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.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2012 Draft at Jerrys. Copper with good, creamy, beige head / Mild nose of spun sugar, bread dough, and citrus / Light to medium body, toasty and sweet, yeasty & malty but cut with acidity, with light finish / Flavors of bread dough, candied citrus, lemon, sugar rock candy, and wheat / Peculiar and disjointed, reminiscent of a shandy.

Can. Pours clear amber with a small, frothy off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is spicy wheat malt, light lemon notes, and light earthy hops. Flavor is malt forward with light hops and bitterness, lemon notes and a sweet finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Sweet aroma. Malty and caramel flavors. Clear copper color. Just a hint of spice. Very good summer beer without the light color. Yum.

Wittales (760) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Appearance was hazy orangish amber caramel with creamy diminishing off white 1 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are sweet caramel malts with that beautiful mineral AV smell.Floral , herbal, spicey hops with slight wheat with touches of fruity yeasts. Taste are sweet malty with a touch of wheat. The citrusy lemon and orange hops come to play. Palate was crispy smooth light CO2 with light-meduim body. The balanced average length finish is gooood. What a wonderful summer brew...

12 oz. Draft at Primanti Brothers. Very big caramel taste, which surprised me. Great appearance, cloudy bronze with a decent head and thick lacing. Medium palate, creamy. Caramel fronted taste, sweet, with a wheat brown backbone.
