Are you serious? A-? This is a joke...
Appearance - thin yellow water with a flimsy carbonated head that disappeared as fast as you can say 'Bobs your uncle!"
Smell - stale corona, or urine.. depending on the weather
Taste - Miller lite, but id rather have that for the pice
Mouthfeel - just plain horrible, theres nothing there
Drinkability - It was awful just like the rating I gave this beer, it was like carbonated water.. but its my fault because I didn't use that awesome glass in the commercial with the laser doop de doo line in the bottom that brings out all the secret hidden flavors in this bad beer.

I had this at a local Italian pizza shop.
This was very weak beer. The hops were barely there. It reminded me of Budweiser with a bitter blah-ness. It was just awful. I tried to like this beer. But Sam Adams is just putting names on stuff to make the beers sound like they may taste good. They failed here.
You want a good pilsner? Drink a Warsteiner.

I bought this after hearing my uncle rave about it. I won't be trusting his beer advice again.
I should first disclose that I have had very few Sam Adams beers that I had much liking for, nor have I ever been fond of pilsners, but I think I gave this a fair shake.
Pours a rather unimpressive yellow, with next to no head into a 19oz. pilsner glass. Aroma is very faint hops and a sort of chemically smell I sometimes find in beers I subsequently dislike.
The taste is initially sharply hoppy, though very one dimensionally so, followed by a weak, watery flavor not unlike, if I remember correctly, yellow macro brews. This is further followed by a nasty chemically aftertaste that doesn't appear to go away. There is not much else to say about it, other than that I have a tight beer budget, and $9 for a six pack of this is a big waste of it.

I am utterly shocked and perplexed by the beeradvocate.com score for this beer. I'm not a big Sam Adams fan, but I do really enjoy their hallertauer pilsener. That gave me hope for this brew. Alas, this beer is wretched.
Pours a light golden color. Big white foam head. I was perhaps expecting less yellow, more gold.
Smells like crisp, chemical laden bread, some cleaning solvents that perhaps double as noble-esque hops, and a weird mineral pungency.
Taste is really nasty. The yeast and chemical/solvent background make this utterly unpalatable. A pilsener, in my mind, should be "clean," crisp, offer some mineral zest with a sharp, tangy yeast/break background. This is just unpleasantly jumbled and ... I must throw that word out there again ... chemical flavored.
