COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This copper colored ale is a silky, creamy dream. It’s 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!

Bottle: pours orange/brown with a medium beige head. Not much aroma from what I can smell. Flavor is equally light with a bit of yeast and light fruit. Doesn’t have the corn finish like most cream ales. Don’t know what the hype is. Below average.

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.

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2005
Draught, Half Time. Clear auburn. Kinda bold sweet, earthy and phenolic nose. Not at all the clear refreshing beer I was expecting. Moreso a malty, bready, chocolatey and cadyish hard to describe flavour with off-notes reminiscent of cat litter, cheap perfume and yogurt. Vast array of flavours globally, but not tight, not well displayed. Mostly thin body, sweetish, butterscotchy and fatiguing ultimately.

I was expecting something sweet and spicy, what I got was pretty bad though. Tasted like damp wood smells. Musty, old, sickly sweet. My first disapointment from Anderson. It did smell good though.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - OCT 18, 2006
Sweet nose with a big hit of vanilla {which I absolutely HATE}. Banana and caramel up front with some lemon zest and diacetyl. Boring and flawed brew.

WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 29, 2006
12 oz bottle. Pours light tannish amber with a small thin white head. Aroma as a very small punch just a little thimble of malt. The taste is sweet and clean, and drinkable, but basically not very good.

12oz. Bottle: Odd sweet aroma. Smells like candy corn. Also hints of pine hops, butterscotch, and caramel malts. Poured amber in color with a medium-sized tan head that lasted throughout. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Medium sweet flavor. Tastes of buttermilk biscuit, butterscotch, and corn. Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Strange creamy finish. Overall, not a fan.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2009
Experienced from a 12oz bottle in a pub glass. The beer poured the expected color of just slightly darker than a pale ale, with a white head. Given the quality of Anderson Valley’s Winter Solstice, I was interested in trying this beer. The nose led me to realize what a sham it truly was. The nose was an off-putting combination of nothing and the slightest bit of staled malt. The palate tasted of canned corn, rice, and fizz. Ghastly.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 3, 2008
2008 Bottle - Pours reddish orange with an orange head, smells kinda like freshly caught fish, creamy palate, seems to coat your mouth with milk, malted and slightly bitter, this is not what I think about for the summer (or any other time of year for that matter)...

2.1
AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Pours dark amber in color with no head forming on the pour. Smell is slightly spicy and very fainlty hopped. Not much going on in the taste. Some fruity flavors, very weak hops. This is a pretty weak flavored beer. Very muted and watered down. Not a whole lot going on here. I’ll wait for the Winter Solstice to come out.
