COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An easy-drinking, gorgeous pale, made with primarily Amarillo hops. Not quite as light as Miller High Life but thirst-quenching nonetheless. AKA Solstice Pale Ale.

Canned: earlier. Pours a nice light grain yellow with a sheet of white atop the ale and below the spotty lace. Smells of grapefruit, mangos, peaches, hints of caramel malt and some resin. Nice nose. Really nice nose. Flavor is full of hops - carrying weed and bitterness. The fruits kinda lie flat in the flavor when measured against the nose. The malts are reserved and refreshing with just a slight hint of wood and caramel. Body is unusual IMO, medium with a fine moderated carb gives this a creamy feel. Oddly, I’d like this on nitro probably. Nice beer with a slightly divergent nose/flavor profile. Serving type: can 08-03-2012

Basically like drinking a bottle of delicious honey. Bitterness balances out the sweetness somewhat. A little under carbonated for my taste. Decent. Pair with biscuits.

(draught at brewery) clear gold, nice lacing, wispy white bubbles. Nose is crisp, german hops, mildly malty nose, cream, biscuit, light butter too. Taste is earthy hops, dry, crackers, light butter, very earthy dry finish.

On tap at fremont. Nice hoppy aroma and flavor, but light enough to drink like 10 in the summer. Really good

mcberko (5369) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 24, 2013
On tap at BevX360, pours a hazy blonde with a small white head. Aroma of light hops, some light tangerine and biscuity malt. Flavour is refreshingly and lightly hoppy, with some light fruity notes. Not that interesting, but highly drinkable and a nice summer beer. Solid.

This is one of my favorite brews for hot summer days. It has a really bright punch of hops - almost like a session IPA - with just the right caramel malt base to balance it out. Really easy to drink, slightly hop-forward (love those amarillo hops), and just exactly how a summer ale should taste.

Draft at the source. Pale yellow color, bright white head, solid lacing. Aroma of lemon pepper. Taste is similar, fruity finish.

yngwie (12721) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2013
On tap. A lightly hazy, golden-orange beer topped by a cute, off-white head. Lighlty citrusy aroma with pine cone hints, some flowery notes and a pleasant maltyness. Some bitterness in the flavor, just enough to keep it interesting, and the maltyness is just serving as a foundation for the hops. Medium body, quite dry, and with a nice level of carbonation. Dry, hop driven finish. Sure not a beer you enjoy by the fireplace in the winter, but as I had it, on an oceanside restaurant it’s quite enjoyable and it slakes the thirst. 130702

Draught. Pours a clear golden color with a moderate white head on it. Nose has some fairly strong citrus elements to it, and was rather inviting. Taste was very crisp, with some nice citrus to it and a pleasant bitterness. Very drinkable beer, I think.
