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.

bhensonb (11099) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 10, 2007
Something of a floral, noble hop aroma. Amber tinged gold color with a respectable white head. Thin to medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Dusty wheat for start, along with a very slight bit of lemon. Finish is sort of wheat, tartness and enough bitter to work it out. Overall it’s a very light and clean beer.

Sammy (8665) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2007
A very nice American pale wheat, with purposeful understated hops and orange citrus taste. This went well with a long leisurly summer record heat lunch, light colour still significant head and citrus hoppy aroma.
