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.

Cimbasso (693) - - JUN 17, 2016
Sampled on draught at The Scarsdale Tavern, Kensington. A light gold colour with a white head. Aroma of sweet malts. The taste is pleasantly malty with hints of honey. Light and very easy to drink, with light bitterness. More taste than a lager, but with some of the same qualities. Good summer drinking.
