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.

Bottle looks simple but really good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts mild, fine malty fruity, hints of apricot and peach. Not very dry. Okay.

Keg - MacKenzie Bar & Grill, Lake Tekapo. Poured a clear, bright amber colour with a small but somewhat lasting white head. Summer fruits and spicy ginger dominate. Firm mouthfeel with some light pale malt sweetness. Light to medium body, medium carbonation with a short, perfumed ginger finish lingering into the aftertaste. Quite heavy on the ginger but in a fragrant, floral - rather than vegetal - way with focus on sweetness owing to a low bitterness.

The head is ok, the body golden. It smells a bit spicy, malty, spicy-citrus. The taste is spicy-citrus, bit bitter and mild. Medium

Pours a clear orange colour with a small whit head. Aroma is malt, honey, spices and toastiness. Taste is light to medium sweet leading to a sweet finish. Meh

Pretty sweet and cloying, would not advise as a good session beer. Easy drinking style though, zero bitterness and the girls can drink it happily. A nice way to finish the day after a hard hot days work in my case. Nothing special though.

Sugar, sugar, sugar, sugar, sugar, and some little spice. Not a very pleasant beer. Colorful label, though.

Smells of ginger and dried fruits. Dehydrated urine in colour. Lightly carbonated. Tastes like gummy bears. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
