COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed locally at the Victory Brewery in Chester County, the Summer of Love Ale is a golden ale made with pale malts, German hops and Brandywine River water. This specific style of beer was chosen because it has a broad appeal and will be accessible for casual beer drinkers, but will still retain exciting hop notes.

The brew has a vibrant and refreshing pale color derived from its lean and refreshing malt body. And the initially floral aroma of hops segues into a well integrated, refreshing hop dryness of European heritage.

Bottle. Dark Golden color with a medium head. Aroma was weak, hay. Taste was just a tad hoppy but just bland and not very appealing.

This white gold beer has an amazing sweet aroma of ripe oranges and blueberry muffins. It has a mild hop flavor and is smooth and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is an average summer ale. Pours a clear gold with little head and lots of lacing. Lemon zest, honey, sweet citrus on the nose. Slightly hoppy, pretty sweet. Somewhat bitter aftertaste. Nothing special.

Dapierce17 (77) - Pasco, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Pours a lite hazy golden color with a little bit of fizzy head. Lemon-citrus aromas with slight piney hop note as well. Taste is crisp with floral and citrus hop bite with some biscuit undertones and slight spice. Very refreshing. Cross between a pale ale and a pilsner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

streve (99) - Maryland, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Draft at Green Turtle in Aberdeen. Poured a light golden color with a small head. Aroma of citrus and spice. Taste is light and crisp with a very nice hop character. Definitely a good, light summer beer for someone who enjoys IPAs or the hop bitterness.

RRistow12 (215) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear gold with white head. Aroma of grass, grains, citrus fruits and biscuits. Taste is moderately sweet with a mild to moderate bitterness. Flavors of grass, biscuits, caramel. Light to medium bodied. Pretty crisp and refreshing on the palate. A very gold blond best on a hot day. Definitely sessionable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bright gold. Wheat and citrus aroma. Light malt, lemon, grassy hops. Pleasantly bitter for a summer ale. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
