You know when you just want a beer but you don’t want to think about it? Rather you want to be able to be outside playing baggo or wiffleball? Or maybe you want to socialize with friends and family? Whatever the activity, if it’s a situation where beer is a second thought to what’s at hand, don’t reach for some mass market lager because I’ve found your what you want! I first had Victory Summer Love at a big family gathering, and downed quite a few straight from the bottle while keeping busy in the yard with my cousins. But don’t take my word for it, here’s the details.
Crystal clear, light and a wispy head that quickly fades? If you didn’t know better you’d think I was describing something that was much less appealing. Having had this quite a few times, though, I’ll tell you to ignore any worry as this is a great beer for socializing and playing wiffle ball!
I hate to say this, because we all know that beer is a super diverse drink, but this smells like beer. There’s a bit of malt in it, very little hops and the well known mark of yeast having caused fermentation. You can tell it’s an ale as there’s a bit of fruitiness to the nose but, other than that, it’s a fairly neutral beer.
So I told you this was a great beer that you didn’t have to think about. The carbonation is smooth and not overwhelming. The hops provide a bit of flavor, but there’s nothing challenging about them. The malt is a bit sweet, balancing the hops, and has a great biscuity flavor. Over all, this is one of those beers that’s a delicious social lubricant. Don’t worry too much about it, just enjoy it! Cheers!
