3.21/5  rDev -9.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A - light, somewhat lackluster
S - light beer aroma.
T - standard pilsner. Serviceable.
M - clean...nothing exciting, but no complaints
O - at 4.5%, this is a good but not great session beer. I could have a few of these, but it wouldn't be the most exciting session.

2.83/5  rDev -20.1%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

A - golden with a fizzy white head, lots of carbonation, some yeast suspended also
S - sweet, vegetal, corn, biscuit, grass
T - overly sweet, corn, grass, faint herbalness, soapy
M - lighter bodied, higher carbonation makes it feel fuller, sharp semi-bitter, semi-dry finish
O - unimpressed with this Pilsener. I won't be buying this one again.

A - Pours a nice straw color, thin fizzy half a finger of white head, little lacing.
S - Grain, minerals, a little barley, some light hop presence.
T - Tastes like a pilsener, very faint on the hops, but light and crisp.
M - Light in feel, but very refreshing.
O - Good average pilsener, made for summer quenching.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Smell: Crisp and Clean. Very light beer aroma...

Taste: Clean but not crisp and no wow factor. A decent amount of bitterness.

Mouth-feel: Cool, carbonation light and airy on the taste buds.

Overall: An ok pilsner.. Pales in comparison to Pilsner Urquell, the original.

Keep trying Summit.. You've a nice beer.. Just not a great beer...
