A true bohemian-style pilsner. Crisp and refreshing, this beer is perfect for a hot summer day.

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

Cool label. A nice, easy drinking beer that balances the hops and malt a little too subtlely, but makes for a nice brew on a hot summer day. Flavors are sour and a bit tangy in the finish.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2006
12oz bottle via trade with 123456Green! - Thanks Louis! - Pours golden iwth a short white head that fades fast. Aromas of light grains, a little corn, and some faint hops. Flavor is grainy with a little bit of corn there. A little frosted flakes flavor as well. Finish is crisp and clean. Refreshing but not a top caliber pils

26.11.06 12oz bottle thanks to Walt. Very pale straw color with small fading white head. Aromas are very mild, mostly malty, but with approachable noble hops. Seems that this one held up well since summer. Reminds at first of Bitburger, but then a strong sweetness kicks in and begins to overpower right through to the finish. It’s light enough that the sweet isn’t a big issue and the beer is still a tasty quaff. I like the label.

Bottle. Hoppy aroma and flavor, somewhat skunky. Crisp, but not too great.

Pours a clear bubbly golden color with a small bubbly head that dissipated to a minimal wisp of head on top. No lacing of any sort. Bready malts, grain, and a hint of hops in the smell. Smells a bit like fresh cut grass. Taste is dominated by a light malt and grain flavor with only the slightest bit of hop kick in the finish. I did get a little bit of fruity sweetness in the taste. Fairly light mouthfeel with moderate corbonation. This is a decent micro pils, but I probably wouldn’t drink another one.

StefanSD (2352) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2008
12 oz bottle courtesy of zinister. Pours a translucent yellow gold color with a medium sudsy white head. The aroma is medium in strength with some odd amonia like barnyard funk. The flavor is spicy with thyme, white pepper and celery salt. The mouthfeel is light without being thin and watery. The finish is short and dry with a metallic aftertaste. Overall: The is a fairly ordinary pilsner; it ha sa nice spicy flavor, but I was a bit put off by the aroma and aftertaste.
