This recipe is a bit of an unorthodox take on the style in that it uses Vienna malt and some lighter crystal malts, and mixes in some Czech-like hops. But the final flavor profile is very much in line with the better examples of British golden ale that I’ve tried, and it helps show that you can do a bit of fusion of different brewing styles and cultures to create a modern beer. Coming in on the smaller side of ABV, it’s a great beer for the summer or when looking for a session beer.
Indeed Brewing has been churning tasty brews out of their production facility in Northeast Minneapolis since 2012. With its bold citrus notes, low ABV, and quaffable body, Shenanigans Summer Ale is a fitting ode to the warmest season of all.
