After seeing the television spots for Samuel Adams' Noble Pils, I decided to see if I could find a sixpack. I'm partial to lagers and pilsners, and I've enjoyed Sam Adams beers since the first bottles hit New England shelves as a regional microwbrew in the mid-1980's.
Noble Pils is crispy, dry, distinctly hoppy and very refreshing. I don't taste the "citrusy" aspect that they note in the advertising, which is just as well because I don't much care for that kind of stuff in my beer. It's being promoted as one of their seasonal brews, which means it will probably be out of the stores by March or so. I hope the Boston Brewing Company decides to bring it back next year.
