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

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2010 Bottles courtesy of kaggie97 and northernbrews. Pours golden/yellow, with decent white head. Decent aroma of, earthy/grassy hop, lemon, light pils malt, cereal. Flavor much the same, faint lemongrass, cereal, pils malt, well balanced. Could be a little more carbonated other than that, pretty solid offering.

12 oz bottle, thanks Legion242! Pale yellow beer, slightly hazy with a thin white head. Aroma is quite citrusy, lemon, spicy hops, a touch of diacetyl as well. Flavour shows nice malt/hop balance, moderate bitterness, and prominent spicy hops. The diacetyl is quite distracting though. Bready finish.

Dorwart (2425) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2005
Large frothy bright white head. Light carbonation. Light crisp aroma with lemons and a bit of wheat and yeast. Little spices in there also. Color is a bright gold. Somewhat weak flavor with more wheat, yeast and spices. Little grassy and bready also. Finish is dsoft and creamy with a slight dryness. A decent pilsner. In fact better than most pilsners.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 16, 2005
In the bottle at the Huber Haus IPA beer tasting. A bonus beer from Bill Baburek! Gold in color with a white head that dies quickly. Fizziness is slight. Has decent lacing. A sweetness to the aroma. Not a bad beer. Has a good clean palate. Great finish of a malty tartness. Surprisingly good beer indeed.

BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2005
Spicy, doughy aroma. Bubbly, crystal clear golden body with a white head that quickly diminished. Moderately malty taste with a hop bite. Has a kind of tongue coating sweetness as well that I found enjoyable. Overall, this is a refreshing, tasty beer that I wouldnt mind drinking after a 100 degree day in Houston.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2005
Pours a brilliantly clear gold color and is topped by a frothy, almost white head. The aroma is spicy with grassy-herbal hop notes plus an underlying note of sweet grain. The taste is lightly sweet up front with a immediate hop character that flows through to the finish of this beer. The hop notes taste like a mix of lemon, herbs of various sorts, and a bit of grassy astringency too. This beer is quite light, and seems to be either missing the body/maltiness (for a Czech Pils), or the dry flintiness (of a German Pils) that would make this beer great. It is a little too sweet and thin, but is nice and quenching and certainly an easy quaffer.

Pailhead (5450) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Bottle: Courtesy of bu11zeye via trade. Euro-lager and slight buttery aroma. Pours a transparentgold with a soapy white head that is instantly a ring. Sweet up front with some light buttery flavors. Finishes with the slightest hint of bitterness in the finish.

Tejas (910) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 15, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2015 Crystal clear, light gold. Thin white head that dies quickly. Not much aroma. Light palate but perfectly OK for a summer pils. Sweet malt backbone that is too grainy and sweet for me to want again.
