UPDATED: OCT 11, 2005 Poured yellow and fizzy with a thin white head...smell was very faint (perhaps I had an old bottle), but what was there was a little skunky and faint soap...taste was much heavier malted than I’d thought...sour nasty finish...Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - DEC 14, 2005
Earlier Rating: 8/5/2004 Total Score: 3.4
Yellow with little head...a little lemony aroma...nothing too amazing here...definately crisp and refreshing though...
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2010 Bottles courtesy of kaggie97 and northernbrews. Pours golden/yellow, with decent white head. Decent aroma of, earthy/grassy hop, lemon, light pils malt, cereal. Flavor much the same, faint lemongrass, cereal, pils malt, well balanced. Could be a little more carbonated other than that, pretty solid offering.

TB, Text Book-Tim Burgess-same thing. Pours creamy yellow with a tall lasting head. Good lacing with aromas of barnyard hops. Medium nectar with good residual carbonation. Malty sweetness balanced by fresh grassy hops. Goes down like cold milk after a plate of the finest Mexican food. The finish lingers with citrus rind. A rather nice specimen worthy of a better score.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pilsner glass it formed a thick white head that deflated leaving little lacing. color is pale, typical of a pilsner. aroma is grassy and mild. It has a slight bite and is mildly bitter and dry. Nothing overpowers the flavor but nothing excels. ronaldtheriot (1934) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JUL 8, 2011
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.

12oz bottle served in Spiegelau Pilsner Glass. The aroma is delicate, spicy and herbal with a cracker-like malt backing. A seemingly clean fermentation. Straw colored, brilliant clarity, smallish bone white colored head that dies down after a minute or two. Sweet bready and cracker malt balanced with a delicate spicy and floral hop character. The balanced character persists into the finish, although there is a touch too much residual sweetness. This is so much more balanced and approachable than the Hans Pils I had before(German Pils vs. BoPils) and this was the beer I preferred while lounging in the pool under the hot Texas sun. This is a nice BoPils. Rating to style. bleeng (1682) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Label says Summer Pils-this is a high density pils the way it should be made. Heavy malts and flavor that goes down well on a typical 95F Texas summer day. Well done. stison42 (318) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2007 Golden Yellow. A smooth hoppy beer, that really does work well in summers. Tried at the Harp in Houston. ghawener (1607) - Santa Tecla, EL SALVADOR - JAN 6, 2013
Draft: golden / yellow, little to no carbonation, lacking any head. Aroma is herbal, sweet, malty. Taste lacks hops but still a nice brew. Food Pairing: Calamari. ben4321 (6506) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Location: Draft at a California Pizza Kitchen, 8/7/13
Aroma: Clean pilsener malt nose with some grassy hop and some fruity notes
Appearance: It pours a clear gold with a lasting white head and some fairly heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is light sweet and light-medium bitter, with a nice, clean flavor
Palate: It has a crisp and clean, true to style feel, with average carbonation, and a dryish finish
Quite a nice Pils actually. One of the more impressive St Arnold beers I’ve tried. After having a bunch of their other beers I’m glad I finally found one that is above average in its style.
