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: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Served from a 12oz bottle in my SABL glass at between fridge and cellar temperature.

A - Bright gold and clear as crystal, pushing up an inch-thick fluffy and active head. Craggy lacing sets up instantly as it recedes, and continues to leave its mark all the way down the glass. Head retention is good, but not stellar.

S - Citrusy, floral hoppiness; more on the dry side than the wet side. A light maltiness that's only mildly sweet. Fresh and alive.

T - Light, mildly toasted, biscuity malts, followed by a sweet, grain-laden floral kick. Finish is hoppy, but not altogether bitter -- a strange and interesting sensation when compared to other beers in the same class that are very forwardly hopped. This beer allows for a good schooling on the scent and subtle flavor aspect of Noble hops more so than their straight bittering properties.

M - Mild and slick on the drink, with a pleasant swell from properly tamed carbonation. Swallow is throat-coating and substantial if not just a touch gassy.

D - A delicious and decidedly laid-back take on a style dominated by much hoppier beers. While I would wish for a touch more bittering, the light flavor and bright character of this beer will no doubt woo many macro drinkers who are ready to try another beer that looks much like the ones they're used to, but with heaps more flavor. One of the best "bridge beers" I've found yet.

3.68/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Brilliantly clear golden with a foamy, thin layer of white head. Aroma is grainy and sweet, with a floral bent and a touch of earthy minerals. Malt sweetness seems dominant. Flavor is lemony and minerally upfront, finishing earthy and lightly bitter. There's a bit of malt sweetness at the backbone, finishing crackery and dry. Very easy drinking, approachable beer with a balanced malt and hop profile.
