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.

Crisp summer beer. A little more hops than expected, but not overwhelming. Good for backyard grilling. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours gold with a white head. Smells of resiny hops, spicy, some floral elements. Tastes of dry malt, some bitterness on the finish, some nice peppery spicy hoppy notes. Enjoyable summer beer.

12oz bottle. Pours a light gold color with streamers of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Head is a thin ring of white. Aroma is grassy hops with some crisp malt. Flavor is grassy and citrusy. Very clean and light on the tongue. It satisfies its intended purpose.

RyanK (268) - Rhode Island, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Pours a clear light yellow with a small white bubbly head that stays as a minimal lacing, plenty of carbonation. Smells of grass, lemon and earthy hops. Very light in taste and is more like a pilsner or pale ale. Lemon in grass taste are minimal the hops are pleasant and the malt is pretty strong, but it is pale malt, so not overly strong. Great session beer wonderful after working up a sweat

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2012
12oz bottle. Clear yellow straw color, white fizzy head. Aroma of very floral hops, some sweet citrus hops as well. Sharp bitter hops overwhelm the taste buds. This beer is all hops. Some pale malts in the background, hidden by the blast of citrus oil and leather. A good summer beer. LOADS of HOPS. (3341)

Tap at Maple Tree Inn. Citrus (mostly grapefruit) aroma and flavor. Very well done. Good malt behind the scenes. Blended exceptionally well. I want to mow my lawn just so I can drink this beer afterward!
