Sierra Nevada Summerfest Lager from Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., my first by these guys. Poured from the bottle into a glass, Summerfest has got a 2 finger thick head that went away surprisingly fast. Abundant lacing, though. And a nonremarkable clear, darker yellow body.

Smells like citrus and spices. Can't sense much malt or hop aromas. But I like it, as it IS quite "summer-ish". Nicely done here!

Yep, the citrus and spices show up again in the taste category. In addition to ,yes, malt sweetness and just a touch of "whole cone" hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel is also well done. This brew is very easy-drinking and refreshing. Nice 'n' smooooth, my friends.

Overall a greatly earned 3.5 for Sierra Nevada Summerfest Lager from Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. This is one the easiest drinking non-macro lagers I've ever had. Which is certainly not to say this brew is void of character. Quite the contrary. This is gonna be a staple in my fridge the rest of this seasom
