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."

A lively golden coloured pour into a large pilsner glass with a hop-spicy nose.
What a delicious beer this is. Citrus-floral-pine comes to mind. It states on the bottle that Sam Adams used "all five" noble hop varieties, which has me wondering, after Hallertau, Spalt, Saaz and Tettnanger, what is the fifth? Fuggle perhaps?
The use of bohemian malt keeps this absolutely true to its Czech origins.
A truly great recipe from Samuel Adams.

was stationed in germany, [uncle sam's flying circus.] many, many choices and styles. settled on pils. this is as close as it comes to the best if not the equal europe or the world has to offer in this style. crisp, hoppy, dry, and above all very drinkable. should be a year round brew. goes great with most any food or situation. brewed for klaus, willie and karl not for tom dick or harry. sams club has it for less than $21 per case. stock up!!! obty my tour was 66 -70 have gone through many cases since searching for an american equal. sam adams has found the equal.
