3/5  rDev -15.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Starts out pretty well - appearance is a clear golden hue, solid foamy white head, and good retention. Things go downhill from there. Smells like it will be pretty sweet, with a heavy yeast presence, and dull earthy hops.

Flavor is pretty similar to the smell. Heavy, sweet, and malty, with too much yeast influence and not enough hop contribution. Comes off pretty one dimensional without balance. Finish is grainy with a bit of alcohol.

Body is decent, but carbonation is dull. Needs more of a pilsener bite and effervescence. Neither dry nor crisp.

By far, Summit's weakest beer. Not terrible, but not all that enjoyable nor is it a very good representation of the style.

Poured into a pint glass.
Cloudy yellow. Lots of lacing.
Smells like malt and grass.
Tastes like a typical pilsner, very smooth. Hop bite at the end.
I like this beer but it's nothing to write home about. The Summit sampler is a bargain at 14.50 however.
Would have again.
