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

One of my favorite summer styles, courtesy of Malt oMeal. Nice pour of clear gold with a frothy head. Aroma is slight, spicy and sweet. Flavor could have used a sharper hop note than is apparent here, with an almost kettle corn like sweetness keeping it from being the hot weather quaffer I love in a pils.

Clear look, golden yellow light color, and has a small white head. The smell is grains, corn, malts, and floral. The taste is light, corny, malts, and floral. Boring but not terrbile.

Pours a slightly cloudy hay color. Small white head. Citrus and grass flavors. This would be a good float down the river in 100 degree summer heat.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Pours a white head with legs and a clear straw colored body. Smells of corn and hops. Flavor is corn, sweet malt, little dirty. Finish has a slight hop bitterness.

ansermadide (1464) - Kyle, Texas, USA - JUL 12, 2009
On tap at Austin Saucer on July 11, 2009. Its super thin body and nearly clear, pils, lime-yellow, color is welcoming on a day with temps well above 100 degrees. Nice carbonation, but has a soapy aroma and a greenish pilsener flavor. Clean and fresh with citrus-like qualities. Best consumed at 36 degrees... need I say more?

Pours clear pale gold with a thin white head. Smells sweet and grainy. Thin weak grain taste with a bitter funk finish.

Botle. Yellow pour. LIght white head. Hoppy nose with caramel malt and some toothpick aroma. Flavor is crisp and clean, with lemony notes and some smooth hops.

I’ve had this beer plenty of times according to all the empty 6’ers I’ve been saving, but now it’s time for an honest review! 12 oz. bottle served in flute- poured transparent clean golden yellow, low-medium carbonation, thin whisps atop the liquid surface for a head. Aroma of grass and Czech hops. Hits the mouth with a thin body, malt is detectable and pleasant, middle holds up fine, finish has a very mild acidity from the hops and is very crisp. Clean, refreshing brew- perfect after some physical labor on a hotter than hell day and a BBQ with friends. Only 199,952 more empty 6 packs for the Bentley- woohoo!!!

Pours pale gold with a thin head that disappears pretty quickly. Lots or carbonation, bubbling throughout. Taste has a nice bitterness then goes down smooth. Great summer drinking.

Sampled with the guys courtesy of ScottyP from his trip to Austin. Clearish yellow pour. Corn, saaz, grass. Decent for style, with a slight lingering bitterness. Cool tye dye label.
