3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Aroma is faint hops. Not much more other than slight hay. Pours light straw, with puffy lingering head. Taste is crisp and refreshing with nice hop counterbalance. All in all a good summer pilsner. Uncomplicated and not heavy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
tap at flying saucer in Dallas (lake) pours lite yellow with a small fizzy white head around the rim of the glass. nose of grains, lite spicy hops, cereal, and toasted bread. flavors are a bit more grassy than expected from the nose-very crisp, grainy flavors with a touch of lite noble hops. this one is pretty decent and very lite. could easily session this on this hot 104 degree Dallas day! perfect example of this very under-apreaciated style.

Bottle from Kroger. Light pour with a big white head. Aroma is soft and a little floral. Taste is kinda spicy, a little caramel, and carbonated. Nice finish.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. Clear honey gold. A smallish white head. Light carbonation. Honey flavor. Also, some decent grain and malt. Throw in a dash of earth. Not a bad beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap. Poured a clear pale gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a good amount of grain and hay with a bit of an earth note and some sweetness coming in. Flavor was similar with lots of hay and earthy grains backed by a bit of sweetness. Lacked

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma hay, grassy hops, clear light gold color, quickly receding white head. Sweet, light malt taste. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. Nice malty finish with a snap of hops. Does not quite hit the mark as a pilsner (not quite enough hop character), but an enjoyable lager a step above the mass market stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Saint Arnold Summer Pils has a very thin, white head and a slightly hazy, straw appearance. Some decent lacing is left behind. The aroma is a delightful bready malt, and the taste is a sugary, confectionery sweet, white bread flavor with a mildly bitter hop bite. The mouthfeel is light and watery, and Saint Arnold Summer Pils finishes crisp, clean, and refreshing. Overall, this is a delicious offering from the Saint Arnold Brewing Company.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2011 Pours extremely pale yellow with a small white head. Grassy aroma, flavor adds more fruit and floral notes. Quite full-bodied and dry on the tongue.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured out of the bottle a pale straw color. Aroma smelled of grass and floral. Taste was light with barely detectable bitterness and went down really easy and smooth. Overall not a bad beer, just nothing to write home about.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 12 oz - This is a true tasting pilsner with a little more mouthfill then the regular stuff. They certainly used Czech Saaz noble hops and plenty of it without being over hoppy or bittery. Slightly dry bittering on the back of the toung. Out of all the S.A. brews, this is the best one coming out of the bottle ....but I still in favor of the amber ale out of the tap.
