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.

cagou007 (923) - 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 (4635) - 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 (2124) - 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.

ciocanelu (994) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAY 24, 2016
Clear golden color with a bit of white foam. Aroma has citrus fruits, ginger and some bready malts. Taste starts with ginger, a bit of lemon, mostly on the sweet side and some bitterness in the background that doesn’t mix very well with the rest of the flavors. Medium body with low carbonation. Overall it feels like a "Salitos" type flavored beer, I don’t really like it.

jesperhammer (4041) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2016
19-MAY-2016, bottle @home, from Meny. Clear golden with a low white head. Huge ginger aroma. Taste is ginger, honey, lemon, lavender? To spiced for me. Sweet, medium body.

MissPxx (959) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2016
Tastes like ginger beer. Actual ginger beer. And it's from New Zealand! I know! Right?! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

adamnowek (1568) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2016
Clear brass colour. Aroma is honey and malt. Taste is, well, ginger. A bit sweet for a summer brew, to be honest.

Rune (10838) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 24, 2016
330ml bottle from a six-pack, bought at the tax-free store at Gardermoen Airport. Clear golden body, missing head, poor lacing. Smell of honey and ginger. Ginger flavours, overly sweet. Not my kind of beer (shared with friends, hotel room Islington London 11.04.2016).

Vighals (2836) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2016
Gylden brun klar med høyt offwhite skum. Tenkte gløgg med en gang når jeg luktet på denne. Ingefær, anis og noe karamell. Lett, noe ingefær og lett karamell i smak. Kort.
