On-tap at Red Robin in Bethel Park, PA; poured into a 16-ounce shaker pint glass.
A: Clear bright yellow with a greenish tinge to it; some spotty white head and just a few spots of lacing, along with a few carbonation bubbles streaming through it.
S: Light grassy hops and a bit of indistinguishable sweet malts. Not a big fan of this smell; it's weak, but more importantly, it's not particularly enjoyable.
T: Taste packs a large punch both for the style and considering the weak smell; a dominant flavor of freshly cut grass, which is far more intense than I expected. So crisp it's hard to think that this kind of taste was produced by "fermentation." Sweet malts also show up once again; they're so light and sweet that they taste almost like corn, although I know this isn't the case.
M: Thin-bodied and well carbonated; crisp and dry.
D: I was not a big fan of the overly grassy and unbalanced flavor, which stopped this one from going down as quickly as it could have for the style.
Serving type: on-tap

Just poured into a pilsner glass. Head is beautiful with excellent sticky lacing. Love the sweet malts, piney smell, and great hop taste. Great idea with the 5 noble hops. You know you have good thing. Nose to glass is excellent. Beer has a very good presentation. Color, taste, and head make the beer very appetizing. Good price for such a high quality pilsner. i consistently keep a six pack of this in my fridge, keeps you coming back due to its quality. Slight bitterness, but very smooth, makes it very drinkable. This is another very good pilsner that is on the top shelf.

12oz bottle from the Hop Tour case – Imperial Nonic Pint glass
A: A mammoth cap of course white suds adorns the top of my glass staying for some time. Covers over a pale caramel amber body with very fine clarity. Leaves behind some broken runners of sticky lace upon each sip.
S: Spice hops dominate the nose with a good mix of grassy hops and grainy pilsner malt. Somewhat wheat like with a doughy bread and almost pretzel like quality. There is a touch of pine and citrus there as well with some earthy minerals. Nice and spicy hop forward nose.
T: Tastes of bread, spice, and florals with a nice upper level of hoppiness overall. Dry grass and peppery spices mix with some grainy bread moving towards a much dryer soda cracker like finish. Dash of citrus spice. No signs of alcohol come through in the flavor and there is a slight metallic tinge on the finish. More mineral like I guess. Otherwise this is a very nice and hoppy Pils with good balance to it.
M: Lightly filling to moderate low body with a nice peppery bitterness and creamy consistency to it. Finishes out a bit wet and watered down although there is a nice dry crisp snap there.
D: Tasty beer. A very refreshing Pils with a nice hop bite on it. One of the BBC’s better concoctions. A real noble effort I must say…hmm bwhahaha

served from bottle into pilsner glass. glear golden yellow appearance, lots of carbonation. white fluffy merengue type 3 finger head that laces the glass pretty well. the smell is grassy almost hay like. strong crackery notes from the pilsner malts and earthyness from the noble hops although the saaz hop note stands out most. the taste is big cracker bready taste up front follwed by just the right hop zing that you would expect in a great czech pils. carbonation washes the pallet well and leaves you wanting another sip. overall this a great offering from samuel adams. definatlly one of my favorites!...cheers!
