Summit Brewing Company
Summit Brewing Company Dakota Soul (4.8% alcohol by volume, 28 International bittering Units) is a Czech Premium Lager (Bohemian Pilsener) brewed with Saaz and Loral hops and Moravian malt. A faint sulfur aroma lies behind cracker malt, very faint fruit, a hint of sweetness and medium low hop aromas. It pours bright gold under a 1" white cap with fair persistence. A light malty sweetness introduces the flavors joined by rich malt flavors and light cracker leading to a crisp, mild bitterness. It finishes with a lingering malty sweetness balanced by a mild bitterness. Malt flavors are medium minus, hop flavors are medium low and hop bitterness is medium minus. the malt, hop flavor and bitterness work well together. The light to medium light bodied beer has medium carbonation. This is a refreshing, clean flavorful malty Czech style lager. I rate it 79.
