This beer produced a somewhat generous white head when poured into a glass, which might have seemed brighter against the tawny or copper-colored body. Its hoppy and fruity nose holds an enticing and enigmatic suggestion of spice.
True to its name, this medium-bodied ale is velvety and creamy—almost surprisingly so. Delicately spiced, Summer Solstice also possesses a refreshing tanginess with subtle citrus notes (tangerine maybe) in the background. A short, quenching and gently hoppy finish completes the experience, leaving the imbiber with a soft sweetness that lingers on the tongue. Very drinkable and well-suited to warmer weather.
