Review – Sierra Nevada Summerfest Lager
From Sierra Nevada Brewing – Our Summerfest® is a refreshing, pilsner-style lager. Its incredible smoothness comes from an extra-long lagering period. Lighter in body than our ales but just as complex in character, Summerfest® quenches your thirst with big aroma and a tangy hop bite.
Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. – Summerfest Lager – 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. 5% abv. Purchased at Whole Foods Pasadena, CA – Hastings Ranch location.
Appearance: Pours a clear yellow gold with an active 1/4 inch of sudsy foam.
Aroma: Very light whiffs of dry malt and bitter Euro hops.
Taste: Metallic, earthy hops, dry buscuity malt.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, thin, watery.
Overall: The beer is refreshing, and highly drinkable. This isn’t my preferred style, but wouldn’t say no to this on a hot day.
