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

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.

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.

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.

Thanks to maltomeal for this one. Pours a beautifully carbonated pale yellow with a two finger creamy white head. The nose is sweet and malty, grassy, hay, . The flavor is a tad sweet, malty, grassy, no alcohol, very drinkable and refreshing. Easy on the mouth with a cleansing carbonation. Finishes very abrupt and has the slightest waxy low AA hop feel at the end.

Bottle from Mar. Thanks! Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma has some grassy hops, sweet pale malts, and a bit of funk or skunk. Flavor is initially sweet and then some grassy hops show themselves. Finish is crisp and pilsener-like. Pretty good summer swill.
