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.

On tap at a local wine bar, pours a dark copper/brown...extremely smooth and well balanced. I have yet to have an AV brew that doesn’t impress. Well done.

BeergeekKorea (23) - SOUTH KOREA - JUN 26, 2015
Draft at the Tap House in Pangyo, South Korea. Beautiful clear red brown colour. Very little head and some spicy aroma of malt like jujubes. Mild, smooth palate and tender malt flavour of the jujubes and red beans. Also very little hop flavour finishes, sweet and caramel flovours of malts are main.

Fritz123 (1285) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Can from a local beer dinner. Pours a deep brown with some head. Aroma is caramel, vanilla, coriander, and pie spices. The taste was similar with a creamy finish. Sounds heavy but actually light overall. Tasty.

growler6 (53) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Sarsaparilla and nutmeg with a trace of coriander. Light, slightly creamy and a little watery but in a good way. Finish is quick and clean. A pleasant surprise and a nice change of pace.

BeErikS (27) - TAIWAN - JUN 16, 2015
A unique, light creamy ale with a little more than a hint of vanilla. Lighter body and mouthfeel is great for a summer ale. Reminiscent of a cream soda but not too sweet or carbonated like those can be.

Leafs93 (1858) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Pours burnt orange with a small off white head. Aroma is caramel, toast, light florals and spices. Taste is mild bitters and a touch of sweetness. Medium bodied with a smooth, almost creamy mouth feel.

Gachupines (1062) - USA - JUN 6, 2015
Amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is vaguely of caramel and toffee malts. Flavor is light and crisp with a toffee finish. Fairly big malt for a light summer beer. Wife: 3.5

loubar (153) - Los Gatos, California, USA - MAY 20, 2015
12 oz. can from BevMo. Hazy copper with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of caramel malt and subtle floral hops. Flavors are light butterscotch and citrus with a bit of cut grass in the finish. Fairly dry. Well carbonated. Light mouthfeel; a bit syrupy. Overall, subtle, well balanced flavors, very easy drinking.
