COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true bohemian-style pilsner. Crisp and refreshing, this beer is perfect for a hot summer day. Saint Arnold Summer Pils has a delicate, sweet malt taste complemented by an abundant hop aroma and flavor. This beer is brewed with fine German malt, and a copious quantity of "noble" hops imported from the Czech Republic. Saint Arnold Summer Pils is best consumed at 36° Fahrenheit

26.11.06 12oz bottle thanks to Walt. Very pale straw color with small fading white head. Aromas are very mild, mostly malty, but with approachable noble hops. Seems that this one held up well since summer. Reminds at first of Bitburger, but then a strong sweetness kicks in and begins to overpower right through to the finish. It’s light enough that the sweet isn’t a big issue and the beer is still a tasty quaff. I like the label.

Thanks to LeopoldStoch for this one. Pours pale gold with 1-finger white head. Nice clean appearance that is appropriate for a pils. The aroma is pale malt, spicy black peppery lemongrassy hopcitrus. The flavor is pale malty, with a black pepper hoppiness and mid-palate citrus. Smooth, crisp palate that is on the light side. Still, this is a fine summer pils, one that I would gladly quaff any time.

Medium body in this traditional pilsner. Clear and light in color. The finish is a bit sour thought. (On tap)

12oz bottle via trade with 123456Green! - Thanks Louis! - Pours golden iwth a short white head that fades fast. Aromas of light grains, a little corn, and some faint hops. Flavor is grainy with a little bit of corn there. A little frosted flakes flavor as well. Finish is crisp and clean. Refreshing but not a top caliber pils

From Walt. Light golden brew with a layer of fine bubbles on top. A very refreshing brew. These lighter ABV brews are becoming my summer fav. Great brew after a hot summer run. Mildly hoppy but more bready yeast.

Very flavorful brew, but not really a flavor that I prefer. A fruity sweet beer that wuold be more suited to people transitioning from coors to good beers.

Pours yellow, with a white head. Aromas are hops and fruit. Flavors are hops and grain. Like others have said, it’s a little too sweet. Thanks to my secret santa for this one.

Another brew I brought back from Texas, and I got to enjoy it on a nice 90 degree day back here in Maine. Poured a golden amber with a fizzy white head. Aromas and flavors were both mostly that dreadful pils sweetness. It’s not a style I really seak out. I must say that the label is cool though. It was also quite refreshing.

12 oz bottle: poured yellow with a small white head. Hop aroma with light fruitiness. Flavor is quite nice and refreshing. Light hops and apple notes. Sweet. Maybe too sweet. I like a little more crispiness in my pilseners but I could drink this again.
