English Summer Ale

In the hot months of July, what I want to drink most are beers that are low alcohol, dry, crisp, citrusy. I’ve had some great English Summer Ale’s but have only tried to brew one other one which turned out very mediocre due to the UK Jester hops which were underwhelming to say the least! In any case, this one is a real winner. Honestly, I ripped most of this recipe off from somewhere I can’t find now! I made some modifications but would still love to give credit. I will keep looking! This is a delicious beer. It’s exactly what I crave on a hot day.
