Pours hazy golden-straw color with a good fizzy white head that doesn't last long, not much lacing, light grassy and flowery aromas. Bready and grainy mild sweetness turns hoppy and bitter with some dryness in the finish. Light bodied with a soft but crisp carbonated mouthfeel, very clean and crisp, very nice.

I am always a fan of nice, golden German Pilsner and this beer is exactly that. Nice dryness to it and low ABV that I would expect. Nice balance between the honey sweetness and a touch of bitterness. Perfect to drink in the bar with some friends or by the fire in your home during the winter cold. Samuel Adams always had a great seasonal selection and this is yet another example.

Gold with one finger white head. The nose is lightly spicy hops with lemon, pine, earth, floral, and crackery malt in the back, and a little yeasty flavor. The flavor is pretty earth-forward with a decent amount of pine and pepper. Has a strong certain dryness that melds with the moderate bitterness yet is contrasted by a light honey sweetness. Medium bodied, medium carbonation.

Clear gold orange color .just under medium body with about average carbonation. Body suits the style well
Aroma is floral earthy hops, perfect amount of malt.grain,cracker, yeast and what seems like just a bit if spice
Taste is crisp, nice hop bite and very subtle malt sweetness.
I'm not usually a fan of Sam Adam's offerings but this was an impressive attempt at the style

Nobility beware! Is this a step above rolling rock, it sure is! It seems that the hops are more pronounced on the nose of this beer. It has a lot character and a lot of balance between flavors. Reminds me of a hoppy pilsner that has stayed the course of freshness and stays crisp.

Moderate biscuit and subtle bread-like malt flavors. Low noble hops flavors that are much in the background. Slightly sticky mouth-coating finish that is more malt than hops. The citrus hops add an unexpected complexity.
