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.

On tap at Pour. Just ok for me. Can’t jump on the Victory bandwagon for some reason. Light pour and light taste with a finish that doesn’t quite work. I might consider this really, really cold after mowing the lawn. Pils-like. OK.

Aroma bread, hay, Appearance pale, golden, clear, white foam, Taste medium sweetness, Palate light body, thin feel, Overall it tastes a little better than a Miller lite but it’s on the same page. I would suggest this beer to a friend who likes miller bud or corse lite style beers. Hopefully it would get them to try craft beer.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2015 Part of a stellar tasting lineup at K&L Wines in Redwood City. Noble hop aroma balanced nicely with biscuit malt. Clear yellow with white head. Taste follows aroma. More gritty pils malt on the retaste.

Has a really nice aroma. Descent taste that is slightly hoppy but still pretty tame. Good.

BOSSbrewer (2706) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 21, 2015
On tap at 28 Springs. Pours a golden yellow with a very thin white head. Aroma is slight pine. Some corn. Flavor follows and is slightly sweet and fairly hoppy for the style. Nice beer but really more of a pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg in Molly Malloys, Philly. Heavy malty body with a strong head. Slight pilsner-esque crispness to it but tropical fruits coming though.
