Notes/Commercial Description:
"Samuel Adams® Noble Pils is brewed with all 5 Noble hops for a distinct hop character and fresh taste. Deep golden in color with a citrusy hop aroma, Samuel Adams Noble Pils is a traditional Bohemian Pilsner. The honeyed malt character from traditional Bohemian malt is balanced by delicate yet pronounced citrus, floral, and piney notes from the Noble hops. The winner of our 2009 Beer Lover's Choice® election, this beer was chosen by over 67,000 drinkers for its crisp complexity and refreshing taste."

I love the earthy, fresh hop garden smell of the beer. More than most other beers, it smells just like when I cut open a pack of hop pellets while homebrewing. The overall appearance is also stellar, with a beautifully clean golden color and a substantial, lasting head and my glass is still bubbling from the bottom. Because of the heaps of noble hops used in the boil and a substantial malt base, the mouthfeel is slightly fuller than expected. The flavor is also sort of surprising as it leaves an earthy, almost dirty (in a good way) flavor in your mouth instead of the crisp, dry feeling you often get from other American pilsners. This beer isn't too dry at all for the style, which makes it that much more appealing.

Although I speak highly of it's traits, and for the style, has impressed me much more than, say, Victory's Prima Pils or Stoudt's Pils, I am not blown away. But truthfully, there is no need to be blown away by a pilsner. What you want is balance and pleasantness.
