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.

Fantastic hops punch, yet surprisingly light on the pallet. Not too much alcohol, perfect for hot days. Just might be my new favorite.

bottle. straw yellow pour with a 1 finger white head. citrus and earthy hop aromas with light grain notes. med crisp body with lovely citrus bitterness with some spice notes, light esters and a smooth light pils malt character. semi-dry bitter citrus finish that lasts. excellent golden ale!

Zesty, buttery aroma with well-brewed hops. Clear, very bright yellow beer, bad label. Drier than I thought it would be. Grassy, moderately bitter with vegetable hops flavors. Flaccid at first, not as crisp as I expected, and the mouthfeel is a bit watery -- I’ve got to dock this for palate/mouthfeel, but it does finish out with a nice bitterness. Summer beer? To be sure -- a bunt single, but not what I expect out of Victory. Enjoyed while watching FSU hand Stanford its worst baseball loss in school history in the Super Regional. ABC Liquors, Betton.

KornDogg (570) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Bottle. Floral, subtle grapefruit aroma. Golden body with thin dissipating head. Flavor begins malty with bitter hops followed by citrus notes. Dry, with a floral finish and a bitter aftertaste.

3.5
SuIIy (1984) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Draft at Coda, Boston. Pours a light yellow hazy color with a small white head. Nose is nice fresh grass, light yeasty aroma. Palate is crisp and refreshing, great summer feel. Flavor is light up front with some grass and straw but finishes with a light lemon zest and a very nice floral hop note in the back end.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - JUN 7, 2012
This is quite the session-able beer here. Lots of grapefruit, hops and bread in the nose - altogether an enticing bouquet. The body is bitter and sticky, again with grapefruit but also a touch of honey and wheat. Finishing with a clean dry aftertaste that is light and refreshing, this beer could simply be consumed all damn day.

dudewithaplan (6) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2012 does not count
Bottle. Pours a golden hue with a very thick creamy head. Nice lacing. Piney citrus nose with a hint of grass. Skunky at first but after it breathes a sip brings citrus initially with apeppery finish that lasts a good long time. With that it still finishes clean and fresh! Excellent summer beer.

Great seasonal! Straw colored pour. Peppery hop smell with some lemon and yeast. Fruity and citrus taste. Mango and grapefruit. Robust flavors, but light and drinkable. Could down a few at ballgame for sure.

3.9
Atom (2594) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 6, 2012
12oz bottle pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a small white head. Aroma of grazzy sweet hops and citrus fruits, mango, and grapefruit. Clean and crisp, slight fruits, with a mild spicy hop bitterness. Nice summer ale!

kmweaver (3208) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 6, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2012 Draft at Taps Petaluma. Pours a deep, tarnished golden color; fluffy white head with excellent retention. Spicy hops, light citrus, and a toasty malt core; crisp and delicious. Medium body; lively carbonation; toasty, crackery malt and a vibrant core bitterness; refreshing, juicy, with plenty of citrus bitterness lingering through the finish. Awesome stuff.
