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."

3.58/5  rDev -5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle poured into pilsener glass

A: awesome head for a pilesner. not bad lacing. carbonation throughout the column. color = gold. maybe a hint of amber, just a bit darker than what we grow up thinking of as "beer" in the U.S. I'd prefer a lighter yellow in a pilsener (because I'm dumb maybe?) but gosh is it pretty to look at.

S: light, hint of something (barley? grain? hops?) hint of sweetness, too.

T: really good hop bite up front ... plenty of carbonation. VERY drinkable. no adjunct taste whatsoever (obviously). only downer here is a slight metallic taste, maybe soapy? not good, but it's so slight that it's not ruining the overall presentation. gets a slight sweetness as you get halfway through the 12 ounces.

O: not bad, nothing to hold a parade over. but BRAVO! to Sam Adams for trying to make us all a true Czech Pilsener. I hope they keep making it. I'm going to find a much better version of this style, I'm sure, but I must say I love the fact that the Boston Beer Company is making the Noble Pils.
