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.

ciocanelu (1326) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 28, 2016
Amber color with beige head. Aroma is quite malty with a slight hint of fruit acidity reminding a bit of cider. Taste is mainly malty with some fresh baked bread crust and some grains. It’s just slightly sweet at first and finishes with a hint of earthy hops. Medium to light body with medium carbonation. Overall it’s quite interesting style of beer. Malty but not really sweet, easy drinking and light on the palate.

bulldogops (2250) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 14, 2016
Rating #1822 - 2015.07.08 - Clear copper-amber pour, that produces a minimal bubbly foam even when poured aggressively. Aroma is potent, quite a bit of vanilla, toffee. Taste is malty sweet vanilla, gingerbread, very light and bubbly. This is a pretty good seasonal, and despite the presence of fairly colourful flavours, it remains a balanced crushable summer brew.

R4N5H (789) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2016
12oz (35.5cl) bottle at home in Amsterdam on 07-Aug-2016 poured into a long stemmed tulip glass. Clear dark amber colour with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of malt, spices and floral pine. Medium body and carbonation. Flavour of fruit, spices and toasted malt. Lightly hopped and slightly spicy. Sweetish finish. A little too fruity for my liking.

Dogbrick (11508) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2016
Sample at Daily Growler UA. The beer pours a clear bright amber color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Floral aroma with malt and spice in the background. Light to medium body with flavors of toasted malt, spice, fruit and mild floral hops. The finish is sweet with a malt and spiced fruit aftertaste. Decent overall.

drjay44 (3409) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUL 16, 2016
12 oz. can. Pours an enormously thick, slowly collapsing, ivory head, with moderate lacing, over a clear effervescent amber (SRM 9) body.....nose is vanilla, ginger mild toasted malts, no hops......taste is vanilla, hints of ginger, moderate toasted malts, with light biscuit, finishing slightly sweet with a very soft lightly bitter finish.......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation. This is a very soft, not particularly interesting beer. The additives are mildly dominant, and the malts and hops are well hidden. BJCP 5/3/10/4/5
