4.3/5 rDev +15.3%
Poured into a Samuel Smith pint glass on 5/29/12
Enjoy by: Sept 16 2012
Pale, lightly hazed golden yellow. Steady stream of rising bubbles. The head hits just under three fingers before dropping to a finger's worth. Retention is thinner. Lace catches several sips down.
The aroma is very nice - notes of wet prairie grass, pollen, toasted grains and biscuit. Hints of lemongrass and a spot of yeast. The flavor is in the same vein, yet with the hops having a wash of moderate bitterness over the finish. Very grainy and grassy. The body is on the lighter side and the lively carbonation lends to a crisp feel. Flavor residuals taper off slowly.
Summer Love is tremendously flavorful in its simplicity. Easily in the top tier of the style. Recommended.

On tap at the Mellow in Greensboro.Poured into a standard pint a clear light golden with a sticky 1/2 finger bone white head.Citric and herbal hops dominate the nose along with a toasted malt base,really liked the big play on the hops.Flavors of citrusy hops provide the main flavor component along with light herbalness,a dryer toasty malt base holds true to the finish.This is a great summer beer,a great hop profile and very drinkable,well done Victory.

12oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold with a big rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is honey, malts and a little noble hops.
The flavor is grainy malts and grassy hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with light smooth carbonation.
Overall, an OK subdued hoppier blonde ale. Not too exciting.

12 ounce bottle, without freshness info.
Pour is clear, dull golden amber. Loose, eggshell white head, Leaves some minor spots of lacing.
Light spice of peppery hops on the nose.
Pleasantly light, crisp and hopped up blond.
Quite dry, bready malts, more pepper infused hops. Quite enjoyabe, as the label says "at the ball park or under a shade tree"
A lot of flavor and character in a lighter bodied beer. Fine summer drinking.

3.4/5 rDev -8.8%
Appearance: 1/3 inch head, light yellow in color, clear, high carbonation
Smell: piney and citrus hops
Taste: piney hops with some grassiness
Mouthfeel: high carbonation, light bodied, bitter, but not overly so with light sweetness in the back
Overall: Very drinkable, bitter beer that I see as a good lawnmower beer. I could have a couple or just as well pass. Decent, not great
