Thanks so much to tofuspeedstar for this and a few other St. Arnold/texas goodies!

A - super yellow, super clear, super white head, nice looking for a Pilsener

S - a sunny wheat smell to it with some slight malt sweetness, almost

T - subtle hop notes with a nice light malt sweetness and the grainy wheat/barley taste to it. Finishes clean with a bit tiny bitterness lingering.

O - An awesome summer beer, definitely sessionable and would be great to drink on a riding lawnmower on a hot summers day. Good stuff!

Thanks Chris for sharing this beer today!
Live review, served in a tulip glass.

Bright gold, high clarity, spotty ring of lacing on the surface. Jewel tone color, biscuity pils malt flavor, a hint of herbal hops too. Clean and crisp feel, nice dry finish. Simple but well put together, no off flavors to speak of.

A good pils that I could drink more of on a hot summer day.

Poured into a pint glass. Pours pale golden with a white head. There are plenty of streaming tiny bubbles visible rising from the bottom of the glass. There is some lacing left behind as the head dissipates. The beer smells of biscuit and cracker with some hops. The taste follows the nose. There is the grainy character from the pale malts that lends the biscuit character. The hops lend some subtle background citrus and bitter flavors. The body is light with plentiful carbonation. The finish is crisp and dry. The drinkability is very high. This is an excellent beer.
