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.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with white head...aroma and flavor of grassy, bitter hops, light citrus, soap, and a hint of grain. Flavor has more of a grapefruit pulp finish than it does a grassy one. Crisp, refreshing.

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.

I had one of these. It wasn’t in the summer. But I felt love. In my heart.

Ah, summer love. Pours a generic golden color and the head obscured the wheaty aroma until it fizzled down. The taste is smooth and lightly hoppy, with a crisp dry finish. Might taste better in the can, honestly... we poured it into a glass for rating of appearance and aroma purposes, but it seemed a bit more flavorful before. Overall, a solid sessionable beer-- easy drinking with enough flavor to keep it interesting. Good for coming home after errands with tummies full of pancakes, more beer, and cheap Justin Bieber t-shirts.

Pours golden, bright. No describable hop aroma. Tastes like a bland golden ale. Fine if its your thing.

Can picked up from Wine Rack at Yarnton Nurseries, Yarnton, Oxon consumed at home Tuesday 13th December 2016 Pours pale gold with a small white head atop. A touch sweet on the nose, I’ve had this for maybe three months now so perhaps the hoppiness has faded or wasn’t really there in the first place? Moderately bitter but also a little sweetness, light fruity bite, some grassy hop, it’s ok but not really doing it for me. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1
