COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summer Beer is a Pre-Prohibition Pils, brewed alt style. This beer is crisp, clean, refreshing and hoppy, Inspired by the long-forgotten beverage of our great-grandparents, our "twist" is that we ferment this beer with our exceptionally clean ale yeast at much lower than normal temperatures, which imparts a somewhat different character compared to lager yeast. In the Pre-Pro style, we use a small proportion of maize (corn). The noble (and expensive) Czech Saaz hop variety is used through-out, and gives this beer a spciy herbal character and dryish finish. This new rendition of an old classic will add a unique contrast to any line-up!!

yngwie (13350) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle, 22oz, at TFODRBSG-12. A dense, finger-thick off-white head sits on top of a hazy, golden body. The aroma has some pale malts and sugary hints, with lightly peppery, grassy hops. Some resin hints. Pale malts and some sugar on the palate, full-bodied and quite effervescent. Fruityness, some grass and a touch of pepper and herbs in the flavor, decent bitterness lasting for a while. A quite pleasant and easy drinkable, but I know of many pale beers I’d rather have. 120818

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours light gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is bready and lightly spicy. Med body. Flavor is spicy, bready, and it’s sweet going all to bitter. There’s so much hop it’s almost perfumey. And bitingly spicy. Drinks very well.
