UPDATED: MAY 16, 2015 Poured from a can into a tumbler on 05.14.14.A: See through red/orange. 2 finger head with an aggressive pour.S: Strong toffee. Also has peanut brittle, coconut.T: Peanut brittle, toffee are dominant. Coconut is subtle.M: Creamy. Perfect carbonation.O: This was my first cream ale and I have yet to find one that rivals it. It was complex with great flavors from front to back. It was a great dessert. EDIT FOR REREVIEW: 05.15.15. No peanut brittle, toffee, or coconut now. It only smells and tastes like Kix cereal. Itís drinkable, but average.

Not great. Aroma is sort of confusing with notes of malt with hints of banana and spice. It just not a complimentary medley of aromas. Taste is strangely fruit, veggie, spice (not really sure) but then itís punctuated by a heavy brand flake cereal taste thatís okay. Finish is light with a lingering brand flake flavor that sort of odd...

this is absolutely NOT High Rollers Wheat (was sent here to rate High Rollers). Not even close...
"a simple, but tasty summer brew. the summer and winter seasonals are the least complex and easiest to make brews that AV makes, but they are both nice. hardly any hops, light bodied, smooth as hell with a creamy creamy finish and aroma."

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty spicy aroma. Darker and maltier than I would expect for a summer beer. Maybe slight peppery? Good amount of body and flavor. Bit of an odd aftertaste. Almost a slight soapy ness to the aftertaste. Good beer and would drink for a summer beer with more body.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Sugaya. Moderate caramel nose, with roast malt, candy, spice, cinnamon, and vanilla. Hazy copper/amber color, thin head, some lace, and fat lazy bubbles. Cirtrus and vanilla, cough drops, coconut, and light medium-dry finish. Thin-medium body. Gentle. fruity, and mildy spicy. Very fizzy in mid palate.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber color, good carbonation. The nose was a sweet grassy smell. The taste seemed to be really sweet for a summer beer, too much of a caramel taste for me. A light mouth feel which I expect from a summer beer. Overall, not a beer I care to revisit, too sweet.
