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

SirADNielsen (8949) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle @ Greg’s dump, pregaming Trailhead Tuesday. Pours a dark yellow appearance with a white head. Fairly spicy, herbal noble hops in the aroma along with a slightly mineral-like smell. Somewhat sweet flavor. Toasted grains. Herbal hops. A bit chalky. Light fruitiness. Not all that offensive but a bit sweet.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2005
12 oz bottle, thanks Legion242! Pale yellow beer, slightly hazy with a thin white head. Aroma is quite citrusy, lemon, spicy hops, a touch of diacetyl as well. Flavour shows nice malt/hop balance, moderate bitterness, and prominent spicy hops. The diacetyl is quite distracting though. Bready finish.

Theydon_Bois (7948) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2013
Tap at the Ginger Man, Heuston, 21/05/13. Clear pale blonde with a thin white head. Nose is grain, cereals, light citrus, pale malt. Taste comprises sugars, grass, lemon, pale malts. Medium bodied, fine carbonaiton, crisp finish. An adequate if uninspiring pils, refreshing on a hot Texan day!

BMan1113VR (7835) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 7, 2008
Pours with a largish, foamy white head covering a clear, hay colored body. Suprisingly good retention and lacing. Aroma is fruity and citrusy (grapefruit) with some hay. Slightly bitter, but mostly bland taste. Watery mouthfeel.

DocLock (7743) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2006
Thanks to LeopoldStoch for this one. Pours pale gold with 1-finger white head. Nice clean appearance that is appropriate for a pils. The aroma is pale malt, spicy black peppery lemongrassy hopcitrus. The flavor is pale malty, with a black pepper hoppiness and mid-palate citrus. Smooth, crisp palate that is on the light side. Still, this is a fine summer pils, one that I would gladly quaff any time.

a sim rate: (on tap at Flying Saucer in Houston, TX) Nice flavour. Almost fruity - malty. Smells a bit like sweaty fingers. Slightly soapy flavour. Nice sweet aftertaste.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Bottled. Poured hazy pale golden with a dense, sticky white head. The aroma picked up bread and honey sweetness, with accents of grass and lemon zest.. a little dank on the back of the nose.. not bad. The flavor found similar malts at the core, with honey leading.. dry and grainy on the edges, with dusty lemon and a touch of related sourness.. too much sugarage to really be refreshing.. just OK. Light-bodied, dry, and grainy on the palate, with prickly carbonation and other sourness on the edges.. decent feel and flow.

On tap. Poured a clear pale gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a good amount of grain and hay with a bit of an earth note and some sweetness coming in. Flavor was similar with lots of hay and earthy grains backed by a bit of sweetness. Lacked
