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.

Taste of grass, a slight hint of that weird Heineken flavor, hop bitterness in the finish. Nothing to write home about.

Clear yellow. This smells like tomato sauce....lots of grains, some kinda herbs, odd. Luckily it doesn't taste like tomato sauce, grainy, pale malts, a bit bitter on the finish. Kinda watery. Meh

12oz from Brewers Haven.. Clear straw golden, wispy white head... Grainy pale malt and light grassy hops. Sorta sweet finish... No flaws really, but just nothing I will ever seek out again.

Poured into a pint glass. 4.5 A: Clear golden yellow color. Two fingers of frothy white head. Retention is good and plenty of lacing is left. 3.5 S: This smells refreshing. Clean neutral maltiness. Hoppy for what it is, offering mainly floral and citrus notes. Not much else to say. 3.75 T: Tastes as refreshing as it smells. Clean neutral malts, light citrus hoppiness and a bit more floral, and a mild to moderate bitterness. 3.75 M: Lighter medium to medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Just enough thickness in here. Light creaminess. 3.75 D: Supremely drinkable. Perfect lawnmower beer or anytime beer.

On tap at Rattle ’N’ Hum, NYC. Spicy and citrusy noble hops aroma married to light pilsner malt. Very nearly clear light gold under a lacy, white sheet. Slightly spicy hay Hallertau flavour that starts with an assertive bitterness that develops into a sweet, pilsner malt. Excellent balance, even if more bitter than most authentic Helleses. Medium body, medium carbonation, crisp.

Bottle. Bitter grassy and earthy nose. Pale golden, low white head. Medium light dry grassy base, quite bitter, minerally strawberry finish. Extreme english session ale.

12 oz bottle from Supermarket Liquors into a pint glass. Clear gold appearance with a small off-white head that lingers and laces the glass. Aroma of hop spice, toasted grains, floral notes, light bread and pale malts. Similar flavor, crisp, mild hop bitterness and light sweetness. Light bodied, fresh and easy to drink with a light dry finish. Seems like it would be a sessionable crowd pleaser.

Bottle, Chester Beer & Wine. Gold pour with a trifling white head. Aroma had some grassy hop, citrus and biscuity malts in the house. Lightish body. Flavour was dry and crisp with notes of lemon, grass and a little pine. Solid enough with ok hoppage but this doesn’t rank amongst Victory’s finest.

Golden appearance, taste of lemons. Plenty of hops, but still light and refreshing

Enjoyed at BTBF 2015. Clear gold appearance. Zesty, sour sweet aroma. Fruity nose. Hoppy taste with citrus lemon and spice.
