COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summer Pale Ale is our version of the iconic West Coast-style Pale Ale. Our brewer’s decided this beer should be all about the hops. Therefore, we brew it without any crystal malt. In choosing to brew a beer this way, we are left to focus solely on the expressive nature of the hops they choose for this beer.

Saeglopur (684) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 4, 2015
650 ml bottle from Beergium.com, bottled on 05/29/14.
Golden, moderate hazy body, with a massive, frothy, rocky, white head, that leaves a thick lacing.
Fresh, fruity aroma of citrus, apricot, orange, passion fruit and other tropical fruits, some pine, grass, some candy.
Taste follows this pretty much, light bodied, but bursting with fruitiness.
Quite light mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes medium bitter, quite dry, citric, zesty.

Tasty, I can imagine this a perfect summer beer! Very easy to drink and refreshing, light bodied, but with loads of lovely fruits, even from a more than 7 months old bottle. Really a great Pale Ale!

skullgeorge (59) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle from the Hoppy Pub. Pours hazy orange with a thick white head. Hops are coming straight out of my glass. Pine, grapefruit, peach, tropical fruits, I can understand why they call it summer pale ale. Taste is so enjoyable. Easy drinkable with fruits and hops playing in my mouth. Good carbonation and bitter aftertaste with medium body that suits perfect for the style. Another good beer by this great brewery ! Enjoy !!!
