Nice Pilsner.. Fresh taste.. a bit of hoppiness sneaks in. They're root beer is excellent, but the Summer Pils falls a bit short of an Excellent Pilsner.. It was a Beer of the Month Selection and based on the taste... Overall.. I'd Be more than happy to try other Sprecher entries... Definitely a beer I'd drink again.

Pours an ephemerally hazy, medium yellow with no discernible head at all.
Smell is dirt and and the inside of a gym shoe. Wow.
Taste is hops, dirt and whatever you get from licking a boot.
Almost medium bodied. Effervescence is sharp up front fading fast to medium. Drying and clean finish. This plain sucks. Pure drain pour.

Happened on this one by accident -- retailer had some left over that wasn't on the shelves a month ago.
A -- Chill-hazed pale gold with a terrific, dense, creamy, long-lasting white head. What points are lost with the chill haze are made up in such a classic, to-style head.
S -- Spicy, earthy hops with some mild breadiness back. There's a vague underlying diacetyl character that gives this beer a distinct Bohemain character.
T -- Spicy Saaz hops hit the palate first with some light citrus tang followed up by bready Pils malt and finishes spicy bitter at first then very clean and dry. There's the same mild diacetyl blending with spicy hops in the aftertaste.
M -- Mouthfeel is soft, nearly creamy, with a medium light to crisp body.
O -- Wow -- this is one great Czech Pils. The mix of spicy Saaz hops and Pilsner malt bready sweetness are near clones of fresh Pilsner Urquell. The only other micro Pils that I've ever thought as good was New Glarus' Bohemian Lager. A lesson in great lager brewing, I hope it's back next year.

Golden yellow in color with an amber hue and a heavy haze. Poured with with a big, bright white foam that reduced to a healthy cap. Nice sticky lacings on the glass. Sweet bready malt with lemon and orange zest. A hint of melted butter in there too. Medium bodied with a smooth feel below the tangy refreshing carbonation. Floral hop bitterness throughtout with bready malt and buttery notes beneath. Finished crisply with lingering floral and pine hop bitterness. This was much more hop forward than expected.

Pouring this beer into a glass is beautiful as the carbonation rises to the top with create the perfect head. The color is a semi-clear, golden yellow with a fluffy off-white head. The scent is mainly yeast and wheat giving it an overall pilsner scent but with a twist of citrus.
The taste is rather bold and daring. The wheat and hops are on the frontline as they attack your taste buds. Slowly there is a sweetness that grows in your mouth however it finishes with a dry, crisp after taste. The texture is smooth which delivers a decent overall volume to the beer.
I’ve had quite a few Sprecher beers in my time and I can’t ever say I have ever had a bad one. This Summer Pils is a complex lager that you don’t often see in a summer beer. It is just as refreshing as it is interesting. Perhaps what it lacks is that traditional pilsner taste, but then again they do advertise this as “Czech Style.” As with most Sprecher brews, you get a full 16 ounces to enjoy in every bottle which always a huge plus!
