COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blue Point Brewing's Summer Ale has a delicious golden taste. In addition to traditional barley malt; a substantial portion of wheat malt is added to the mix giving this brew a unique tartness that's not found in many beers today. A small amount of lemon is added with one other "special" ingredient that all combine together to produce a light, thirst-quenching, citrus flavor microbrew enjoyed by all on a hot, Long Island Summer day.

I had this at the beach in St Pete's. Pours gold with a white head. Taste light, citrus, grass. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (8567) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Pint on tap at Keystone in Hyde Park. Clear golden, slight orange color. Thin white head. Leaves some decent, kind of loose ridges of lace. Up front, kind of an orange citrus, light creme character, pretty pleasant. Some bready, mildly cracker malt. Moderate sweet taste, light bitterness. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, light carbonation. Mild slick texture. Not much to this. But it’s a decent golden ale.

12 oz bottle. Pours golden with short lived, fluffy, white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of grassy hops and biscuit malt. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Grassy hops and pale malt balanced on the palate. Finish is light, semidry. Light, refreshing brew.

From a bottle. Golden body with high clarity and a very good head. OK mild aroma but better flavor. About equal mix of hops and malts. O: definitely bested by the Goose Island Summer I had at the same session.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, golden, small white head. Aroma of yeast and malts with some fruit notes. Taste is sweet, bready, malty combined with some citrus notes. Good summer beer, crisp and refreshing, it does what it is intended to do; not bad.
