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 dated 06-07-10) clear golden pour with a long lasting white frothy head. Noseof plastic, sugar, and sweet cereal grain. Taste of old stale grain, sweet cracker, wet cardboard, strangely there is alcohol too, butter and earthy. Apples linger on the palate, creamy body and watery.

Smells like sourdough bread. Pours a nice golden color with a small thin velvetty white head. Wow this is a hoppy ass pilsner. Super sour and crisp hoppy bite starts the flavor. This is "balanced" by some biscuity notes, but the hops dominate this beer fo sho. The finish is dry and crisp with a lemony sourness and residual bready malt sugar that hangs around after the beer is swallowed. A nice pils.

Bottle: Courtesy of bu11zeye via trade. Euro-lager and slight buttery aroma. Pours a transparentgold with a soapy white head that is instantly a ring. Sweet up front with some light buttery flavors. Finishes with the slightest hint of bitterness in the finish.

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.

Bottle extra in a trade. Pours a pale yellow body with a thin white head. Grainy and simple with a light grassy hoppiness. eh.

Recieved in a trade with Kevin. Slightly hazy gold body with a large white head. The aroma is raw carrots and celery. There is also a little bit of black pepper. The taste is bread with cooked carrots and some cooked celery. This also a has a tangy finish of apple core.

very pale yellow with a thin white head. no real scent just malts and esters. very malty spicy flavor that’s not too refreshing but there are a tiny bit of hops that shine thru in the end.

Ghastly can. Clear yellow beer. Smells like beer. Cereal flavor up front, decent bittering. Hops stick around. Decent, drinkable, nothing fancy. ABC Liquors, Betton.

Location: Draft at a California Pizza Kitchen, 8/7/13

Aroma: Clean pilsener malt nose with some grassy hop and some fruity notes
Appearance: It pours a clear gold with a lasting white head and some fairly heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is light sweet and light-medium bitter, with a nice, clean flavor
Palate: It has a crisp and clean, true to style feel, with average carbonation, and a dryish finish
Overall Impression: Quite a nice Pils actually. One of the more impressive St Arnold beers I’ve tried. After having a bunch of their other beers I’m glad I finally found one that is above average in its style.

Thanks to hopdog for the bottle. Pours a lightly hazy golden with a medium bubbly/creamy white head that left some lacing. Aroma of mixed citrus, some noble hop character, grassy, vegetables and some breast sweet malts. Flavor of noble hops, grassy, pepper, bready, but a little sweet for the style. Maybe I’m spoiled by having two of the finest American Craft Beer Pilsners so accessible to me (Prima and Pikeland), buy the Saint Arnold misses the mark a bit.
