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

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2009 Pours yellow/gold into the glass with a white head. Aroma is grainy and slightly corn-like. Flavor is crisp and refreshing with some bready malt and nice hop finish. Very easy to drink. Would buy again.

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.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of lb4lb. Clear yellow with a medium white head of rather short duration. Aroma of hay, bread, and light floral hops. No skunkiness or other aromas suggestive of oxidation, so this one seems to be pretty fresh. This has a nice light to medium body without wateriness, which seems to be a characteristic in lesser examples of this style. Lively, but not excessive carbonation, and a smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is a little on the sweet side, and this extends throughout the finish. I like to see a little more bitterness in a Pils, but this still has a pretty clean and refreshing finish. All in all, this is a nice Pils, very drinkable, and worth getting if you can get it fresh.

Bottle thanks to lb4lb, once again, thanks Deniz. Poured a thin, pale yellow color with a thick white head that stuck around for a while and left some decent lacing as it diminished. Aroma of pilsener malt, wheat, light citrus, and some light grassy hops. Crispy, citric entry with some moderate wheat and a lightly spicy pilsener malt presence and a nice floral hoppy finish. Crisp and easy drinking, would definitely be good on a hot summer day. This is probably underrated due to style.

paultheguru (644) - Parker, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2010
A: snifter. pale yellow color. solid white head. nice lacing and good to mild retention. S: some hay. some sweet breakfast corn malts. nice bittering hop aroma. T: Tastes like rich corn malts mostly. Better flavors than a macro lager, but pretty close to it. M: smooth and crisp. very mellow mouthfeel. carbonation was a little high. D: very drinkable and a very fine summer beer. not a huge fan of pilseners but this one is rather nice.

Nicely balanced refreshing thirst-quencher. Enjoyed while street shopping at 102F, this beer did it’s job well.

Pretty good looking, clear and tan with rising bubbles and a good white head that left some sheets of lacing. Aroma is a bit grainy, with some sweetness, a little citrus, a little corn. Flavor profile is pretty similar, but with a touch more corn. There’s not a lot of bitterness and not a lot of hops. The body is light and easy to drink, with the right amount of carbonation. Overall it’s refreshing and summery, a fine summer beer.

Pours a pale gold with a paper thin head. Aroma of biscuit, mild hops and malt. Taste is light and smooth, biscuit, slight hop bitterness and not much else. Light and simple but that makes for a solid pilsner!

snowtiger (106) - Brighton, Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2004
Brilliantly clear, pale/straw color with big white head. Aroma is of crisp malt and Saaz hops. Flavor is clean and crisp, if a bit dry. The malt does come through in the middle and the hops are present as well. Despite how this beer has been rated by others, I thought it was a good effort at a pilsner. Kind of a hopped up all-malt Budweiser.

TChrome (1417) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUN 24, 2004
Kinda yellow and fizzy looking though this does have a nicely retained egg white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with notes of hay and straw. There is a malt base in the background. Flavor is decent. Definite lemon, some light hop bitterness with just a dash of malt biscuit flavor in the background. Pretty tasty on a hot Texas summer day.
Earlier Rating: 8/2/2003 Total Score: 3.1
Pretty good pils. Light hop aroma. Flavor is mildly sweet and finishes lightly bitter. Appearance is yellow/fizzy. The is no head retention and no lacing. Pretty refreshing for hot Texas days.
