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.

Pours a clear, straw-to-gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of pale malt, wheat, hint of sweet malt, and hint of citrus. Fits the style of a German Pilsner. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of hops, and a hint of wheat. Overall, good feel, decent appearance, and good blend. Lacking in body and aroma, though.

Poured from a cold bottle to a beer mug

This was the second beer style I drink from Saint Arnolds and beer by beer I am becoming a fun of this brewery.

It is a light beer that pours a nice light color and small white head. It formed some nice carbonation on the glass.

The aroma is of citrusy-like notes. It has a refreshing beer smell.

The taste follows with citrusy and grassy notes, very light malts, and a very clean and light bitter finish. As the name states it, it is a very drinkable summer beer. Refreshing is the first word I think about when talking about this beer.

Overall great summer beer; especially when extremely cold. I have also drunk this from a bottle and my opinion of it did not change. Good Texas beer and that is not just because I am from Houston.

This is what I would call an "American Pils". It's a standard golden color. Pour it vertically if you want any amount of head on it, because it'll be gone in a couple minutes. It otherwise maintains its carbonation throughout. There's very little scent from this. The taste is light and crisp, similar to an American lager. It's just bitter enough to leave a small bit of aftertaste. My personal preference is a pils with big hops. This is on the other end of the spectrum, and you'll want to hammer it down lest it get warm. It's probably worth a putting a six pack on the fridge this summer to see if you like it. I'll be moving on to a good Kolsch or a hoppier Pils, tho' I might just pick up another six of SA Summer Pils.
