look: 3.25 | smell: 1 | taste: 1.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 1.5

Pours an ephemerally hazy, medium yellow with no discernible head at all.
Smell is dirt and and the inside of a gym shoe. Wow.
Taste is hops, dirt and whatever you get from licking a boot.
Almost medium bodied. Effervescence is sharp up front fading fast to medium. Drying and clean finish. This plain sucks. Pure drain pour.

on tap at devils den in philly

Pours a clouded golden yellow color, with a crop of white head resting on top. Plenty of white lacing on the glass with some filmy legs.

Lemon peel and grassy notes in the nose, some soapy notes as well. Light hops with toasted grain and faint metallic hints.

Light bitterness up front with soft hops. Soapy and metallic throughout. Light toasted cracker notes with bready malts. Hints of citrus as well. Finishes a little dry and sticky.

Lighter medium body, higher carbonation, sticky and unfortunately lingering. This was pretty terrible to be honest, poor flavor, boring scent, and forgettable in nearly every way.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Poured from a 16 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma-Has a strong lemon/floral aroma. pretty inviting
Appearance- a murky golden color with a one inch white head
Taste- very bitter with a strong buttery flavor, not my cup of tea
Palate- medium bodied with an oily feel
Overall- I was disappointed with this beer. I expected more and it didn't deliver. I was really turned off by the butter flavor.

Poured into a pint glass from the bottle, this Pils was a yellow straw color. Producing a finger head, an Earthy aroma was apparent. The initial taste was a mildly sweet earthy flavor with a slightly bitter aftertaste. What was exceptional about this beer was the mouthfeel. A smooth, creamy texture coated the tongue nicely, making the flavor hold.

For a lot reasons, it is not easy to make an interesting pilsner. This brew was smooth and would be an easy drink on a hot summer day. It is certainly a better pilsner than the one produce a few miles south of Sprecher at a certain macrobrewery.

Nice Pilsner.. Fresh taste.. a bit of hoppiness sneaks in. They're root beer is excellent, but the Summer Pils falls a bit short of an Excellent Pilsner.. It was a Beer of the Month Selection and based on the taste... Overall.. I'd Be more than happy to try other Sprecher entries... Definitely a beer I'd drink again.

Golden yellow in color with an amber hue and a heavy haze. Poured with with a big, bright white foam that reduced to a healthy cap. Nice sticky lacings on the glass. Sweet bready malt with lemon and orange zest. A hint of melted butter in there too. Medium bodied with a smooth feel below the tangy refreshing carbonation. Floral hop bitterness throughtout with bready malt and buttery notes beneath. Finished crisply with lingering floral and pine hop bitterness. This was much more hop forward than expected.
