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.

Not a fan. A bit sweet and watery. Flavor has malts and some honey and rosemary which could be nice but the brew is too weak to make it stand out.

goozen (3847) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2016
Bottle 0,33ltr: Clear golden colored brew with an sweet bitter taste, much hints of ginger and some orange and honey. Little bit unbalanced, could be much better this brew from the far South Pacific.

djoeye (3835) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2016
Off white head, clear deep golden body. Tarty fruity aroma, berries, vanilla-like spices, caramel, ginger, hops, citrus. Smooth taste, leafy sunset sweet hops, caramel, malts, lemon, malted ginger candies, honey notes - ginger’ish finish. Normal on palate, a bit lemonade’ish. Overall, much lemonade.

Quite bad, again Heineken pushes out the many great breweries in the Netherlands by putting this dishwater on the shelves. Ginger too much, sooo sweet, horrible beer. Why Albert Heyn? Why?

JorisPPattyn (9531) - 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.

arsol (989) - NORWAY - JUL 22, 2016
Gyllen brun farge med hvitt lavt skum. Klar. Lukter av sitron og krydder. Ingefær?. Smaker malt, honningsødme. Mild og lettdrikkelig.
