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.

12oz Bottle, won in beer tasting at ABC. Fresh, malty aroma. Flavors are crisp, clean and bright, with a breezy freshness. Surprised at how flavorful this beer is. Where most Golden Ales are listless, flawed, too chewy or with distracting side notes, this one is very drinkable. Nice hoppy flavor mid-taste. Light-to-medium body. Average carbonation. Clean finish. I really look forward to each sip. Solid work. I had not been a big fan of victory til now, but I think more of them after this offering.

Draft at Growler Guys: Yellow in color with a small white head. Mild aroma is sweet, a little malty and some faint floral hops. Tastes malty, grain, and a little herbal. More earthy than sweet. Refreshing.

pours into a yellow body with a crisp white head, the nose isn’t 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!
