Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Summer Solstice Seasonal Ale is a slightly sweet, malty session beer with a creamy mouth feel and clean finish. With hints of caramel in the nose and a touch of spice, it’s become affectionately known as “cream soda for adults”. The unique flavors and superior drinkability make for the ultimate refreshment on a hot summer day.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a long glass, unknown freshness date. This pours a cloudy amber color with a decent tan head. The smells are of malts, cream and sugar. The feel is medium. The taste is pretty good similar to a cream soda but with alcohol!

Serving type: can
