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.

Bottle. Nothing new here, but this satisfied my craving for a pilsner. Standard appearance, not much foam and carbonation seems a little light. rain and malt flavors, dry and bitter. Big saaz flavor, and it is also in the aroma. I am surprised this is not rated higher.

12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a transparent thin yellow color, extremely white thin ring about the glass for a head but with zero lacing, light carbonation. Aroma of a "Euro-lager" (I gotta research the combo of hops again, it just reminds me of a lager made in Europe) and grass. Hits the mouth with a thin body, malt tastes like corn got into the brewing process to me at least, middle holds up well, finish is mildly crisp, but could use a good kick in the nuts.

Standard medium, yellow body with a thin white head. Aroma is faint hops, citrus and pine. Taste is lightly bitter, yet crisp. Hops with some fruit, yet not overly sweet at all. Finishes clean. not bad.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3794) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 31, 2015
Sierra Nevada’s Summerfest 2015 Crisp Lager. It pours a bright clear gold with a foamy white head. The aroma is mildly fruity with a cork quality to it and a decent breadiness. Sharp carbonation on a med-light body with a crisp dry finish. The taste is a bit earthy then biting herbal hops and some flatbread malt sweetness. Refreshing on a hot day, not the best Czech lager I’ve had but they’re near the mark of what the style should be. Decent.

Bottle at jerrys wedding. Nose is cheap beer and malt. Gold and thin. Some spice in there but malt kills it and it really isn't that good. Would go elsewhere.
