COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sun Fest is crisp, refreshing and thoroughly drinkable in the European-style Pilsner tradition. A fresh hop aroma and a final round of "dry hopping" enhances its lively summer character.

Coming from pyramid I really got fired up when i got ahold of this one, but it fell short of my expectations. No exciting flavor, it actually should be called pyramid dry, or instead of sun fest, maybe sun dried.

I was not impressed with this beer. Very grainy aftertaste left in the mouth. Much better offerings in this style out there.
