Profile: While the chill of winter is still all around, Noble Pils, the new spring seasonal from Samuel Adams, holds the promise of brighter days ahead. Last year, the European-style pilsner won the hearts of voters in the 5th annual Samuel Adams “Beer Lover’s Choice” awards. Brewed with four “Noble hops” from Germany and one from the Czech Republic, including Hallertauer Mittelfrüh and Saaz, it features a crisp bitterness and floral aroma, balanced by a sweet kiss of Bohemian pilsner malt.
Pair with: Pair this clean lager’s bright bitterness and floral aromatics with bright, spicy Asian and Latin or South American dishes. It’s also a good match for many varieties seafood, especially shellfish. Try it with a shrimp or oyster Po Boy or a lobster roll.
