Samuel Adams Noble Pils brewed by Boston Beer Company, with an ABV of 4.90% This Pils pours out a nice golden amber color with a fluffy white head. There is also some nice lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass well. The smell of Noble Pils is rich with earthly hops , grains and malts. Tgere is a slight sweetness to the smell of this brew. Nothing to overpowering so far. The look and smell of this brew are really inviting. Now for the taste, it is bold with hops and a nice clean smooth ending. You pick up on some nice grins and malts in the taste as well. This is fine smooth drinking Pils, there is nothing overpowering about this brew. This brew goes down nice and smooth. The mouth feel of Samuel Adams Noble Pils is Bold, Clean, Smooth and Refreshing. I can't get over how smooth this brew goes down. This a good brew to reflect on your day with. If you are looking for a medium bodied brew look this one up. Overall I'm giving Samuel Adams Noble Pils a 4.50 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again. Boston Beer Company (Samuel Adams), did a super nice job with this one.

Plain tasting malt that's hardly noticeable behind the strong carbonation and pallette of noble hops. Thin bodied, drinks like bad mass produced German beer. The hops suggest a variety of fruit and natural flavors but none are able to shine through.

DATE: July 3, 2016... OCCASION: Game of Thrones Season Four on disc... waiting was worth it... GLASSWARE: Paulaner pokal... a handsome golden body bubbles like champagne, while the head is a thick, frothy and a near finger in depth--strikingly resilient... light herbal hints with pepper and spiciness, with the unmistakable Noble hop that elevates a pilsner.... the floral qualities are aromatic, alluring and honeyed... the body is a pleasant, medium-bodied sip that is balanced, comfortably moving through the mouth and throat... this beer's Noble hops boost the profile, with citrus-- lemon, lemongrass and light pine... as part of the Brewmaster Sampler, this is an excellent take on the style and rounds the experience into a more drinkable, more flavorful one than the average pilsner might have...
