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."

4.15/5  rDev +10.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a standard pint glass.

A: Pale yellow straw color with minimal head but good lacing down the glass.

S: Mild with no sulfur odor that so many lagers seem to have. By the same token, I did not notice any strong hop aroma either. Just kind of a neutral "beer" smell that one of the other reviewers alluded to. Not a great smell but yet not anything memorable or objectionable either.

T: Very fresh taste. NO tinny or metallic taste that is characteristic of many BMC's. Also no sulfur taste. Just a fresh beer taste with a good punch of hops in the back of my throat. The first thing I thought of when I tasted this beer was...Is this the IPA of lagers? After finishing the first and second bottles, it's certainly not anywhere as assertively hopped as an IPA but relative to my previous exposure to Pils it does have a good dose of hops. I saw on the label that this beer uses all the varieties of noble hops. Kudos for that and bring on the hops!

M: Crisp and clean like most lagers but yet a bit thicker and creamier. I liked that aspect of the beer.

D: Great. One before dinner, one with dinner and one for desert and its Monday evening. I'll need a little self control to stay away from the rest of the sixer.
