Day #143 – Sierra Nevada Summerfest

May 24, 2011

Another summer beer today. How can I tell you ask? Well it’s right there in the name, SUMMERFEST!!

Sierra Nevada Summerfest

I just had a Sierra Nevada beer on a couple of days ago and now they have another being featured for a glass night. Believe it or not, this will be my first Sierra Nevada glass. Crazy right? The 2nd largest craft brewery and I don’t have a glass from them? Yeah it’s about time I corrected that.

Their summer beer is another great summer style, premium lager (you’ll recall yesterday’s was a kolsch) and it sits at an easy 5%.

The appearance is very clear, light gold to almost a yellowish hue. Foamy head that fades quickly. White color.

Aroma is sweet bread and grains with a light grassy aroma and maybe the smallest touch of fruit. Fairly nice smelling!

Flavor is smooth grains with bitter malts and a touch of bittering hops. Refreshing flavor with a thin mouthfeel. Finishes a tad bitter. Good summer beer.
