Poured into a Czech Pilsner glass.

A: Light yellow color with one finger of head that fades quickly leaving light lacing. A ton of carbonation.

S: Pale malt, pepper, and hops.

T: Pale malt, hops, grapefruit with a citrus aftertaste. Taste of grapefruit lingers afterwards.

M: Light body mouthfeel which transforms with the bite of the hops. Semi-dry finish.

O: Overall this is a very enjoyable and easy drinking beer.

Sierra Nevada Summerfest Lager pours a clear light yellow with a small, white fizzy head on top. The foam fades away quickly leaving a few spots of lace on the glass. Lots of small bubbles float slowly to the surface.

The aroma is rather faint. It has notes of lemon grass, a touch of pale malt and a little skunk mixed in.

Each sip of this light bodied beer is watery on the palate with a mild to moderate carbonated fizz. The flavor begins with some notes of lemon and a touch of pepper. In the middle some light grain appears that presents some malty sweetness. It finishes mildly bitter and floral with lingering grassy bitterness and lemon.

This is a tasty, very easy to drink beer. It's well balanced and quite refreshing.
