It is almost a philosophical discussion:
Who should decide how a particular style is supposed to taste?
Who’s going to be the guru on the hill who decides this?
Who makes the best car...or who makes the best pizza...or who makes the best of anything.
What is the standard?
The standard is that which everything is gaged by. The standard for beer in the homebrewing hobby is what? The BJCP Style Guidelines.
I'm not telling anyone anything they don't already know, but as many know beers are judged by beer judges and measured against the BJCP standards... and every beer judge has their own personal preferences and palates that are unique to one another. The beer judging process is very subjective. If you have ever competed you know what I'm talking about.
But I guess we have to have some standard by which we can all agree upon and by the way I do tend to agree with the BJCP standards for the most part. That being the case, the examples for a German Pils according to the BJCP style guidelines are:
Victory Prima Pils, Bitburger, Warsteiner, Trumer Pils, Old Dominion Tupper’s Hop Pocket Pils, König Pilsener, Jever Pils, Left Hand Polestar Pilsner, Holsten Pils, Spaten Pils, Brooklyn Pilsner
So if we are measuring SA Noble Pils against the standard... then the aforementioned examples are those by which it should be measured.
Personally I want to do a blind tasting to satisfy my own curiosity. However my opinion ...well you know what they say about opinions.
OK...now taste them for yourselves.
