COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

JorisPPattyn (9253) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 23, 2016
Small, white-greyish head, fast gone despite lively carbonation in veiled orangey golden beer. Very spicy nose, lavender springing to mind, as some pine needles, heather. Bathroom connotations.... Less outspoken above aromas in the mouth, plus arachide, caramel, ginger and some citrus. Better balanced, if yet not very attractive. Ultra light, watery appearance and at the edge of overcarbonation. Disappointing in this time and age.

Gyllen brun farge med hvitt lavt skum. Klar. Lukter av sitron og krydder. Ingefær?. Smaker malt, honningsødme. Mild og lettdrikkelig.

Ktwse (3839) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2016
Pours clear amber with low white head. Aroma of fruit, sweet candy, maybe hints of citrus. Taste is super sweet, fruit, candy, somewhat artificial. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.

TrefwoordPunk (900) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear golden with a medium to big white head and an aroma of lemon, ginger, honey, malts and vinegar. Why do they call this a limited release when it’s even available in a Dutch supermarket?

DrNosha (1534) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - JUL 11, 2016
33cl Flasche. Dunkelgelbes Bier, flüchtiger Schaum. Ungewöhnlicher Duft. Ingwer, tropische Früchte und etwas Minze. Geschmack ist auch sehr ungewohnt. Erinnert an ein herbes Ginger Ale. Dazu etwas Holz und Hopfen. Bitteres Finish. Ein echtes Unikat!

cagou007 (970) - FRANCE - JUN 21, 2016
Bottle in Orange-- Pours clear golden with medium white head. Nose is citrusy and ginger. Aromas are sweet malt, honey and ginger. Average carbonation, medium body. Medium ginger and sweet finish. Easy drinkable but reminds me more of a soda than a beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Arve_Christian (4706) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2016
ON bottle from OSL Airport, arrival. Clear golden color, ok foam. Medium aroma intensity; Radler like citrus, honey and some fruitiness. Light body & complexity. A little on the sweet side. Not impressive- would prefer a industrial macro anytime

jjsint (2186) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2016
Bottle from the Star, Bishop’s Stortford. Mid- to dark gold. Nice big white head. Smells of ginger. Nothing but ginger. Like a ginger beer. Tastes spicy and slightly sour like a basic lager infused with ginger. Not getting honey at all. A bit of soft citrus on the finish. Nicely carbonated. Many problems but its refreshing enough to garner a half decent rate.
