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

Ungstrup (29287) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2009
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.

yngwie (13558) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2008
Bottle. Clear, pale golden body with a white head. Cellarish, plastic-like aroma with pale malt. Pale malt, some fruits and hops, and a little note of plastic in the flavor. Thin body and not much bitterness. I was hoping for a crisper, hoppier and more pronounced beer. Disappointing. As I’m so much against the grain, it would be lovely to have another. (080822)

bhensonb (11066) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Bottle from ericandersnavy. Thanks man! Light gold color with a frothy white head. Aromas of grain and grass. Near medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is lots of grass over pale malt. Crisp. Tasty. Better than most pilsners. Let alone pilseners. Not a German thing. Bohemian. Really good, considering it’s a lager!

brokensail (10917) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 25, 2010
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.
