This is my favorite beer from Saint Arnold. The brewery is about 25-30 mins from my house. But I dealt enjoy this beer on a hot day or on a relaxed night. Super smooth and the taste is great to me. Pilsners are my favorite kind of beer and this one is pretty good.

Very ordinary pils, summer or otherwise. Grainy and boring flavor with a little DMS, non-existent hops flavor. Could easily close my eyes and convince myself it was a Shiner. OK, that was too harsh because it's made well enough...just not very interesting.

Poured from the tie-dye six-pack can. Very drinkable and enjoyable, though not flavorful. Smooth, decent taste, could easily drink many. Good for a no-frills-pils.

On tap at the brewery. Amber gold with a lot of carbonation, smells of grains and pale malts and wheat. Grassy tasting, very low hop presence, and a lingering sweetness on the tongue. True to its style and I likes it.
