Made with 5 Noble hops; Hallertau Mittelfrueh, Tettnang Tettnanger, Spalt Spalter, and Hersbrucker Hersbrucker (Germany) and Saaz (Czech Republic). Fun, and a nice departure from American hops.
Enjoy by June 2011. Hooray freshness dating! Something I feel will eventually need to be federally mandated, but I digress.
Pours a bright pale golden color with a creamy white head.
Nose is grassy, citric, slightly pungent with soft floral, herbal and mild soap aromas.
Crisp, prickly carbonation. Smoothes out with medium bodied. Quite hoppy. Bitter. Citric acid. Grassy bite. Mildly abrasive. Herbal and mineral notes linger. Overall, hops are restrained. This brew is nice and dry too. As for the malts, things are a bit bready, husky, and there's a subtle touch of fermented honey. Nothing complicated, just some balance. Bone dry, with a mineral and bready finish. Did I mention dry?
There's no question that Samuel Adams Noble Pils is one of Boston Beer Company's best beers to-date. A very enjoyable hop-centric Pils.
