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.

Pours a hazy copper (almost red) with nice amount of creamy foam. Really unique looking beer. Surprisingly subtle aroma, bit of caramel, sweet malts, and vanilla. Not much of a nose. Very sweet taste, hit right in the mouth with vanilla and candied sugar. Backbone of caramel, toasted malt, and light fruit notes. Definitely a dessert beer, but still light enough to not be overwhelming. I actually like this beer. I wouldn’t seek it out, but I would certainly drink one handed to me. Interesting summer beer.

Tap at Grub. Strawberry, ice cream, fruity. Not sure what they’re going for here. It’s alright though, but maybe a bit too sweet. Seems very different from the deScription above.

Svesse (7262) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2015
(Draught at Craft & Draft, Amsterdam, 28 Aug 2015) Reddish amber colour with dense, beige head. Malty, spicy nose with notes of caramel, red fruit, toffee and the soft drink Portello. Malty, spicy taste with caramel, toffee, toast and a fairly sweet finish with a gentle spicy bitterness. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Spicy and sweet, but quite tasty. Quite nice.

Unique among summer brews. Pours Amber with an off white head. Sweet malt aroma. Flavor of toffee and caramel. More of an autumn beer than a summer one.
