Pours a clear, gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of strong pale malt, hint of sweet malt, hint of hop, slight wheat, and slight yeast. Fits the style of a Czech Pilsner. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, slight wheat, hint of hop, and a hint of yeast. Overall, decent appearance, good aroma, and decent body.

This is the beer that helped me decide to learn more about beer. I bought a summer selection of Summit beers and liked this one better than the other three in the sampler. It is the first time a beer really struck me as, "Man this is good." After tasting this beer, I started asking my friends who either knew about or brewed their own beers to tell me the differences between the way different beers are brewed.

I may find other brewers and other beers that I enjoy more but this is the one that influenced me to learn more about beer. I have a loyalty to this style and this brewery.

I brew wine from scratch and from kits. I understand that brewing beer is different and more complicated. I am enjoying learning about both.
