COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moneith's limited release Summer Ale is a refreshing different beer. Its uniquie style dates back to the late 19th century when ther was an adherence to brew with distinctive spices. True to tradition, this bright gold beer's spiciness adds a real flavoursome zest-balance by a touch of Rata honey and four different malts. Try it ice cold with a wedge of orange or lime.

ManVsBeer (10485) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2017
Bottle @ Harpenden Arms, Harpenden. Deep, slightly hazed golden coloured ale with a very thin head and a carbonation. Ginger is dominant in aroma and taste and its aftertaste, but is not overbearing, although there’s no getting away fro it.

DraftDodger (1532) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2017
Copenhagen 18/6 2017. 33 cl bottle from Meny. Very Orange label assuring me that I get a lively beer with both Ginger and Honey. Pours clear yellow with white head. Settles as thin almost transparent layer of foam. Aroma makes it clear to me that this resembles Ginger Beer more than regular beer. Ginger is clearly the dominating ingredient judging by the smell. Notes of citrus and peppermint. Medium carbonation and watery palate. Flavor is medium sweet followed by light bitterness. Aftertaste is herbal and distinctly Ginger-like. If you associate your summers with abundant consumption of Ginger this is perfect. I was mostly reminded of the all the Health nuts gobbling up Ginger smoothie shots.

Christos (5791) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2017
(Monteiths Summer Ale) Bottle 330ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 5% Deep golden orange colour on the body, clear, with a good sized, thick white head on top. Aroma of citrus, orange, spices, ginger. Taste has also plenty of ginger, malts, some citrus, lemon peel. Thin body. Okay, nothing special, I also have associated spices with winter beers so that also doesn’t do it for me.

Cunningham (7990) - Halden, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2017
Clear deep golden color with fine head. Good intensity in the aroma. Medium body and an average carbonation level. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Ginger, malty and citric flavor. Decent refreshing ale.
[Bottle from Fjord Line Strömstad - Sandefjord]

2.1
DwarfeD (3513) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2017
33cl bottle shared at home. Clear dark orange with almost no head. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Herbal sweetness with subtle bitter tones. Ginger, honey, tropical fruits, sugar, caramel and malts. The ginger is very present and a tad too overwhelming, no not my brew.

2.7
bonkiedeaap (763) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2017
Bottle from Albert Heijn in Gorinchem, The Netherlands. The beer is deep golden to amber colored and a has an unstable white head, with average carbonation. The aroma is malty and very fruity, with notes of honey, caramel, ginger and spices. Reminds me of shandy. Taste is sweet and malty, with notes of honey and a lot of ginger and other spices. The finish is light bitter and a little sour and short.
