Ahh... Once again it is time for another Samuel Adams brew! I have begun to very much enjoy the offerings from Boston Beer Company, as they have not yet disappointed me! I had this on tap at Applebee's with my dad, and I didn't have a camera so I'm using a picture taken off the internet and the notes I jotted down on a napkin as I enjoyed this beer. This is Samuel Adams Noble Pils, a Czech Pilsener. It gets a B+ overall on BeerAdvocate and the Bros. also give it a B+. It gets a 4 out of 5 stars on The Beer In Me.
The waitress brought the beer out to me in the famous "Applebee's Brewtus" glass. It was a beautiful amber color with a moderate sized fluffy white head.
The smell is very easy on the nose: Crisp citrusy smell (a bit more lemon than orange) and a nice, light, floral aroma with the noble hops shining through.
The taste was fantastic: Sharp and grainy (not as in the texture but rather you could taste the grains) and very citrusy. Wonderful floral hop bitterness balances out the taste very well and paired quite nicely with my rueben sandwich.
Nice light-medium bodied, very refreshing, smooth and easy drinking pilsener.
