Served on tap into a nonic glass.
A- Poured a semi-c;lear bright hazy golden color with bright white frothy head that left minimal lacing.
S- Big grassy, grape, and bready notes. Smells like a really fresh pilsner.
T- Big grassy, grape, bready, floral, pilsner malt, and some spicy Saaz hop notes.
M- Prickly carbonation, very dry, and refreshing.
O- A very refreshing and complex pilsner.

12 oz bottle pours a mostly clear gold color with a frothy white head. Not a whole lot going on for retention and lace.
Nose is freshly crushed grains and herbal/floral hops. Low sweetness...fresh and crisp - just like a good pilsener.
Taste has biscuity, grainy malt that tastes really fresh and clean. The hops are a bit understated and could use a little boost, but has enough bitterness on the back to keep it in the dry realm. This is really good...might be the most simplistic of the ICON series, but also might be the tastiest too. Good stuff and a really good example of the style.

A finger of white head. Good retention an lace. Color is a clear gold.
Flavors: Classic German pils. Bready and biscuity malts. Earthy and grassy hops. Some spicy hops. Has a floral bite to it.
Mouthfeel: crisp and clean. Light bodied. Higher carbonation. Ends dry.
Overall, solid pils with a good drinability. Nice hop profile.

Good, quality Pilsner. Decent head and a nice floral and tangy aroma. Hops really stand out. Taste is more tangy with a slight bitter finish in opposition to the floral aroma. Finish is nice and clean and lingers for a decent moment. The Bohemian reference in the title is fitting.

I'm always ready and willing to jump on St. Arnold's latest Icon, but I was especially excited to see them taking on a Pilsner. A good Pilsner is hard to find, but their Summer Pils is my favorite.
Appearance - Snow white 1-2 finger head that stays with the beer the entire time, gradually reducing to about 1cm. Beautiful lacing.
Smell - Pretty much what you expect out of a Pilsner. Sour and slightly bitter.
Taste - Perfectly middle of the road. Slight bitterness and sourness with a sweet taste at the end. Very enjoyable, but not much to pull it away from the pack.
Mouthfeel - Mildly carbonated as expected.
Overall - I wanted to love this beer, I really did. While it is quite enjoyable, it doesn't separate itself from the back of other acceptable Pilsners. I'll be looking forward to the summer again more for the Summer Pils than ever hoping for this one to be brought back.
