Chicago Slice Summer Ale

Brewed by Chicago Brewing Company
Las Vegas, Nevada USA
5.2% Golden Ale/Blond Ale | 3 Ratings | Summer Seasonal |
Slice Summer Ale is the perfect beer for the blistering hot days of summer. To give this beer a unique twist, coriander spice and sweet orange peel are added to the kettle during the boil to provide a balanced flavor and refreshing taste. Slice is light bodied with a highly carbonated crisp dry finish. A touch of Munich malt adds to the beer’s malt profile while a few pounds of citrus-like hops provide a thirst quenching hop character to compliment the beer. At the brewery, we serve Slice Summer Ale with a fresh cut orange on the rim and encourage squeezing it into the beer. The fresh orange helps accentuate the orange peel used in our brewing process. 5.2% ABV
