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."

Nice head and lacing. This beer has a nice malty flavor and lacks a little of the hops I wanted. Overall a touch of citrus and a well balanced flavor. Another nice beer from Sam Adams, you cant go wrong with anything they brew !!!Not as good as the Hopology series but right up there, though

12 oz. bottle poured into a pilsner glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear straw color with a pillowy white head and some nice carbonation. Classic pilsner appearance.

Aroma: Smells of grain, mild hops, a little citrus, and toasted bread.

Taste: This beer has a nice, dry pilsner taste. It's sessionable and easy, as it should be. Nice and dry with some appealing hop bite and citrus notes.

Mouthfeel: It's smooth and light, but has good depth for the style.

Overall: Really nice pilsner from Sam Adams. Very quaffable and refreshing while also having some nice hop and citrus flavors. One of the better domestic European-style pilsners I've had, and one of my favorite Sam Adams offerings.
