Summer Love is a great seasonal offering from Victory Brewing. It has the flavor and robustness of an ale but is smooth like a lager. The pour is a great tan color with a white heqd of mediu, bubbles. The head is about one finger amf turns to wisps as you drink, but laces the glass for the whole beer.

The smell is spot on with peppery amd spicy hops dominating. A light yeast aroma can be detected but it mostly the aroma hops from the brew.

The taste is slightly sweet on the tongue with a hop spice toward the end. The hops linger lightly aftet the sip and leave a nice clean aftertaste.

Summer Love has a great summer beer mouthfeel. It is smooth but not thin and doesn't leave a sticky aftertaste. Good for lunch, dinner, or a session!

Summer Love is a great summer offering from Victory. The taste is good and well balanced. The beer is smooth but not thin and can serve as a refresher or a session beer. If you come across this brew in any form during it's short summer "vacation", be sure to grab one and experience the Love!
