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.

(12oz can). Pours a clear amber color with decent offwhite head. Some lacing an somewhat active carbonation. Aroma of caramel, bread, and some fruits. Taste is sweet with some light bitterness. A bit of spice and fruit as well. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Finish is smooth. This is a pretty flavorful beer with some substance. I’m not sure its a thirst quencher though as I feel like I’d get filled up easily.

Serving type: can
