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.

Draught and bottle. Bout time to rate as I only have one bottle left. Clear golden pour with a frothy white head. Pretty. Grainy aroma with hints of bread and light citrus. Flavors were lightly bitter with grainy malts and earthy hops. Nice subtle citrusy character throughout. Incredibly crisp from top to bottom. Finished dry, easy carbonation. Fantastic stuff.

12 oz bottle. Pours golden with a long lasting white head. Aroma is of orange, citrusy hops and pale malt. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Citrusy hops, ripe fruit and biscuit malt nicely balanced on the palate. Finish is long on a hoppy side. Excellent summer brew.

Bottle. Super clear golden with a medium off-white head. Aroma is resin/floral hops, with some toasty malts. Taste is mild sweet, mild-medium bitter. Slightly dry finish. Light bodied, soft to moderate carbonation, texture is a bit watery. Not bad on a hot day.

Bottle pours golden with foamy white head. Strong floral, grass, grapefruit, tropical fruit notes on top of a caramel body. Moderate bitterness and sweetness. Light, crisp body. Interesting if somewhat feminine.

bwa5879 (911) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Pale yellow pour. White head that disappeared quickly. Very light body. Lots of floral hop flavor. Crisp feel as well. Finishes light, leaves a tinge of bitterness on the palette. Good but not great. Light and refreshing however.

iugrad93 (265) - Indiana, USA - JUL 17, 2012
spot on with its design: light, drinkable, tad lagerish. should appeal to the masses but does have a stronger malt base with some (though light) hoppiness. overall, a pretty decent beer made for summer.

12oz bottle. A golden ale thats actually pretty good. Light and refreshing with a pleasant citrus flavor and nice hop bite. Definitely works as a summer ale.
