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.

Tap @ Blue Point Brewery. Wow, this is a whole lot of nothing. Itís a smooth golden ale but the decent sweetness in the beginning leads absolutely nowhere. Disappointing, and I will not try this again.

Nice and smooth, but lacks any distinguishing flavor. Would be decent on a hot summer day, but I canít rate much better than most macros. Points for simplicity but nothing else

Bottle. Yellow/amber with a small head. Aroma of wheat, lemon and sweet malt. Mostly dry taste with a hint of tangy lemon. Another light bodied, refreshing but easily forgettable Summer brews.

Big old esters in this one. All you really taste is bubblegum and the lemon wedge they drop in it. Not bad but clearly an inexperienced brewer.

Taster at brewpub. I kind of just refused to buy 6 packs of this for the price of their regular offerings. However, a free taster is fine enough and even worth rating. But overall this was actually a surprisingly decent brew. Color is dark yellow and completely lucid. A lightly sweet corn with mostly a refreshing maltiness, canít really describe it any better. I donít taste any lemon as the description says but it was definitely a crisp maltiness. Taste is a refreshing slightly estery maltiness peppered with light biscuit. A bunch of breweries make a light or lawnmower or summer beer but this is actually a decent one. Thirst quenching and recommended for that.

On tap at Dís in Regent Square, Swissvale. Basic pale yellow american lager color and appearance but I think it is just a little hazy. Smell is a little hoppy and with some fruit. Taste is as hoppy as it smells, kind of surprising for a golden ale. Barely leaves any hop bitterness on the palate at first but it is definately hoppy. Cannot detect much citrus except for the citrus rind taste. Medium low carbonation. Bitterness on the back of the throat builds to a medium lasting linger that hangs for a while after the session. A little too much hops for me in a blonde ale. Northen Country Northern Lite is much better than this as a golden ale.

This beer is a lighter stylke beer but the nose does show some decent notes of citrus. The hops cotribute to the citrus and the wheat added makes it somewhat complex. It drinks very smooth and light.

correct me...we are talking about a summer ale here right? well, just like everything else they make they did a good job! this beer has good body developed and exhibited in a quality way it has a hop taste and aroma albeit light and a tasty summer flavor that is not strong and perfect for hot summer days. you can drink a few and enjoy yourself. this is a beer snobís summer ale.enjoy!

12 oz bottle. Poured an orange body with a strange smell. Long island? The taste was dry and a bit hoppy. Didnt really taste the citrus in it all that much.

(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.
