UPDATED: JAN 22, 2007 Golden Yellow. A smooth hoppy beer, that really does work well in summers. Tried at the Harp in Houston.

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.

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
Overall Impression: 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.

Actually called Summer Pils now. Malty flavor with good body. This beer has got to be experienced on tap. Out of the bottle drink it just above ice cold.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2009 Pours yellow/gold into the glass with a white head. Aroma is grainy and slightly corn-like. Flavor is crisp and refreshing with some bready malt and nice hop finish. Very easy to drink. Would buy again.

Smells like sourdough bread. Pours a nice golden color with a small thin velvetty white head. Wow this is a hoppy ass pilsner. Super sour and crisp hoppy bite starts the flavor. This is "balanced" by some biscuity notes, but the hops dominate this beer fo sho. The finish is dry and crisp with a lemony sourness and residual bready malt sugar that hangs around after the beer is swallowed. A nice pils.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of lb4lb. Clear yellow with a medium white head of rather short duration. Aroma of hay, bread, and light floral hops. No skunkiness or other aromas suggestive of oxidation, so this one seems to be pretty fresh. This has a nice light to medium body without wateriness, which seems to be a characteristic in lesser examples of this style. Lively, but not excessive carbonation, and a smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is a little on the sweet side, and this extends throughout the finish. I like to see a little more bitterness in a Pils, but this still has a pretty clean and refreshing finish. All in all, this is a nice Pils, very drinkable, and worth getting if you can get it fresh.

Bottle thanks to lb4lb, once again, thanks Deniz. Poured a thin, pale yellow color with a thick white head that stuck around for a while and left some decent lacing as it diminished. Aroma of pilsener malt, wheat, light citrus, and some light grassy hops. Crispy, citric entry with some moderate wheat and a lightly spicy pilsener malt presence and a nice floral hoppy finish. Crisp and easy drinking, would definitely be good on a hot summer day. This is probably underrated due to style.

Nicely balanced refreshing thirst-quencher. Enjoyed while street shopping at 102F, this beer did it’s job well.

Pours a pale gold with a paper thin head. Aroma of biscuit, mild hops and malt. Taste is light and smooth, biscuit, slight hop bitterness and not much else. Light and simple but that makes for a solid pilsner!
