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.

Poured into a 3floyds tapered glass. Notch on label indicates best by January 2013.

A- Pours a slightly hazy gold color with a 1/4 inch white head that bears little retention time before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a crescent of surface foam. Sudsy, non-resilient lacing.

S- Vegetal hop aroma that's mild and also a bit piney and floral. Stiff graininess in the back.

T- Slightly bitter in the start, evens out mid-palate and then there's the lingering vegetal aftertaste that's common in Czech pilsners. This is quite enjoyable though, compared to ones that strictly use Saaz hops. Light, grainy malt presence.

M- Crisp and smooth with a light body and medium carbonation.

O- Extremely quaffable and accessible, although I guess that's what Boston Beer Co. does best. Still, I'm pleasantly surprised whenever they produce something more than just OK in my eyes.
