look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A: Summerfest started with a decent head but recedes within minutes, still lacing is somewhat nice. The color is golden yellow which resembles straw.
S: The aroma is tough to gather any sort specific elements. To me there was a heavier yeasty smell, maybe some lemon but other than that Im not getting much from the smell.
T: Honestly all I really taste is a grainy/biscuit flavor through out the whole gulp. There a hop presence at the beginning but the rest is malt. For this reason I think the drinkability is easy, nothing complicated here and is quite refreshing.
M; Light body, carbonation is refreshing, not thick or thin it has a nice balance.
O: The name summerfest suits this beer perfectly. Its easy to drink, has flavor and is light. It was nice to try but I will stick with Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere for the summer season.

4.14/5 rDev +13.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
12 oz. bottle poured into a pilsner glass.
Appearance: Pours a clear straw with heavy carbonation and a two-finger fluffy white head. Some nice lacing on the way down. I love the look of a good pilsner and this one has it.
Aroma: The beer smells of grass, hops, and biscuit. There's also an odd note of corn that is very slight but noticeable. It's not off-putting but slightly surprising.
Taste: The taste is classic pilsner. Nice dry finish to compliment a grassy flavor. The taste basically follows the nose, minus that corny note.
Mouthfeel: Nice and light, as a summer lager should be, but not watery or overly thin.
Overall: This is a terrific pilsner. I'd have this during any season, but it's certainly great as a summer seasonal.
