Anderson Valley – Summer Solstice

Anderson Valley has been brewing since 1987 in Anderson Valley, CA and they make a number of tasty beers.  One very unique aspect of Anderson Valley is the people speak a mix of English and Boontling – a mix of words that developed in the Anderson Valley.  The brewing company uses a number of Boontling words to describe their beers.  Summer Solstice (5% ABV and 4 IBU) is a seasonal Cream Ale offering.  So, Bahl Hornin’!, or good drinking.

Cream Ale - BeerAdvocate

Appearance – This beer pours a copper color with a nice two-finger head.
Aroma – Sweetness with a touch of vanilla – no hop presence noted.
Taste – If you like a sweeter, malty beer – this is a good choice. 
Overall – B – Very easy to drink and I have not had many cream ales to compare it too.  I would have it again and I think this would be a great beer to take to a BBQ to enjoy with friends.
Website description – “Summer Solstice Seasonal Ale is not just your average summer seasonal. This unique copper colored ale is smooth, malty, and lightly sweet, with a delicate hint of spice for that oh-so-drinkable, extra velvety flavor.
