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.

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.

Received in trade from TexIndy, thanks for the opportunity.
Wow this is the lightest colored beer that I’ve had in a while. Pours a clear light golden/straw color with a bubbly one finger white head that sticks around for a while. Smells of grass, apples, sweet malt, a bit grainy. Taste is grainy and grassy with a hint of fruit and a slight sulfur. Finishes dry with a lingering light fruitiness. Carbonation is crisp, body is light, mouthfeel is lightly syrupy. Very light refreshing beer. Reminds me of a macro, only better. I could see myself drinking many of these on a hot summer day.

The beer pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is grassy hops with some bready malt. The flavor is hoppy, but the bread/toffee malt make the beer very well balanced. There is some grassyness in the flavor from the hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A nice, easy drinking balanced pilsner. Nothing too exciting, but a good beer to drink the hot months.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden beer with minimal head. A bitter end with a fizzy of carbonation. Didn’t enjoy it that much.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden colored beer, lasting frothy white head. Aroma is very grainy with a small amount of hop spicyness coming through. Flavor is very buttery, almost like a buttered piece of bread. Not my bag but one I try to get my macro drinking friends and fam to try in a never ending attempt to convert them to craft beer.

12 oz. brown bottle. A clear golden beer with a small head that fades quickly. The aroma is peppery and lightly hoppy. The taste is grainy and it fizzles on your tongue. A boring beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: snifter. pale yellow color. solid white head. nice lacing and good to mild retention.
S: some hay. some sweet breakfast corn malts. nice bittering hop aroma.
T: Tastes like rich corn malts mostly. Better flavors than a macro lager, but pretty close to it.
M: smooth and crisp. very mellow mouthfeel. carbonation was a little high.
D: very drinkable and a very fine summer beer. not a huge fan of pilseners but this one is rather nice.
