Anderson Valley Summer Solstice

Today I went to Slater's 50/50 with my friends and to drink I ordered a beer flight.

Smell: The Anderson Valley Summer Solstice smelled like an ale.
Color: It had a dark red color.
Taste 1: Wow, this beer had a nice cream taste; it tasted a bit darker than the average cream soda.
Taste 2: Nice, this was probably the second time I had a cream ale at Slater's 50/50 and have it absolutely taste like cream soda, though this one tasted less so like cream soda than the Mother Earth Cali' Creamin'.
Taste 3: The beer tasted sweeter now than it did before - either my palate adjusted to the bitterness or the Beach City Beach de Garde affected my perception of the beer's sweetness.
