2/02/2010: Jesus H did Sam Adams put enough money into advertising this stuff? If you haven’t seen the commercial you either don’t watch TV, or you are a zombie. Its odd how some snobs will hate on Sam Adams, and I think its because they are the largest by volume craft brewer in the US. We all know everyone in the US loves to hate the person/company who is on top, but really they paved the way for all the other great breweries that have sprung up in the last couple decades. Oh sidenote: check out the picture of the poured beer in my picture, it made me realize my table isn’t even close to level hah.

Anyways for those who don’t know a pilsener is technically a type of lager, and is hugely popular in Eastern Europe. Tons of hop smell once you pour the Noble Pils. The taste is crisp with a lot of hops, but not super intense. Pale/Grassy type hops are the main flavor I am getting. A little too far on the bitter side of the scale for me to give this beer an A, but overall very good. Very light mouthfeel with a good amount of carbonation. Worth a shot if you are into pilseners.

Funny Picture of the day: Anyone ever wonder where apple got the idea for The iPad.
