I had this side by side with Sam Adams Noble Pils to start off the 2010 Superbowl.

Appearance - A light, toasted corn color wore a frothy sea-like head that created a crawling lace within my Sam Perfect Pint glass. More lacing and lighter than Sam. Both are pretty.

Smell - A slight tang dances with the spices and herbs. An inviting aroma.

Mouthfeel - The mouthfeel is clean with a soft cream-like feel; creamier than Sam.

Taste - The hops start things off but then give way to the herbal qualities of the beer. An almost Wit-like back end to the taste.

Drinkability - The is a sessionable beer.

A solid pilsner. I can't deicide between this or the Sam. This goes a little to the white ale flavor side vs. Noble Pils so it depends on what you are craving.

Two finger off-white, soapy head, cloudy gold color body

Smells: Grassy, herbal, and hoppy

Tastes: Malty, boozy, grassy, grainy, bitter noble hops at the finish

Mouthfeel: thin, but not watery

Overall, I want to have this again, but on draught

This beer poured a golden straw color with a forthy tall white head. There is a sweet hop floral smell. The head lasts for a while with a nice bit left for the whole drink. It starts with a good bit of carbonation, that dies to a nice bubble from the bottom action. The taste is very clean. Its incredibly smooth with hints of hoppyness and a little sweetness. The hops come in more on the finish. It has a nice light to medium mouthfeel that is very smooth and pleasant. Very drinkable due to its crisp light yet flavorful body. Very good pilsner.
