Some might call Saint Arnold's the Dogfish Head of Texas.
I can see that with the marketing but minus the swagger and daring.

Crisp but not quite the micro-bubble rub of Warsteiner.
Very refreshing, especially in the sauna that is a Texas summer.
This beer falls between a macro and Euro lager on all fronts.

I wouldn't go as far for serving suggestions like I suggested for the
"lawnmower" that it be served like revenge [cold], but I wouldn't
drink this one on the warm side either.

Nothing remarkable but it gets the job done and keeps your
money out of the macro's pockets.

Smell: Mild Malts, hops, and maybe banana.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth light to medium bodied. Taste of mild bitter hops and some grassy earthy notes.

Overall: This was an ok brew.

The Summer Pils poured a light straw color with a substantial head. It had a bright, light taste and body that helped beat the hot afternoon. There was enough flavor to keep things interesting and bold but without weighing itself down. While not being on the level of some of the top Pilsners in the world it is a solid Texas pilsner.
