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."

12 oz brown bottle into a pilsner glass
best by Setp/Oct 2014

A: Clear golden with a small head in the cold glass. Not much retention but great lacing. Not much visible carbonation.

S: Pine. Little else. Maybe a little cardboard malt trace.

T: Similar to the smell but pine not as dominant. Sour bread present to counter the piney herbal hop taste. Flavors meld very nicely. Pretty good balance and distinctive good taste.

M: Fairly thick or so it seems for a pils. Just enough carbonation to dance around the tongue.
Sticky and chewy and substantial. Maybe not as "sessionable" as you'd expect from a pilsner but so what? Very good!

O: Really good pilsner from Sam & Co. There's stuff in there and quality stuff. One of the best I've had in the style. I drink this occasionally and will continue to purchase it.
