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

no real affect on my palate and no real greatness to this one. add it up the category with the other mediocre beers that try to be passed off as somehow "different" yet all seem to have no redeeming taste value. I could have had almost any other cheap american beer and not really have told you any discerning thing as to what I was drinking

The beer pours a very clear light gold. The clarity of the beer is so perfect that I can hold the beer to the light and look up through the side of the glass and observe the fizzy white head dissipate from below. The head poured a vigorous thick white but didn’t hang out for the party as it disappeared very quickly. The beer has a very light nose; in fact it was so light that I almost got a nose full of brew as I leaned in for a better sniff. After I evacuated my nasal passages I was able to pick up on a light maltyness highlighted by sour citrus and sweet lemongrass notes. Upon first sip the carbonation of the beer dances off the tip of the tongue, the first taste is defined by a high carbonation with an underpinning of black pepper spiciness. The middle of the sip is a ghost, lacking any real flavors. As the last of the sip slides down the back of my tongue the hops show their floral little green heads. The hoppyness of the end of taste doesn’t hang around long but finishes the otherwise simple beer nicely. Overall I found this beer to be quite drinkable and refreshing.

One of the better offerings from this brewery. Pale, slightly bitter, fair head--but quickly diminishes. The finish is short, tastes of orange and lemon. Not bad, but not great.

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.

Pours bright yellow with a big, foamy white head. Aromas of bread, cider, and yeast with a subtle floral hop bouquet. Huge yeast flavor up front followed by a hop top note, only to be replaced by the yeast once again. Thin body and a long malty finish. I’d say this beer would benefit greatly from a quality dry-hopping and an increase of the boiling hops.

Simple and to the point. Easy drinking beach beer. More for the light beer drinkers but not bad to have around in the hot summer.

This year’s batch seemed to yield a quite hoppy version when compared to the past few Summer Pils offerings. I am not an avid or frequent pilsner consumer, but this desrves some attention for fans of the style. Start is sweet. The malt balance kicks in midway by taming the degree of hop bitterness to produce a smooth finish.

Actually called Summer Pils now. Malty flavor with good body. This beer has got to be experienced on tap. Out of the bottle drink it just above ice cold.

Not bad for a blandly flavored pils. A bit of a sweet finish, light aroma, light flavor. This is a lawnmower or "pass to your BMC buddies" beer. Pretty light, drinkable, but nothing exceptional.
