2009 Sierra Nevada Summerfest
2009 Sierra Nevada Summer Fest
Glassware: Lager Glass
Aroma: Yeasty, Stinky, Floral, slight hops
Appearance: Straw golden, small celled white foam
Flavor: Pilsner style, balanced hops, citrus, lemongrass, acidic finish, lingers around a little too long
Sierra Nevada's Summerfest isn't my favorite Sierra Nevada, but is has very nice drinkability, another session beer, good for backyards and BBQ
Food Recommendations: Great at barbecues, picnics, or any time you want a smooth, refreshing beer. Assertive enough to stand up to spicy meats and sauces, its tangy hoppiness also goes well with the sharp, peppery bite of specialty mixed salad greens.
Cigar Recommendation: Ashton White Label Corona- this is a favorite cigar. Connecticut Shade wrapper, and a blended binder and filler, provide a toasty, mild smoke perfect for the outdoors.
