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.

Was quite surprised at the color, texture and taste of this SUMMER beer. It drinks very nice. I detected a great amount of carmel in this beer as it sat and "aged" a bit in the glass. A rich, creamy head is certainly a nice component of this beer. It is the first I have drank from Anderson Valley. I found it intriguing enough to want to try a few more from this brewery.
