Served in New Belgium globe glass
A: Pours clear straw/gold with a small white head that has little retention. Vibrant effervescence.
S: Bready malts, a whiff of sulfur, lemony zest. Light spiciness, too.
T: Relatively sweet on the front end with a toasty malt kick. Off note of paper joins hay and grass at mid palate. Sulfur shows up, too. Light bitterness tidies up mess and dares you to take another drink.
M: Light body and medium carbonation.
O: The more I drink the less I love Summer Love. I understand that the style calls for a malt-forward approach, but the paper and hay indicate something is amiss.

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
