Summerfest is a delightfully refreshing example of a traditional style lager beer. While lighter in body than our ales, Summerfest displays significant hop aroma and a tangy hop bite. The long lagering period adds a smoothness that makes this beer a great summertime treat.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - NOV 7, 2004
A very plain beer, thought Sierra Nevada would do better, very faint fruit flavor, bland taste on the palate, not so good, I’d drnk a few lagers over this one:-(

Tap @ Lucky Baldwins, Pasadena Anonymous nose. Golden, low carbonation and head. A bit fruit in the flavor, but overall lightish with a bitter finish. Not too exiting.

SDalkoholic (2274) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 31, 2004
Sparkling gold, tiny white head, and little amount of carbonation. Nose is very faint but doughy. Flavor is a bland and yeasty with minimum amount of hops and some lemon squeeze. Would imagine this is good summer brew on a hot day but thats about the only time.

tomxcs (321) - California, USA - OCT 30, 2004
The usual appearance of a plain, pale lager, maybe a bit darker. Nose is a little earthy with some cloves & hops. Taste is malty and hops are definitely present. Creamy with a good amount of carbonation. Not bad. It was a little old but still okay.

Bottle. White head, sparse lacing, carbonated, transparent, and a yellow hue. Malty, earthy and hoppy in the aroma. Lightly bitter and malty flavor. Smooth mouthfeel.

Pours dark yellow with a very small head. the smell is hoppy and some undistinguishable fruitiness. The taste has that new brewery bite to it adn leaves you with a very bitter finish. Pretty uneventful. Not one of my favs.

This bottled brew poured a large sized head of frothy fine to medium sized mostly lasting white colored bubbles that left behind an unnoted lacing. The body contained average carbonation, was transparent and orange in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild grasses and malts . Its mouth feel is mild initially tingly and hoppy. Its flavor contained malty spicy hoppy doughy notes and had a mild burning sensation as it went down not like peppers, but more like a warming sensation from the hops. A very average brew with a warm twist.

TerryR (388) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2004
Bright golden color with a huge, sustained head. Aroma is malt, hops, and a note of citrus. Flavor is sweet malt balanced by hop bitterness in the end. Medium bodied. While I prefer bigger beers, I think this was an excellent lighter styled beer.

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2004
Bottled, Stockholm Beer Festival. Dark golden colour. Good old S.N. house character in the aroma. Somewhat fruity and woody flavour. Crisp as a summerbeer should be.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2004
Bottled. A sweet malty aroma to this orange-gold coloured lager. The taste is also sweet and malty, almost creamy. Unspectacular.
