Victory Summer Love ....

Tonight I will try Summer Love Ale from Victory Brewing Company.  Twelve ounce bottle.  The web site shows 5.2% ABV.  It is a seasonal, available May through August.

This beer poured with a small, almost white head.  Beer color is a light to medium golden yellow.  Almost perfectly clear, with a small amount of carbonation.  The aroma has a nice citrus, probably more lemon than anything.  There also seems to be a floral note mixing in with the citrus.  Medium bodied.  The taste has some lemon, and maybe a little grapefruit as well.  The hops also have a nice floral quality, not cloying, that goes well with the citrus.  Definitely a little more carbonation to the mouth feel than it appeared in the glass.  A little bitterness builds at the end, with a somewhat dry finish, that lingers around for the aftertaste.  A nice mix of interesting, tasty hops!
