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 out of a can. Nice frothy head, Deep amber color, with a mild aroma of ice tea and some spice. Tastes of vanilla ice cream, or maybe even a root beer float. Very creamy and delicious! A fabulous summer beer! This would pair well with just about any desert.

Interesting beer. pours nice and a decent head. Aroma and taste are both light to me, but certain flavors dominate. The malt sweetnes come across strong and there is maybe a touch of light citrus. The mouthfeel is nice, smooth and creamy and would be a great fall beer......
