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.

Can poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours deep deep amber with a creamy light tan head that fades and laces nicely.

S: Toffee malt sweetness, a bit grainy, maybe a hint of vanilla.

T: Sweet roasted malt, a little caramel/toffee, a hint of vanilla, nice hop bitterness to counter, maybe some faint citrus and floral notes.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, creamy smooth.

O: Nothing super special, but not a bad brew,

Very good summer ale. I see now that it's categorized as a cream ale, and that's probably what made it so good--that creamy hint that makes it stand out.
