Beer 86/365 – Sam Adams Noble Pils

Style: German Pilsener

Purchased at: GIANT FREAKIN IGGLE… Still can’t believe they are selling beer.

What makes this beer different: Grassy

Will I be drinking this again: I bought a 6 pack so yes..

Grade: B+

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.

    Nice. I’m a fan of egalitarian beer geek-ism. Enjoying the blog. Interested in a beer trade from Japan?

    • Thanks!

      Not sure how a beer trade from Japan would work? I have only done a few from state to state, but would totally be up for some intercontinental if I knew how.

      • We could keep it simple. Just pick out 3-4 local beers, set a price limit (maybe $25), put them in a box and ship them. I haven’t had problems shipping sake in the past, so beer should be fine.

        There are some really good Japanese craft beers, so if you’re not interested in a trade, I could send you some anyway just to get some Japanese representation in your journey – shoot me your address.

        • Sounds good I just sent you off an email.
