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.

Poured from a can. Very subtle nose of orange zest and malt. I can really liken the flavor and mouthfeel to that of a cream soda. Very drinkable, with a pillowy soft mouthfeel and an slightly sweet (but cloying) taste. This is a great beer for the person who swears they donít like craft beers.

Draft. Hazy brownish amber color, small tan head, delicate lacing. Aroma of caramel bubblegum. Taste is similar. Not bad.

rollinsr (521) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JUN 7, 2012
Pours clear and amber with a good amount of off-white head. This is somewhat darker from other wheat beers. Aroma is a nice and sweet caramel hay malt with little fruity hop aromas. This is a surprisingly smooth and creamy beer with vanilla flavors dominating. There really arenít many other flavors other than the sweet, creamy, and malty vanilla but it is a nice change of pace from most other wheat beers you will try. Not the most complex beer but delicious all the same.

bbbeer (637) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Light orange amber, small white head. Aroma is not much, a little malty. Light body. Flavor malty grain, no hops, a little sweet. Drinkable for sure but not memorable.

Amber color, light body, and smooth texture. Slightly sweet, and no real presence of hops. Great beer for a hot day.

BeerSkull (1374) - SWEDEN - MAY 11, 2012
Slightly tangy citrus scent with hints of sweet malt and floral hops. The taste is malty with a very vague tone of butterscotch and fresh citrus. Easy to drink and enjoyable!

Tried twice now, can and draft. This is the most putrid beer I have ever tried from a good craft brewer. Its tastes like unferemented wort. Checking the website I see this is only 4 IBUs, thatís like a contact hop-high. There most be one pellet for each batch. It looks ugly as well, like dirty tea mud with a golden hue to it. Ughh. Its nothing like the deScription.
