Picked up as part of a mixed 12 pack for $14.99. Best before April 2018.

Beer poured golden with a nice white head with the original pour.

Nose is malty, nothing too exciting.

Taste is well balanced between the pilsner malt and noble German hops.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and refreshing.

Overall an enjoyable brew, glad I got to try.

Best before June 2018
Pale gold/straw with a 1/4" head that falls and retains as a cap. Some lace left behind.
Floral and leafy, like a wet pile of leaves. Unique aromas.
Leafy aroma comes across a little like tobacco. Some spiciness over a light pilsner body.
Fairly complex in aroma and flavor. Not as crisp as it should be.
Unique Pilsner, different than expected.

Crystal-clear, light gold body; thick, sudsy head. Sweet, crystal malt aroma; sweet grass scent; pungent with a very light citrus undertone. A fine base of light cereal grain flavor with a strong hop bitterness presence from start to end. Medium-light body; crisp and clean; gently warm on the palate; mostly dry finish.

This beer nails the classic pilsner qualities of gentle malt base and prominent yet balanced hop bitterness.

While not having a whole lot of experience with Pilsners, I enjoyed Sam Adams Noble Pils. The light amber was pleasing to the eye, even though the head falls somewhat quickly. At first the hoppy flavors seem to rise and then flatten out, making it seem that there is something missing; this however, ended after several drinks and the flavors started opening up. Overall, I would recommend this beer to people who enjoy hoppy flavors.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle.
Look - lemon golden with a small frothy head and a lot of carbonation. Nothing special from the looks alone.
Smell - clean, aromatic hops with malts in the background. a hint of sweetness.
Taste - pleasantly hopped with floral tones, clean and smooth finish. Quite nice.
Feel - light bodied, highly carbonated, and low on ABV.
Overall - a bit more than what meets the eye, the beer is an excellent example of a Bohemian pilsner and has a nice balanced flavor profile that is likable by many

Surprisingly good beer. I didn’t think I would like a “floral” beer, especially from the smell but it’s pretty damn tasty.
