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

I can not believe that I never got around to rating this one. Every summer, it is my favorite beer- it is all I drink when I visit the saucer- just very refreshing with a ton of character.

Tasty and refreshing pilsner. Dry hoppy flavors stand well.

Bottle. Very carbonated - almost seems like champagne in appearance. Nice foamy head atop a light golden color. Yeasty and fruity smell. Leaves a slightly doughy aftertaste in the mouth. Enjoyable and easy to drink.

Excellent, underrated pils. Bready with herbal hops. Nice and hoppy for the style.

Pours a clear golden color with carbonation coming up from the bottom of the glass. A small 1/2 finger head that didn’t last. Smells of light malt and mild hops. The hops taste earthy - herbal and floral. Light pilsner body. Light malts. Slightly dry finish. An affordable and sessionable pilsner

A good summer beer as it is refreshing and clean, little or no after taste. A drinkable brew.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2005 Poured yellow and fizzy with a thin white head...smell was very faint (perhaps I had an old bottle), but what was there was a little skunky and faint soap...taste was much heavier malted than I’d thought...sour nasty finish...
Earlier Rating: 8/5/2004 Total Score: 3.4
Yellow with little head...a little lemony aroma...nothing too amazing here...definately crisp and refreshing though...

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - DEC 14, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2010 Bottles courtesy of kaggie97 and northernbrews. Pours golden/yellow, with decent white head. Decent aroma of, earthy/grassy hop, lemon, light pils malt, cereal. Flavor much the same, faint lemongrass, cereal, pils malt, well balanced. Could be a little more carbonated other than that, pretty solid offering.
