Game Day Beer Review: Anderson Valley Brewing Summer Solstice Cream Ale
Summer Solstice poured a warm caramel color with an off-white head that disappeared before I was able to properly appreciate it.
The beer's smell was sweet toffee, with some tart apple notes also apparent. As it warmed I got a faint whiff of rum.
Solstice's taste was way different that most other summer beers. The taste of heavy, sweet caramel flavor lingered on the palate, while some lively carbonation kept it interesting. A very pleasant way to while away a hot summer day.... B
