COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - May to August.
Light, smooth, and refreshing, Summer Ale is pale gold in colour, and at 3.9% alcohol by volume, an excellent quaffing ale. It delivers a flavour most lagers can only dream of, thanks to its all-malt brew (containing malted wheat), and 100% Saaz hops, a Czech variety found in the best pilseners. Like Organic Honey Dew, it should always be served chilled.

JorgeLee (1135) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2013
Cask at the Holly Bush NW3. Light yellow gold in colour, not much of a head. Unusual taste said Gowri, Iím guessing the wheat and lager hops. Despite the general panning I thought this was ok for a summer quaffer, light slight tang to the malt and some gentle hopping. Went down easily.
