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.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a big white foamy head. Has a crisp clean taste but fairly ordinary. Nothing special.

Pumpkin87 (235) - - JUL 14, 2016
Pours from bottle crisp golden yellow with small, bone-white head. Nose is biscuit, grass, lemon. On the palate, hoppy citrus is mercifully restrained by touch of malt and bread. Reasonable ABV avoids strong alcohol taste. Nothing too complicated, but clean and crisp, a breezy beer for a day at the beach.

Intense floral hops, light honey, grain and bread malts, light caramel, some straw. Clear gold, small, frothy, white head. Medium bitter. Floral hops continue, pale grain malts, lively carbonation, light pine in the finish. Decent Golden Ale, yet nothing too special. Bottle from Wine Rack, Henley-on-Thames.
