There’s nothing terribly offensive about this pilsner, it’s just not as crisp, clean, or smooth as you’d like it to be. The graininess seems unrefined and the mouthfeel can be prickly. These things prevent Summerbrau from being a go-to choice for sweltering days. Still, it’s an okay pils with suitable hoppiness and overall flavor.

DiarmaidBHK (3161) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle from total wine Glendale. Pours pineapple yellow with a thin white head. Doesn’t leave much lacing but this beer does have abandonment issues so that’s no surprise. nice and fruity on the tongue. Finishes clean. Very drinkable.

ronaldtheriot (1099) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Wasatch Summerbrau has a thick, stark-white head, and a hazy, golden, bubbly appearance, with some lacing left behind. The aroma is of mild sweetness, bread, sugar, and lightly-roasted malts, and the flavor is of sweet, lemony, sugary, light malt, a bit of mild hops, and a touch of sourness. Mouthfeel is medium and soft, and Wasatch Summerbrau finishes dry, refreshing, and highly drinkable. Overall, this is a very good beer. RJT

Rated in 2010 (Backlog) - Gold in color with a small off-white head. aroma is of sweet and sour sauce and grain. Taste is of grain, light citrus and hops.

EdInSaltLake (517) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Herbal, sweet and grain malt aroma. Herbal, spicy flavor up front; finishing with sweet malt. Also some grainy malt flavor--but it’s kind of overpowered by sweetness. Maybe not enough bitterness to balance it?

BeerKurve (430) - - MAR 4, 2013
Pale Cloudy Orange Color. Initial smell gives off some floral hop, malt and yeast notes.. Taste has a strong wheat characteristic as well as sweet malts, hops and barley. Body is quite heavy and the carbonation is light. Decent Pilsener overall but it feels very "meh" for the most part

colinize (317) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Pours golden straw, not much of a head. Sweet malt aroma. Smooth and nicely hopped for a pils, which I like, but not much complexity to the nose or flavor.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Nice pils with just enough hops. Light color, decent carbonation, a good, slightly bitter finish.

madvike (2581) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle - Clear gold with a big foamy white head. Nose has sweet herbal hops with a honey malt base. Touch of spice on the hops. Body is sweet grain, honey, with a touch of sourness. Same herbal/light spice hopping that lasts through the finish. Bigger body than I expected, with some slickness. Well-carbonated. A bit on the sweet side, but better than I expected.
