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

Bottle. Hoppy aroma and flavor, somewhat skunky. Crisp, but not too great.

johno (185) - Galveston, Texas, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Pale transparent gold with a rather spare white head. Aroma is a pleasant, if a little light, crisp floral hops, bready. Moderately bittersweet throughout, fruity, a bit more viscous than expected, soft, finish drawn out. Quite drinkable but nothing at all jumps out at you.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2009 Pours yellow/gold into the glass with a white head. Aroma is grainy and slightly corn-like. Flavor is crisp and refreshing with some bready malt and nice hop finish. Very easy to drink. Would buy again.

One of the better offerings from this brewery. Pale, slightly bitter, fair head--but quickly diminishes. The finish is short, tastes of orange and lemon. Not bad, but not great.

12 oz bottle. Pale straw with active carb. Thinning white head leaves sudsy lace. Banana-lemon and bread dough. Bit of pepper. Taste much the same with biting carb. Oily club soda. Light lingering lemon drying.

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.

DocLock (8570) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2006
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)

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2006
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
