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.

Shot (411) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2014
From a bottle. Pours hazy copper with a thin head that dissipates quickly to thin lacing. Aromas of sweet caramel malt and subtle floral hops. Flavors are butterscotch and citrus notes with a bit of cut grass in the finish. Fairly dry finish. Light mouthfeel; a tad syrupy. Overall, pretty nice. Not what I expected for a summer ale, but enjoyable.

Dogbrick (11180) - 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 (3341) - 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

5%ABV. Cream Ale. Tapped out Amber. 14ºSRM. Nose has some pleasant phenolic-beery type aromas. Cream corn and corn nuts in the nose. Mouthfeel is watery. Palate is nutty and with black bread and a flavor of nut loaf. There are some nice spicy elements suggesting nutmeg. Finish is beery.

Grzesiek79 (3889) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 12, 2016
Piwo bardzo dziwne, kiepskie naprawde. Niezbyt mi przypadlo do gustu. Z pewnoscia na lato bym go nie zabral bo popsulo by mi nastroj. Jasne klarowne i bez piany. Aromat zerowy, nic po prostu nie wyczulem. W smaku przypominalo nadgnite gruszki. Odrazajace. Nie polecam
