Brewsday Tuesday: Sierra Nevada Summerfest
The United States has been in the midst of a miserable heatwave. While it has not been as hot in North Florida as other parts of the nation it still has been a sauna. This weekend I was grilling and needed something to keep me from passing out in the heat. Sierra Nevada’s Summerfest was called into duty and below are my thoughts.
Name: Sierra Nevada Summerfest
Brewed by: Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
Location: Chico, California
Style/ABV: CzechPilsener / 5.0%
Appearance: Pours a clear straw yellow with a three finger puffy white head. Decent head retention with zero lacing.
Smell: Bready malts mixed with fresh cut grass and a hint of citrus.
Taste: Sweet malts at the beginning, moves into earthy flavors and closes with a nice hop bite. Very refreshing.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, medium body with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This is a very good summer beer. It is crisp, very refreshing, and kept me from bursting into flames while grilling on our 100 degree patio.
Final Grade: A
