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.

ClarkVV (3863) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2006
2006 bottle on 5/20/06. Actually retained head just shows fresheness as this is filtered and artificially carbonated. Fades to ring quickly, zero lacing, and a clear straw-golden body. Hoppy nose has straw, dill, oregano and light barley hints. The flavor is wet vanilla and light honey atop chewy grahahm crackers. Rather dulled by some water and leafiness, but quite clean in the yeast and alcohol department. Filtered and unadventurous can only get you so far.

DarkElf (3028) - La Jolla, California, USA - FEB 18, 2006
(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with shadey, thanks Shane!) Gentle aromas of lightly sweet grain and tea-like hops. The mild flavor is a bit more balanced toward the sweet grain, but light tea still strikes a chord in the finish. Light-medium bodied isnít nearly as thin as I was expecting, and carbonation is solid. Medium straw in color with just the slightest of haze. Tiny carbonation bubbles rise in slow-motion toward the surface of the beer. Standard white head settles to a wide ring while leaving only a few broken patches on the glass. Not a whole lot here, but itís pleasant enough and surely easy to suck down on a warm day.

Nate (3553) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2005
Thanks to DMeyers69 for this bottle. Light hoppy aroma, a bit floral. Carbonic aroma, mild sweet grainy malts. Medium goldern amber clear with a thin white lacing head. Light watery body, almost crisp, with medium-high carbonation. Starts with decent grainy malts. Light beany carbonic acid burn, with medium hoppy bitterness. Finish is medium bitter with light alum astringency. Powdery bitter with light sweetness.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2005
12 oz bottle. Clear yellowish gold with a lasting white head. Aroma is DMS and mellow flowers and pale malts. Taste is nicely hopped with a smooth mouthfeel. Finishes a bit of tart lemon instead of following with that nice hoppiness.

beerbill (3272) - Laurel, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2005
On tap. Pours a clear gold with a white head. Light lemony aroma and flavor. Slighty sweet malt taste accompanies the lemon flavor. A decent beer after a round of golf.

Tap at brewery. Clear golden color. Citrusy and light in both aroma and flavor. Pretty refreshing. Would make a nice lawn mower beer.

I guess Iíd say it was refreshing and summery - but it didnít quite do it for me. It was drinkable...just not remarkable in any way (I had a bottle a few days ago and nothing stands out in my mind that was worth remembering). Donít get me wrong, it was far from horrible, just not excellent (or, apparently, all that memorable).

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2005
On tap. Nice malty aroma, some light hops too. Golden, tiny white head. Taste starts malty, some fine toastiness also. Well balanced, crisp, clean, smooth, refreshing.Tasty.

rudolf (2310) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2005
Lighty toasty malt nose, a hint of fruit. Very "fresh" smelling. Flavor is light toast, lemon/citrus. Bitter finish. Refreshing but not worth seeking out.

Golden color, transparent, white head. Somewhat hoppy for a regular golden ale but seemed to be lacking a bit in body and malt backing. Decent thirst quencher. Decent.
