Saint Arnold Summer Pils ....

It's definitely summer here in Texas.  So time for a Summer Pils from Saint Arnold Brewing Company.  Twelve ounce bottle.  The web site shows 4.9% ABV and 41 IBUs.  This is a seasonal, available May through August.

Poured with a thin, white head.  Beer color is a pale to medium yellow.  The aroma is very mild, almost nonexistent; touches of citrus, grain, grass.  The taste is better than the aroma.  Has some nice strength for a summer pilsner.  Fair amount of malt and a nice mouth feel.  Grain and grass.  Seems to be just a hint of spice in the background.  Very little aftertaste.  Not complicated, but very refreshing.  I enjoyed this more than I do most pilsners.
