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."

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 just don't get it. I don't enjoy a single thing about this beer and it's lauded as one of the best Sam Adams has to produce. Oh well.
