COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Authentic Saaz hops from the Czech Republic give our Pilsener just the right amount of spicy floral aroma. With a crisp, refreshing malt backbone and lightly spiced hops, itís a taste of the Bohemian life.

After a whole summer of drinking Pilsner Urquel, I was looking forward to trying this one. Summit is normally quite good. I found this very disappointing, the worst of the summit beers. It had the right aroma and color, but just didnít taste right. Bummer. PS: Since writing this, Iíve had a couple in bottles and they were quite good. I suspect I had some beer from a dirty tap. Not a huge surprise considering it was at a popular sports bar.

For Summit this stuff is not too bad. Much better than the pale ale, but if you are going to drink something from the Cities, try Grainbelt. Summitís got some issues.

Bottle. A very welcome addition to the Summit family of beers. A good representation of the style.

Iím not a big Pilsner fan, but I was somewhat disapointed with this anyways. Pilsners tend to be very blah and this suffers from Pilsner syndrome somewhat. I wouldnít recommend this one after trying a six pack.

one of the best summit varieties

TAR (2494) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - DEC 20, 2001
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2003 Saaz aroma, creamy head with some stick (in Urquell glass at least); some bitterness and malt aftertaste; finishing appetizingly dry.

Not really a boho pils, but a bit more robust than a north German pils. Maybe its an Export? Well made, light and refreshing. Smooth malt and moderate bitterness. Horace is doing a fine job making Summit into a Lager brewery.

A good well-crafted crisp pilsener. I was very pleasantly surprized by this one.

Tasty. Itís the closest American approximation to Pilsner Urquell.
