The Sierra Nevada Summerfest Lager poured a clear straw with a thick white head that quickly dissipated to a thin bubbly lace on the surface. I detected only faint grassy notes with a little malt sweetness.

This is a very crisp, refreshing beer with moderate carbonation. The taste is a smooth malty sweetness with mild hop presence lingering in the aftertaste. It has a light body and is very easy to drink, with a moderate mouthfeel that is a bit surprising.

Like a lot of the other reviews, I don't find this to be a good Czech Pils, but it is a very refreshing summer beer that I could easily drink for an afternoon. A good overall beer.
