The Boston Beer Company makes Samuel Adams Noble Pils. This beer is a spring seasonal release and is a Bohemian Pilsner. Five varieties of Noble hops are used , but this isn’t a “hoppy” beer such as most India Pale Ales (IPAs). It is easily found in stores and has less than 6% ABV. This makes it a good session beer. The company recommends pairing this beer with a variety of foods including nachos, guacamole, smoked salmon, Indian dishes and lasagna.
The beer cost $7.99 for a six pack at the Brookings Liquor Store. It pours out clear gold into a pint glass. There is a one finger white head. It has a light citrus/floral hop aroma and taste. The hops and malt are nicely balanced. It is a nice easy drinking beer. It is my recommendation for the Superbowl because of the good taste, good food pairing ability and relatively low alcohol content.
