2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
This was a fairly good pilsner. Pours up a very clear, light yellow/amber body with a minimal fizzy head. Scents and flavors of malts and hops entice the senses. Just the right bitter kick on this smooth and easy drinking brew. Makes for a good session brew on a hot summer day.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from Mora2000, thanks Bill! Pours a crystal clear, hay-yellow colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is a mix of grass, hay, fruit, grainy cereals and pale malts, and a touch of honey-bread. Flavor is similar. A light fruit and crisp, clean pale malts with a touch of honey sweetness up front. A light hay, grass, and floral as this gets a bit grainy. Finishes dry with a light grassy bitterness, a light fruit, and a light cereal grain sweetness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a light body and moderate carbonation. Overall, not a bad pils. Easy drinking, clean, and crisp with a solid flavor. Light malt sweetness with a pleasant grassy, hay bitterness and touch of floral fruitiness. Nothing special, but not bad at all.

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.

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.
