While traditionally Damonte has been a dark/amber beer connoisseur, when Spring (and Summer) roll around, there's just something nice about a good lager.

Enter Sierra Nevada's Summerfest, a "crisp summer beer" .

With a lovely light yellow color it has just the right amount of hops, but doesn't leave one with that sharp super-hop aftertaste. 5% ABV puts it right about at the bottom of what Damonte prefers (quality > quantity), but that just means instead of two, Damonte can have three.

This particular beer went very well with burgers hot off the grill and the smell of fresh cut grass.
