Samuel Adams Noble Pils

Return to List

For the brewery's twist on this classic Czech style, Bohemian spring barley is used, as are all five Noble hop varieties. The resulting brew is remarkably balanced and refreshing yet certainly hop centric, with pronounced notes of orange slice, grapefruit peel and fresh pine needle that support the clean grain and cracker malt core. Medium carbonation keeps the mouthfeel fresh and vibrant, ending lightly dry and with just a kiss of hop astringency. This is a no-brainer for entertaining, as it's easy-pleasing but also will pair with a wide variety of foods. Lauren Buzzeo
