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.

Wheat, grass, lemon, orange, grapefruit. Zesty and spicy and pretty hoppy for a golden. Kind of a mix between Headwaters and HopDev.

12oz bottle from Armanettis. Pours a crystal clear, golden-yellow colored body with a finger-width, foamy and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is solid with grassy oranges and lemons, grainy pale malts, a good amount of florals, and some pepper. Flavor is similar. A good amount of grassy lemons, grapefruits, and oranges up front with a grainy pale malt backing. Florals come in during the middle with a slight piney pepper before this finishes grassy and dry with a crisp, clean, light-medium bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a thinner body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a lighter, but flavorful, crisp, clean, and easy drinking beer. Solid grassy citrus bitterness with a nice floral backing and a balanced, grainy pale malt backing. Nothing special, but they nailed what they were going for. Good one.

Bottle form New Leaf Market. Crystal clear golden pour with a fizzy white head. Nose is fresh citrus hops, flowers, touch of spice, honey and sweet graininess. Spicy floral notes up front fading into a lively grains and a bit of sweet honey. Finishes crisp with spicy and floral hops. Fantastic summer session beer.

Draft at World of Beer Land O Lakes. Pours a clear golden yellow with a small white head. Nice residual lacing along the glass. Interesting aroma with an emphasis on the malt, but still a noticeable hop presence. Good flavor for a Summer beer.

Perfect for a summer night! Crisp, hop notes in aroma and taste and this holds a light head. Pair with grilled salmon.

Draft to pint at Dutchs. Looks decent; a translucent gold with ample head. Smells good! Hoppy for what I expected! Tastes pretty good; definitely one of the better blondes Ive had. Mouthfeel is good too. Nice!

Its clear and golden with sticky, tight laced foam, which lingers for a couple of minutes. The aroma seems pretty piney, hop-forward, with some alcohol and warm bread. The flavor is sort of biscuity, with some a touch of medicinal bitterness. It dries out nicely, very bread-y mouthfeel. Reminds me of a pils or a lager. Its a great beer with full flavor, well balanced.
