slight vanilla finish, also mixed with a roasted hoppy aftertaste, goes down smooth and creamy, great head, very nice pils. jbarb1226 (1) - USA - JUN 21, 2006 does not count
Served in pint class. Darker color than expected-kind of a burnt orange color. Not much going on int he aroma, mostly malt or wheat. Excellent flavor though with a hint of caramel. A little on the sweet side but an excellent summer beer. Very creamy mouthfeel as well. carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 27, 2008

Pours a reddish amber with a medium tan head. Sweet malts on the nose, a really, really tasty creamy brew, I wish I had more of these. liinis (1773) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2010
Heavenly good light and refreshing and still rich in flavor. Delicious hops.

Can at Jerry’s. Copper with decent, creamy beige head / Earthy nose of sweet malt, bread, and spun sugar / Medium body, smooth and creamy, moderately sweet, with excellent balance and dry finish / Flavors of bread, toast, vanilla, and spun sugar, with notes of orange and pineapple / A distinctive cream ale, and a cut well above the usual Saturday night 6-pack style. xav33 (313) - Midland, MI, Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2007
Anderson Valley Summer Solstice Cerveza Crema
12 oz bottle
Moderate pour in a shaker
Recent brewing, enjoyed 07/07
Poured a dark orange amber with a beige semi-frothy somewhat lasting head.
Smelt of moderate oranges, caramel, toasted grain.
Taste was upfront strong bitter toasted grain and grassy hops and moderate orange sweet and sour followed by more of the same, with a flowery yeast kick and a diminished orange sweet and sour, on an average length finish.
Palate was light to medium bodied, slightly creamy and effervescent.
Overall, a summer beer that carries a fresh orange taste. On the darker side, which makes it even more intriguing. Very cool label with the bears with antlers and sunglasses. Cryptic writing under the cap:"Chipmunk the heelch of the Boont steinbier". Huh? Hilarious. I’m happy with this one, except the price ($11.99/6pk).

I’m still not sure if I like it, but it really does taste like a lager mixed with a good cream soda... I’ll have to have another Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 28, 2011
This is perfect and beautifully summery, the nutty, wholesome flavour lasts forever in the mouth. Amazing caramel and a hint of satsuma make this so wonderful and mellow that I could drink it for ever. tron3000atl (72) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2012
