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.

Tap. I had this outdoors on a nice Spring day. It was a gorgeous copper color with a slight head. The flavor was mildly spicy and pretty unique. I didn’t get a lot of the wheat flavors I was expecting. Very good overall.

Decent cream ale. Description on rate beer says wheat ale. Maybe i am rating under wrong beer because the beer i drank is much better than the rate beer rating.

Despite it’s darker body, this is a light and easy drinker for the summer months. Very lightly hopped, with some caramel/toffee sweetness. A mixture of an amber, a brown ale and some German dunkel. Interesting combo.

Great summer beer, can drink one right after the other. Not too strong in flavor but texture is nice and smooth. Cream soda for adults.

Aroma is caramel and malts. Pours amber read. Very little lacing, small white head. Taste is caramel and a bit spicy. Very thin, but not dry. Ok at best. Nice on a hot day.

Ontbeertaster (2306) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle, pours a bright golden, aroma was light a bit of hop, a clean crisp taste, not too much, but good for what you would expect and that was this beer is. So it is worth a try.

GoufCustom (745) - HONG KONG - OCT 19, 2013


355ml bottle tasted at a private food and wine dinner session in Causeway Bay.

Clear honey amber colourl; One finger head and white foam which lasts for one minue; Small sticky lacing with active soft carbonation; Good aroma of ale malt, with strong caramel, figs, dark fruits, floral, molasses, light citrus and very light grass; Taste of light ale malt, with caramel, toffee, light dark fruits, light spices, very light lemon, and grass; Mid to light body, quite creamy and slick palate; Mouth feel is pretty smooth, ale base is moderately solid, dominated by sweet caramel and toffee plus some fleshes of prunes and dark fruits; Hoppiness is fruity and slight grass nose, light lemon / grass taste, and fairly low bitterness for a clean undemanding finish; Slightly dry after taste; very easy and creamy to mouth.

Comments: A pretty decent and solid Cream Ale - nice body and just creamy enough, good dark fruit and spicy nose, quite nice caramel and touch of sweetness - it could have been heavy but turns out to be smooth, undemanding and easy going. A good one for Summer.
