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.

330ml bottle at Jolly Botanist. Pours clear pale gold, thin white head. Aromas of ginger, spicy. Taste is more ginger, light sweet note. Not getting much honey, but that’s no bad thing. Refreshing.

Bottle. Very clear golden pour with tiny white head. Slightly malty nose, taste is very lively malty, with clear notes of both ginger and cinnamon. Somewhat odd, but nice and fresh. Medium body, fizzy carbonation.

Erzengel (5077) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 26, 2015
Malty and smooth brew. Fresh, hints of grain, smooth refreshing malt without too much sweetness. Nice, but not too deep. But refreshing!

Kauge (593) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 26, 2015
Bottle from a Viking Line ferry. BB in a couple of weeks. Pours clear amber with off-white head with moderate retention and little lacing. The nose... pretty nice crisp ginger and caramel. One-dimentional. Tastes rather dull with a strong caramel malt character most pronounced, but the ginger is also quite active. Papery and kinda stale. I don’t know... 12 points? It’s not that bad.

Beerheart65 (1116) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 21, 2015
Clear amber with thin head. Sweet, mild ginger, bit honey, artificial feel. Light body, low carbonation, watery, semisweet, ginger mostly in finish. Dull, artificial, lack nuances.

Leini (1210) - SWEDEN - APR 11, 2015
330ml bottle. Clear golden body with a low white head. Ginger, honey, citrus and mandarine. Refreshing, but a bit too sweet and low on co2.

magex (1) - FINLAND - MAR 14, 2015 does not count
Tastes almost like a basic beer or lager not an ale. No body, just water thin, stale tasting, with a throw-up after taste. So poorly made. Does not have any honey or ginger notes btw!
