Anderson Valley Summer Solstice Cerveza Crema

RATINGS: 510   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.13/5   SEASONAL: Summer   EST. CALORIES: 168   ABV: 5.6%
This copper colored ale is a silky, creamy dream. Its malty, very mildly hopped, and lightly sweet, with a delicate hint of spice for that oh-so-drinkable, extra velvety flavor. A cool beer for the heat, whatever your latitude!

(12oz bottle) Crystal clear amber body topped by a small and swiftly disappearing off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel/toffee, vanilla, evoking candy corns. Taste is the same, with a mild astringency in the finish. Watery light-medium body with a light acidity.

Amber colored body beneath a dense white head. Aroma is yeasty with loads of tropical fruit and cookie like malts. Sweet with some cotton candy like notes some earthy notes and marshmallow near the finish. Interesting, quite candy like but not cloyingly sweet.

Bottled. Ruby, brief head. Aroma of toffee with a hint of red currant. Fairly sweet with soothing creamy mouthfeel and medium body. The flavours are wrapped in layers of soft cotton, creating a pleasant, but one-dimensional beer.

Surprisingly light for an amber colored-creme ale. It poured dark/amber-red. Smelt sweet like sugar, baked corn bread. Flavored was subtle. Refreshing with a smooth velvetly texture. Excellent beer from the bear with antlers!

fuyajo (229) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 18, 2005
Pours to a medum head, carmel color, not much aroma. Very little taste; slighly malty favor, with a clean finish. Not one of my favs, especially for $8 for a six-pack.

Dark amber with low creamy foam. Sweet aroma of toffeea and strawberries. Sweet creamy flavour of raspberries, butterscotch and cookies. Sweet and clean aftertaste.

Perhaps the darkest cream ale Ive encountered. Copper hue with aroma of bready malt spice, hopcit, with lemon as the primary citrus element. Tastes full-vodied for a cream or summer ale, with hints of bready malt, lemongrass, hops, spice (black pepper), and fruit. Nice complexity and wonderful balance. I bought a bottle of this at State Line in Elkton, MD, and I hope they have more when I return this weekend. God, Its great to have relatives around the DE/MD border!!

On Tap at Moan and Dove. Very very pleasant cream ale! This was a delightful root beer float -- but better! Strangely worked well as a summer ale, and basically Im just glad its not another "summer wheat!"

Bottle, from Julios. Good nose, sweet. Kinda cream soda, little fruity(strawberry), little bready, little grassy. Nice clean orangy brown color, ok head that faded quickly to a ring. Sweet flavors. Malty. Like aromas with a little lemon and caramel. Thinner body, lite creamy mouthfeel, bittersweet, crisp finish. Nice summer brew, a departure from the traditional summer beers out there.
