3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a copper colour without much head and no lacing. The overpowering flavour is vanilla then citrus, almost like a ceamsicle. There is also caramel and light spices. Very creamy but not too sweet. Nice

a clear amber-gold thin white head lasts for quite awhile. Taste is some bread and a touch of caramel, with some fruit as well.

Poured from a can into a tumbler on 05.14.14.
A: See through red/orange. 2 finger head with an aggressive pour.
S: Strong toffee. Also has peanut brittle, coconut.
T: Peanut brittle, toffee are dominant. Coconut is subtle.
M: Creamy. Perfect carbonation.
O: This was my first cream ale and I have yet to find one that rivals it. It was complex with great flavors from front to back. It was a great dessert.

Not great. Aroma is sort of confusing with notes of malt with hints of banana and spice. It just not a complimentary medley of aromas. Taste is strangely fruit, veggie, spice (not really sure) but then it’s punctuated by a heavy brand flake cereal taste that’s okay. Finish is light with a lingering brand flake flavor that sort of odd...

this is absolutely NOT High Rollers Wheat (was sent here to rate High Rollers). Not even close...
"a simple, but tasty summer brew. the summer and winter seasonals are the least complex and easiest to make brews that AV makes, but they are both nice. hardly any hops, light bodied, smooth as hell with a creamy creamy finish and aroma."

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty spicy aroma. Darker and maltier than I would expect for a summer beer. Maybe slight peppery? Good amount of body and flavor. Bit of an odd aftertaste. Almost a slight soapy ness to the aftertaste. Good beer and would drink for a summer beer with more body.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Sugaya. Moderate caramel nose, with roast malt, candy, spice, cinnamon, and vanilla. Hazy copper/amber color, thin head, some lace, and fat lazy bubbles. Cirtrus and vanilla, cough drops, coconut, and light medium-dry finish. Thin-medium body. Gentle. fruity, and mildy spicy. Very fizzy in mid palate.
