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.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear amber, nice abundant off white head and some lacing. Aroma of malt and caramel. Very sweet, fruity, caramel notes and some spices. Easy to drink, but perhaps a bit too sweet nevertheless not bad.

Unique among summer brews. Pours Amber with an off white head. Sweet malt aroma. Flavor of toffee and caramel. More of an autumn beer than a summer one.

TheHopster (1036) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - SEP 2, 2015
(Bottle). This is a weird summer brew. Definitely a vegetable herbal flavor with hazy amber complexion. Mildly flavored with some light citrus. Not impressive from an awesome brewer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HighlanderOne (1200) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Poured from can. Aroma of burnt caramel and vanilla. Solid amber. Caramel and vanilla dominate flavor, along with banana, citrus and a hint of pepper. Slightly sour. Not a lot of carbonation. Decent, but I think it used to be better.
