On tap at Locol Barley & Vine. Poured to a standard pint glass (this review from notes taken 7/30/11 - lost the notes, then found them...)
A - Poured a deep golden yellow, nearly amber with a foamy 1-finger near-white head. Several carbonation streams helped with already good retention. Heavy lacing.
S - Fresh scent, moderate piney hop well-balanced with an edge of citrus. Hoppier scent than your typical light yellow summer ale.
T - Citrusy/floral hop flavor to start, followed by mild but lingering bitterness balanced with mild malty sweetness, and finishes with a bit of sunny wheat/grain, and a flash of orange. Hoppier flavor than a typical summer ale, and the flash of orange is very nice.
M - Light to medium body, mild bite of carbonation, thirst-quenching and slightly crisp.
D - Very good. Sweet and bitter very well-balanced. It's thirst-quenching and refreshing.
Much better than your average summer beer, given it's flavorful and pleasant character.
Since I enjoy trying beers I've never had before, I tend to bemoan the opportunity cost of drinking something I've already had. But Solstice is one of the beers I feel hardly any compunction about returning to again and again.
