COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summer Solstice Seasonal Ale is not just your average summer seasonal. This unique copper colored ale is smooth, malty, and lightly sweet, with a delicate hint of spice for that oh-so-drinkable, extra velvety flavor.

Copper. Smells of baked beans. Overly malty. Tastes like baked beans. Caramel. Not my idea of a refreshing summer seasonal, but I’ll drink it while it’s here. AVB is a good brewery. I imagine it would be good with some brisket or ribs because it tastes like BAKED BEANS.

Perfect summer beer creamy and great with BBQ drank around 3 6 packs over the summer kept me coming back. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can. Pours amber, hazy, thin ring of beige head. Nose has pretty heavy caramel notes. Taste has caramel, toasty notes, straw, trace citrus. Finishes with toasty wheat notes. Light bodied with average carbonation. Not getting any spice, a bit sweet, but otherwise ok.

NIce and easy to drink although not so great in features. NIce aromatic smell and quite pale golden shape.

On tap at Pinocchios in Media. Looks like a nice wheat. Smells like a nice wheat. Tastes like a nice wheat. A nice wheat. Nothing remarkable, just an easy drinking solid beer.

A truly, uniquely terrible beer. It tasted more like overly flavored seltzer water with some carbs added. I suppose if you enjoy a disgustingly saccharine punch with an extra sour garnish, then this would be right up your alley.

EdInSaltLake (523) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Sweet, caramel candy aroma and flavor. Not like caramelized malt so much as the little caramel cubes. Maybe some subtle fruity character, and a tiny bit of doughy malt in finish. No bitterness; could maybe use just a little? Nice lightly creamy mouthfeel.

benpickens (385) - Camarillo, California, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Pours bronze; light head; malt forward aromas - sweet bready aromas; lightly tart on the tongue with an unusual bready melony sweetness. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sonnycheeba (3049) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Tap. Pours clear copper with creamy, off-white head. Aroma is cereal and light cookie malts, light berries, and some funk. Flavor is smooth, bready malts forward with some dark fruit esters; dry finish. Light/medium body and medium carbonation.

12oz can. Pours a clear amber color with a bubbly off white head. Aroma of dough, caramel, oranges, and a faint hop spice. Taste of fresh bread, orange, caramel sweetness, and spice.
