Finally found a six pack of Noble Pils. Very disappointed! Absolute junk. Then I noticed the best if consumed before May notch. Bummer. I was really looking forward to drinking this beer. It tasted like Bud Dry.
Sympathy. Pilsner has to be Fresh, Fresh, Fresh! or it's no good. Try it again next year, or look for 6-packs which have been kept under continuous refrigeration and cross your fingers.
We've got good access to SA products in our area, even so, I've had Noble Pils that tasted just like you described. When it's fresh, though, it's an instant classic.
