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.

(12 oz bottle) this one reminds me of a kolsh. a dry palate with a moderate bitter and a slight citrus. moderate carobation. a crisp refreshing brew for a hot summer day. i think these ratings are a bit low. its not a complex brew but the flavor is distinct and quite enjoyable.

Not a drain pour but just a very bland and unintresting beer. something I will most likely avoid in the future.

Clear golden, moderate head. Aroma is stale, hints of moldy bread. Flavor is papery. Hmm.. it’s dead, but it doesn’t look like I’m missing much.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2008 (bottle - 12 oz) Clear golden color with a fizzy white head. Aroma has a light citrus and hop mix. Some wheat as well. Flavor is light and pretty simple. Some light fruitiness with some light hops. Bitterness is apparent in the middle with a very clean and watery finish. Easy to drink a lot of these.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2006
A pleasant enough summer ale. Crisp malt / wheat / citrus, a little sweetness, a little offsetting citrus sour. Not complex, easy to drink. And the low alcohol is a big plus ... this is a lawn mowing beer, a beer for standing at a hot grill flipping burgers, or a beer after a round of golf. Nothing complicated, but a pleasant enough easy drinking brew.

On tap at the brewery. Fresh tasting, light fruityness (black cherries). Earthy, straw-like grassyness, slightly dry finish.

Draft/growler from the brewery. yellow color with very little head. not the best Blue Point has to offer. hint of lemon in the finish. good for the summer.

Via secret santa Summer 2006. I decided to use a pilsner glass on this one. Kinda glad I did because it really shows off the nice carbonation and clean golden body. A thick frothy white head sits atop the beer with a decent lacing. The aroma is dusty grains and light "stale" hops. The flavor fortunately is a bit better than the aroma. Wheat, crisp grains, toasty graham crackers, lightly hoppy. The palate is clean and refreshing and not watery. Pretty drinkable. Would be good on an extremely hot day.
