Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: schellsbeer on 12-20-2009

"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."

Nice beer. Bit of a sour aftertaste, which might be expected but still makes the experience suffer. Slightly sweet, definitely can taste the citrus. Bright and fuzzy, with enough hops to make it intersting

Love Sam Adams. Full bodied and refreshing. Wish the ABV was higher but typical for a Pilsner.

Review bottle poured into my Whole Foods pint.

A: Clear straw with very little head and no lacing. Lots of bubbles. In line with standards.

S: Corn, sweet malts, other cereal grains. Again, the standards.

T: A very balanced pilsner. A nice mix between the grains and malts.

M: Crisp, fresh, and light.

A very solid pilsner, even if doesn't break new ground.

Was not picking up much citrus here. Mostly grassy/pine. Not bad but not what I was expecting.
