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, it’s a taste of the Bohemian life.

I like pilsener and IPA, and this one was really of my type. I tasted it at the brewery after touring, and I will definitely try this Summit beer as bottled products too.

Courtesy of Doran. Poured from the 12 oz bottle a gold color with a white head. Light lacing. Nose of grassy hops with a hint of citrus as well. Light in body. Flavor is light malts and a smooth lager mouth feel. Light bitter finish. Nice.

Really disappointed after I bought a case. Almost tasted skunky with a lot more hop flavor. Was looking for a smooth drinking light beer, but got something much different. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

When I think of pilsner beers I pretty much thing of the lightest and tasteless beer possible. It’s not an adventures beer by any means, but that does not make it bad. Good color and great for a time when you don’t want something heavy. I have it a lot with meals.

HIGHB4LL (656) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2014
12 oz bottle from the Cash Wise in Williston. Appearance: finger of white head, golden color, clear, light lacing. Aroma: biscuity malt, light floral, grass clippings, very faint fruit. Palate: light-but-not-so-light body, average carbonation, very subtle bitter at the end, thin texture. Taste: light watery fruit sweetness and malty sweetness, then the malty sweet takes over, but has subtle flourishes of bitter grassy hops towards the end. Overall, very well balanced and "full" feeling for the style, very refreshing, quite good!

Pale golden color. White head. Very nice aroma. Better than some pale ales. Not much hops, as expected. Easy drinking taste. Malts, with light hops present. This is a pleasant, well done pilsener, and is faithful to the style, but, personally, I prefer a stronger taste (which is why I don’t often buy pils). Refreshing to drink. Matches up well against the classic European pilseners. I recommend it to those who are looking for an American pilsener.

sawbuck (365) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Sweet bready aroma with some notes of spicy hops. Deep yellow color with a white head...fades quickly. Rich sweet malt up front. Off bitter, peppery hops fade in...mild,,,,but sweetness wins out. Finish has an off bitterness that does not mend well with sweetness. Medium mouth feel with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Average for the style....very drinkable.

Transfer from BA review on 8-24-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Poured a nice light golden color. The beer had a large thick white head with great retention but eventually fades to give a great level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is biggest of a bready malt with notes of yeast, pepper and some lightly sweetened lemon citrus. Taste – The taste begins mostly of a bready taste with some light lemon hop flavors. As the taste moves on the hop gets slightly stronger and the bready flavor becomes more “buttery” and takes on a more biscuit nature. In the end a light grassy flavor come to the tongue blending with the lemon to leave a lingering aftertaste.. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was of average thickness with a carbonation level that was also very average as well. Overall – It’s a pretty good Pilsener with a decent flavor, feel and look. Worth a try, but nothing to go out of your way for.
