I was surprised when so many people seemed upset that Sam Adams Noble Pils was seemingly retired. Alpine Spring Lager is taking its place as the spring seasonal. As it turns out, yes Noble Pils is NOT the spring seasonal anymore, Pils has been promoted to year round status.
Noble Pils uses Bohemian floor malted barley and all 5 noble hops. It won in a landslide in the brewery’s 2009 Beer Lovers Choice Selection. This pilsner will return full time in Late February, 2012.
