5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Bottle:   Pale straw, fairly clear, thin white head, sparce lacing, sparce carbonation.   Strong assertive grassiness and straw on the nose.   Sweet grassiness up front, strong hay/straw in a sweet sorta way.   More flavorful than most Pilsners.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Pretty hefty maltiness... me like!   Soft straw/hay lingers, not as sweet as the start tho.   This was fairly nice.   Not sure why you would want to drink it as cold as the suggested 36F tho given its pretty tasty.   Thanks for the bottle Bill!

This was a fairly good pilsner. Pours up a very clear, light yellow/amber body with a minimal fizzy head. Scents and flavors of malts and hops entice the senses. Just the right bitter kick on this smooth and easy drinking brew. Makes for a good session brew on a hot summer day.

12oz bottle from Mora2000, thanks Bill! Pours a crystal clear, hay-yellow colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is a mix of grass, hay, fruit, grainy cereals and pale malts, and a touch of honey-bread. Flavor is similar. A light fruit and crisp, clean pale malts with a touch of honey sweetness up front. A light hay, grass, and floral as this gets a bit grainy. Finishes dry with a light grassy bitterness, a light fruit, and a light cereal grain sweetness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a light body and moderate carbonation. Overall, not a bad pils. Easy drinking, clean, and crisp with a solid flavor. Light malt sweetness with a pleasant grassy, hay bitterness and touch of floral fruitiness. Nothing special, but not bad at all.

nogov (121) - Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2011
Bottle. Aroma is faint hops. Not much more other than slight hay. Pours light straw, with puffy lingering head. Taste is crisp and refreshing with nice hop counterbalance. All in all a good summer pilsner. Uncomplicated and not heavy.

Terminus (3663) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 8, 2011
tap at flying saucer in Dallas (lake) pours lite yellow with a small fizzy white head around the rim of the glass. nose of grains, lite spicy hops, cereal, and toasted bread. flavors are a bit more grassy than expected from the nose-very crisp, grainy flavors with a touch of lite noble hops. this one is pretty decent and very lite. could easily session this on this hot 104 degree Dallas day! perfect example of this very under-apreaciated style.

Bottle from Kroger. Light pour with a big white head. Aroma is soft and a little floral. Taste is kinda spicy, a little caramel, and carbonated. Nice finish.

Strykzone (7193) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. Clear honey gold. A smallish white head. Light carbonation. Honey flavor. Also, some decent grain and malt. Throw in a dash of earth. Not a bad beer.

deyholla (11036) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 29, 2011
On tap. Poured a clear pale gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a good amount of grain and hay with a bit of an earth note and some sweetness coming in. Flavor was similar with lots of hay and earthy grains backed by a bit of sweetness. Lacked

ttoadee (1414) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2011
Aroma hay, grassy hops, clear light gold color, quickly receding white head. Sweet, light malt taste. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. Nice malty finish with a snap of hops. Does not quite hit the mark as a pilsner (not quite enough hop character), but an enjoyable lager a step above the mass market stuff.

Saint Arnold Summer Pils has a very thin, white head and a slightly hazy, straw appearance. Some decent lacing is left behind. The aroma is a delightful bready malt, and the taste is a sugary, confectionery sweet, white bread flavor with a mildly bitter hop bite. The mouthfeel is light and watery, and Saint Arnold Summer Pils finishes crisp, clean, and refreshing. Overall, this is a delicious offering from the Saint Arnold Brewing Company.
