Boston Beer Company
Sam Adams Noble Pils
Using all five of the Noble hops, this beer is sure to be a crisp and grassy refresher
The pour is full of effervescence, and a clean white foam bolts to the rim of the glass. Through the excellent clarity, steady streams of stocky bubbles make their way to the top and retain a quarter-inch of head.
The color is a gold to make Midas proud, clear and yellow with just the faintest hint towards a luster.
The nose has tart lemon followed by wet, mown grass, just as you’d expect., and a faint aroma of olive oil towards the back, too.
The mouthfeel is very good, initially providing some skim milk body, but with nice ebullient carbonation. Water crackers with honey, and parsley show up quickly, but disappear just as fast in a wave of grassy hops with just a touch of citrus.
Sam Adams has made a beautiful beer here, and this rivals just about any pilsner made in the US. . I believe this is taking over for their old spring seasonal, and I think it’s a fine replacement. Love the blue and green cap, too.
