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.

UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle poured into a pint glass A: straw yellow, 1/2" head with poor retention. Thin lacing cap. S: mellow sweetness, slight lemon T: hop bitterness is more previlent than expected. Slight citrus and flower. Light sweetness cuts through the bitterness to a point. M: light bodied, slightly sticky and drying

12 oz bottle. Hops grass and pils scents. Pours a clear gold with a big rocky white head. Lacing. Nice crisp hop forward but balanced flavors of grass, malt and hops. Nice medium astringent finish. Super drinkable.

Pours golden with a decent head. Grassy tones and malt on the nose. Taste is malt with some citrus. Finishes bitter. Nothing offensive here, but a bit boring.

Pours a clear golden with little head......aroma of sweet bread.....taste is clean, fair mouthfeel, crisp finish, pale malt flavor comes through with little else....points for being an easily drinkable brew albeit little else.

12oz can. Straw color. Plain aroma. Taste is a bit skunky. Light medium body. Finish is dissapointing. Might have been something wrong with it, but didn’t enjoy it.

NachlamSie (3504) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2017
Pint at Atomic Cowboy. This is a pretty clear golden ale. A little woodsy hop nose has mild notes of citrus and crackery malt. The mouthfeel is on the fuller end of the style, but it’s still light enough. Flavor has notes of dough, seems predominantly pilsner malt but there’s a little something extra. This isn’t overly hoppy for a blonde ale, but has a solid bite to it. Finshes medium dry.

Tap at Public House. Pale golden with dissipating head. Light grapefruit aroma. Light bitter flavor. Dry.

Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2017
On tap @ Mudville 9. This is a near clear golden looking one, a small almost casky white soft lacing head on the top. Mild sweet aroma. Trace of apples, it’s floral, mild fruity and in general mild. Nice though. It’s super super watery in the mouth, almost like drinking water and the carbonation is soft to average. Thin caramelly, a gentle bitterness. Some traces of melony fruits. Easy to drink, summery bit a tad boring. 13.06.2015

Bottle. Disappointing. Very weak flavor - tasted watered down. Slight hop flavor and not much else. Sorry I bought a whole six-pack.

Lovely color and fluffy white head with nice lacing. Very enjoyabe beer from Victory. Perfect for a sunny afternoon on the deck after cutting my lawn. A good pizza beer, too. Well done. I will buy more. Thanks, Victory.
