Beer of the Week 44: Summerfest

Sierra Nevada’s Summerfest

From the bottle:

Summerfest is a Pilsner-style lager brewed for enjoyment on warm summer days – featuring a slight malt sweetness, delicate spicy and floral hop flavor, and a crisp, refreshing finish.

From my notes:

Straw colored beer with medium bubbled white head. Smells of grass, lemon, and some malty sweetness. Tastes like it smells with some orange/lemon in there as well.  Crisp dry finish with some hop highlighting. Like a really mild Pilsner.

That’s a fine looking lager!

Like a lot of Sierra Nevada’s beers Summerfest is good without being amazing. If you’re sick of drinking Pacificos or Coronas at your summer/fall BBQs pick up a six pack of this instead!

Doesn’t mix well with polite company; his two favorite topics being politics and religion. Would rather be out cycling, swimming, running, or camping. Misspent his youth reading genre-fiction; today, he is making up for it by reading large quantities of non-fiction literature. The fact that truth, in every way, is more fascinating than fiction still tickles him.
