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.

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!

olliejobbins (1185) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2015
330ml bottle. pours clear slightly amber with head that disappears almost instantly. aroma is spices and ginger and not much else. this doesn’t resemble a golden ale whatsoever. it’s just a ginger beer. and a crappy one at that. very watery. it’s different but not in a good way.

Unique. Expectation of a beer will lead to a disappointment but one of a refreshing drink will give you more satisfaction. Very fruity to the extent that the hoppiness cannot take any place in the aroma. Cidery flavour does not leave any lingering on a palate and it does not call for another sip in a hurry. Worth a try if you are after a different kind of drink for the difference’s sake.

Duft av blomster, ingefær og sitronbrus. Klar gyllen farge. Tynt lag skum, noe karbonering. Smak av sitronbrus og ingefær. Minner om øl blandet med sitronbrus.

Bottle. It’s a clear, golden beer with a small, white head. The aroma is very lemony, reminding me mostly of a German radler. Not much else going on. The same goes for the flavor, with some flower honey hints and a little bitterness added. Ginger notes. Rather thin on the palate, soft carbonation. Honey, ginger and some lemonade in the finish. Certainly not my kind of beer.141108
