3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The pour is a nice golden color with a moderate white head on it.
S: Sweet malt and grain on the nose with a touch of butter and skunk. A light breadiness and not too much in the way of hops.
T: Somewhat bready and primarily sweet in terms of the flavor. The hops aren’t very pronounced, unfortunately, and there is not much to really cover up the butter and skunk.
M: Light to medium bodied, as one might expect from a a pilsner. The carbonation is medium as well.
D: Not nearly as bad as the Fancy Lawnmower, but not all that good either. I suppose if it was ice cold you might be able to put a few of these away.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Grassy hop aroma backed by sweet malt, pours golden yellow with a hint of amber, minimal white head. Light bodied, medium sweetness light-med bitterness, active carbonation make this a heat beater, but nothing more, disappointed in the Saint on this one.

Poured from bottle. Nose is yeasty and dank; there’s some serious wet plant action going on. Pours a clear yellow with minimal head. Has good hops bitterness and a slight citrus spritzy nature to it; finishes clean. A good session beer for Texas summer.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Good color, good clarity for a pils. Aroma a bit skunky and a little sweet. Palate is light and refreshing bringing out a nice malt pressence, that the skunkiness hides. Not bad, but not good.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Transparent golden yellow with very thin white head. Aroma dominated by grainy malt with a hint of hops. Bready, grainy malt on the palate. Decent, but far from my favorite Saint Arnold offering.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I couldn’t really get a good look at the pour in the dark lighting. Smells light and hoppy. A tad fruity. Tasty. A decent Pils. It’s light and crisp with a good hop bite. Goes down smooth and clean. Maybe just a tad fruity.
I could drink plenty of these. A real nice lawnmower beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with blutt59. Pours a mostly clear urine yellow with a fizzy white head that evaporated within the first two sips and left no lace. After several deep inhales, I have concluded that this beer is devoid of any aroma. After several sips of this beer, I have come to virtually the same conclusion about the flavor. There is some very weak corn and grain flavor up front and that’s about it. No hops bitterness at all. Thin watery body. Its beers like this that make me rethink my rating for beers like Coors Light. If this were a BMC product, its overall score would easily be in the 1’s.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy gold with a thick white head. Sweet grassy aromas. Lots of carbonation. Dry, spicy, floral hops flavor with some citrusy sourness. Crisp, with a slight bitterfinish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with light notes of honey. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of both straw and honey, leading to a dry and lightly bitter finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle courtesy of Cavie and poured into a footed pils glass. Pours fizzy clear pale yellow like a macro and smells about like one as well. Aroma is grainy malt, sweet corn, fruity apples, and a touch of hop. The flavor delivers decently, though, with big fresh pils malt flavor, a sweet middle, and a nice balancing dry finish. Mouthfeel is light and high carbonation so it goes down smoooooooth, baby.
