Anderson Valley Summer Solstice

Anderson Valley seems to be fond of the creamy, caramel flavor. It was distinct in the Winter Solstice and also pronounced in their Summer Solstice. This one poured a nice amber, with a thick white head. The caramel hits you right away along with a slight bit of hops. When you taste it, the first thing you think of is an orange cream soda or creamsicle. It has a light body and a refreshing finish. At 5% ABV, this is definitely a nice backyard beer. Anderson Valley makes it in both bottles and cans. I think a can of this while playing some backyard games or mowing the lawn on a warm day would be just about perfect. I liked this beer quite a bit. I give it 4 out of 5 proper pints.
