Summit Unchained Series #6 Gold Sovereign
Summit’s First brew to use 100% organic malt that was malted the old fashioned way: by hand on the floor. The recipe for this Pale Ale was inspired from Victorian era beer. There is definite hop forward flavor to this beer with a bready malt balancing the delicate fruit flavors of pear, apricot and spicy orange.
If you ever wanted to know what beers tasted like a century ago, this should be your first choice in your tasting. With that being said, good luck in finding one.
Summit has been doing the Unchained Series for roughly over a year now. I don’t have the dates for the first series but I do believe it was early 2010 when it was released. There have been no word about any of these beers coming back or put into seasonal rotation. Personally there are a few that I wish I would have kept or stocked up on as they were very good and could possibly get better with age.
Sorry Brian for not serving this in the proper glass, but I was too thirsty and hungry to take the time to wash my pint glass for this beer. Thanks for reading and let me know what you think.
