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.

strap (863) - Sindelfingen, - MAY 28, 2013
Golden and fizzy. Aroma of cheap lager and honey. A little citrus and honey. Not quite a San Adams Summer. Could be a solid session beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It is a nice refreshing Blond Ale. Nothing too special but it does the job.

TedE (1185) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 16, 2017
330ml bottle into pint glass. Interesting sweet ginger nose, reminds me of S.E. Asia for some reason. Pale amber beer, no head, a few bubbles. Zingy mouthfeel, weak malt lager taste. Finish is plasticine and fake grape. Its horrible.

Pours a clear yellow with thin head. Unexpected ginger beer flavour. Light and thin fizzy lemonade gingerbeer almost shandy. Fairly unplesant but some might like it as a super sweet light watery refreshment on a hot day.

The beer looks nice. The color of the beer is a nice golden yellow. It is a bit pale. The beer is nice and clear. A lot of rather big bubbles are rising towards the top. There, a nice layer of rough white foam is formed, with collapses rather quickly, leaving a thin drape. The smell of the beer is not bad. It isnt that strong. It has a distinct summery touch though. There is a nice sweet smell of honey and also a nice aroma of ginger. I also smell some zesty bitters and a nice malty base. The smell is quite sweet, but not out of balance. The ginger and honey arent to strong, luckily. It misses some wow though. The taste of the beer is also nice, but not extremely special. There is a nice malty base, on which te different flavours are build. There is a nice zesty bitterness, honey sweetness and ginger spiciness. The taste lacks a bit of strength. Nice though. The palate is good. The body is medium, so is carbonation. The finish is not to long and contains a nice honey flavour. Nice beer.

DutchMark (381) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2016
Not a fan. A bit sweet and watery. Flavor has malts and some honey and rosemary which could be nice but the brew is too weak to make it stand out.
