear golden color with medium white head. Aromas pretty bland. Crisp and clean tasting.. Very slight bitterness. Flavor is also very clean with citrus hop, light spice, light clean crystal malt, a faint spice, and a lightly yeasty finish.

Pours a clear gold with a very long lasting head and lacing. Aroma is grassy. Taste is slightly bitter pine, grass, citrus, and a bit of bread. Crisp and refreshing, but not overly tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very beautiful label so a plus on the marketing side. Very pleasant earthy aroma that would be reminiscent of running through a wheat field as a child. Very smooth texture and a pleasant almost grassy aftertaste that dances around your tongue for roughly a minute. Nothing I would consider a life changer, but I wouldn't mind if I woke up with this beer in my bed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stampion (291) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 27, 2017
Crisp and clean. Not overwhelmingly hoppy or floral. I suppose that’s the “dignified” part of the description. Hops and malt balance. I get melon and biscuit rather than anything flowery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kramer (6991) - 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. 3/7/7/3/13

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 (6957) - 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.
