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.

Aroma is light but has some zest. Appearance is yellow with some orange. Taste has some hop character and some sweetness. Palate has a hop bitterness. Nothing extraordinary, but a nice hoppy paler ale.

pours into a yellow body with a crisp white head, the nose isnít strong although i did detect a fresh floral aroma. taste is a fresh one that has hints of floral but settles on a caramel finish. a pleasant ale.

Earthy must. Bright citrus. Pale cloudy light yellow with a bright white head that fizzes away pretty quickly leaving a hint of foam on the side of the glass. Citrusy. Yeasty. Bright with a clean finish. A little bite at the end. Not bad. Decent summer beer.

None of the pilsner aroma or taste. None of the radler lemonaid. Too muddled in taste and styles to please me!

Good well-hopped aroma of nuts and maltighet. The taste is the same. Good bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long time. Good beer. Follow me @ Kung av Ųl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Hoppy golden ale at the ballpark in Philly. Well balanced and quaffable. The Rogers Center sucks. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. Pours a straw or light golden color with a nice white head that doesn't last long. Nice crisp malt aroma. Biscuit taste, the hop flavor is a nice bitterness that adds to the crispness. Not much citrus or pine, a nice malt aftertaste. A great beer from a great brewery ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

muzzlehatch (4578) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 24, 2016
Several draught pints at The Rock in Beloit, WI, late June. Sitting outside on a perfect 75 degree (24-degrees C to all of you anti-American Euro-Asiati-African terrorists) cloudless day, the briefest wisp of wind, eating the All-American burger & fries - and drinking this. Itís a very smooth-drinking, full-bodied (but not too full that I didnít need more) summer beer, probably as close to perfect on that simple scale as anything Iíve had in whatís turned out to be a scorcher - the pour is, gosh, golden of course, not exactly clear but close enough, with a thin whisker of lasting snow...itís bready-malty in the nose, with a little rosemary, a bit of honey...and on the tongue these characteristics deliver the beer equivalent of a very good, very light honey-wheat bread, not my favorite item from the bakery normally but heck Iíll take a great example of that over a very poor brioche or pumpernickel, wouldnít you? and thatís what this is, an expert example of a not-that-exciting style. Hereís to more patio days, if it ever gets cool and dry enough again....
