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.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of frothy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated transparent yellow colored body. The aroma was malty and musty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of corn hops and malt. Not one that I would likely buy again. A miss for Victory in my opinion.

Bottle poured in chilled pint. Light yet crazy flavorful. A saviour in a season of summer shandys. Must try.

Bottle. Nice spicy hops bite on the nose above a nondescript yellow body. Flavor is half American Pale Ale, half pale lager, with a hoppy finish. Flavorful and built for sessions. Good stuff.

A nice summer brew. Thanks Chipalsa. Nose is slight citrus and grapefruit and some biscuit, grass, and pale style malt aromas. Pour is yellow with a white head. Filled my Tremens glass up. Taste is grapefruit and pale malts with a light bitter finish. Nice and refreshing. Would love to try this on tap.

Decent. That’s a good word for it. I would say that this doesn’t really standout or make itself remarkable in any way, but it is a good summer beer. Light, golden color with some hop and grapefruit notes. Super easy to drink. If you’re sitting outside on a warm summer day, expect to go through a six pack in no time.

This is an easier drinking subtly hopped ale from victory. Great floral aroma, but most importantly thirst-quenching.

Bottle. Deep yellow/pale orange pour with a white head. Pale malt and light hop aroma. Easy drinking palate with a great hop bite. Outstanding summer quencher.
