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.

Drought. Amber color with creamy beige head, doughy aroma, slightly sweet taste with hops flavor, fizzy, with a sour, abrupt finish. Thoroughly enjoyable summer beer.

Appearance of a full body amber but taste is watery and weak. Has a strange aftertaste like smoked fruit. I can understand the appeal to some that enjoy a thirst quenching beer. I prefer an amber with more body and more bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Finally have some sun so opened a summer beer! 5% caramel amber pour with a tan head.ild toffee/Caramel aroma, a darker color than I expected from a summer beer. Figs, fruit, malty sweet, toffee & caramel but very well balanced. Not too sweet at all, a top quality session beer. After warming up a bit, I get a cream soda sweetness from this. Odd but good...

12oz bottle drank at the parents. Poured a deep rusty orange/amber with a smaller foamy white head. Aroma has no wheat what so ever. Notes of old paper plates, wet cardboard backing from a spiral notebook, caramel malt, old wet raisins, bad toffee and molasses. Thinner body with soft carbonation a watery feel and luckily a short lived aftertaste. Flavor is the same as the aroma, lots of cardboard and paper with malts and caramel. This is a wheat, really??

Elwood (2960) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Serving: 12 oz can from State Line Liquors. It pours a deep ruddy amber with a frothy off white head. The nose has a bit of pale malt sweetness but not much else. Slightly sweet and wheaty on the tongue with a hint of toasted nuts. Light body, dry finish. Interesting.

Tap @ Epic Beer Fest Denver 2013. Pours a reddish orange appearance with a cream colored head. Aroma was full of vanilla birthday cake, light coconut, and creamsickle. More cream soda, vanilla, light citrus in the flavor. Soft mouth feel. Kind of a guilty pleasure.

Pours a cloudy yellowish gold color with 2 finger thick frothy head. Aromas of banana and bubble gum with flavors of a mild sweetness and bubblegum very present.

Although everyone seems to really like this beer I can't find much flavor in it to really like it. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent light copperish orange with white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells of sweet malt with a touch of spices. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. An easy drinker, but pretty pedestrian.

UncleKorm (655) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Can poured a hazy orange hue w/ a large slowly diminishing off-white frothy head and minimal lacing. Mild sweet aromas of caramel and cookie dough. Initial flavor is moderate sweet with a faint bitter finish of short duration. Tastes are orange, caramel, vanilla, malt, and white bread. Light bodied, unbalanced, soft carbonation, watery mouthfeel, drinks like a 2% malt soda pop.
