Moneith's limited release Summer Ale is a refreshing different beer. Its uniquie style dates back to the late 19th century when ther was an adherence to brew with distinctive spices. True to tradition, this bright gold beer's spiciness adds a real flavoursome zest-balance by a touch of Rata honey and four different malts. Try it ice cold with a wedge of orange or lime.

thellgren (293) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 5, 2014
0.33 l bottle form Viking LIne ferry from Stockholm to Helsinki. Decent head with lots of bubbles. The taste and smell of ginger dominates, but dies fast on your mouth leaving a watery aftertaste. I like ginger so this quite OK, but over all experience is a bit thin.

Borresteijn (4792) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2014
33cl Bottle from The Beer Tree. Clear light amber/orange colour, white head. Aroma of root beer/ginger beer, very lemonade-like, artificial. Flavour is of ginger beer, tiny hint of the promised honey, just very sweet and artificial, light malty, just not very pleasant if you expect a beer. Light-bodied, fizzy.

Flaska från @msbrindbergs, tack. Ljusgul lagerfärgade vätska med vitt skum. Doftar vidrigt kemiskt. Smakar som ginger joe fast sämre... Inget vidare...

MSBrindbergs (377) - Solna, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2014
Flaska från Vikingline taxfree. Gyllengulbrun klar vätska med lätt skum. Suspekt blandning av frukt och diskmedel i doften. Smakar avslagen läsk. Fy fan... Håll er borta från allt som heter Monteith's ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

guzgorog (289) - FRANCE - SEP 9, 2014
Blonde cuivrée avec un haut col de mousse blanche. Nez prononcé de gingembre et de citron. La bouche est également très/trop sur le gingembre, notes d’agrumes, petit côté produits ménagers désagréable. Sucrée, faible amertume. Bof, le gingembre domine vraiment trop ...
