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...

Enjoy by 11/18/13 printed on the bottle, poured into a pint glass

A: Bright, clear, golden color with very nice lacing and an attractive amount of carbonation. Very good looking pilsner!

S: Mostly all grains. Some faint hop smell in there as well. Smell isn't bad, but it does nothing to put it ahead of any other pilsner.

T: If you ever forget what biscuity tastes like, drink this beer. You taste a little bit of the hops in there. This beer finishes very clean and I could easily see myself having 5-6 of these without getting tired of them.

M: Light bodied as is typical for the style. Very dry finish, which I love. Pleasant lingering taste of biscuity grains.

O: This is a great session beer and I'd buy it again. Pilsner's aren't the sexiest style of beer but I very much liked drinking Summit's.
