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

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.

Bottle, many thanks to Radimd.
Golden orange color with minimal white head. Malty, yeasty aroma with notes of lemon. Taste, malt, grassy hops, lemon. Light bitterness in fruity finish. Refreshing beer.

Ughsmash (7508) - 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.

PorterPounder (7335) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2004
Pours a sparkling medium golden with thin but persistent white head. Aroma has a slight wort-like quality to it but not over apparent. Slightly dry flavor with hints of butter and yeast. Hints of honey make their way in there as well. Mouthfeel is fairly pleasant. Not a bad Pils.

onceblind (7325) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Clear bright light golden with a thin rocky white cap. Aroma is earthy grassy bitterness and crisp cracker lager malt. Nearly smells of methane. Crisp beautiful poppy blonde Pilsner malt flavor with a perfect amount of grassy noble hop flavor and drying bitterness. A bit on the earthy side but it finishes smooth and dry and more malty than not. Very classical forward and flawlessly made.

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.

Strykzone (6720) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. Clear honey gold. A smallish white head. Light carbonation. Honey flavor. Also, some decent grain and malt. Throw in a dash of earth. Not a bad beer.

5000 (6625) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Bottle:   Pale straw, fairly clear, thin white head, sparce lacing, sparce carbonation.   Strong assertive grassiness and straw on the nose.   Sweet grassiness up front, strong hay/straw in a sweet sorta way.   More flavorful than most Pilsners.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Pretty hefty maltiness... me like!   Soft straw/hay lingers, not as sweet as the start tho.   This was fairly nice.   Not sure why you would want to drink it as cold as the suggested 36F tho given its pretty tasty.   Thanks for the bottle Bill!

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 8, 2003
On tap: Straw hue with little head and no lacing. After a deep inhale, detected a very light nose of german hops, toasted malts, flowers, and hint of wheat. Mild hoppy bitterness and malt sweetness taste, finish is clean. Thin and watery mouthfeel. Not much here. Well it's somewhat refreshing for a 1st beer after a 103 degree day in Houston.
