Nothing special. No character to speak of. Sorry, I had to upload these old ratings. They were for me, not for uploading. And also I need 75 characters, hence this sentence. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Summerfest is lighter in body than most Sierra Nevada beers but fits right in as a very refreshing traditional lager. This beer displays significant hop aroma for a Pilsner. As you should expect with a lager it has a smoothness that makes this beer very drinkable on a warm day.

Draft from a bar near the Mission in San Luis Obispo. Easy-drinking pils with light grass and pine hops and some biscuity malt. Decent enough.

Clear gold with a white head and a malty nose. Well-carbonated with a medium mouthfeel and a bready, honey-sweet finish.

Deep gold with a decent white head. Fresh hay with some sulphur notes in the aroma. Malty with balancing bitterness. Crisp just as the label says. Light to medium bodied with a moderately bitter finish. Nice summer lager.

This is a refreshing beer that isn't to strong. It's slightly sweet and crisp. Glad someone left it at my house for me to try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours golden with a white head. The aroma is grain, ripe fruit, and a little skunky. The taste is grain, berry, and slightly bitter hops. It’s pretty crisp and refreshing. This is an okay beer.

Pours a golden yellow, and a bright, crisp hop flavor. This is a nice summer beer great to drink after yard work, sitting around the patio or with a light summer meal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
