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.

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.

Draft at Maxís. Clear gold. No head as the pinty glass is filled to the brim. Nose is slightly fruity and grainy but overall kind of bland and thin. Taste is grains, sweet malts, and light citrus. Body is light and crisp. Finishes with more grains, light citrus and sweet malts.

Bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a quickly disappearing head. Nose is skunky. Flavor is thin and beery but as the beer warmed there was some hidden fruits behind all this other stuff. When I got a taste of that part I liked, but when I did not....yuck.

I like most of Blue Pointís beers so I thought Iíd pick up a growler of this... big mistake. Pale golden, thin white head. Lightly wheaty and malty with a hint of toast. In the mouth though, that toast turns to an acrid charred bitterness. Very strange brew, and not in a good way. Highly forgettable.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Clear bright pale gold with an average frothy bright white head. Slightly sour vegetal sweet aroma, hint of lemon and dry stale hops. Tastes a little harsh, watery yet harsh - dry lemon grass, thatís about it, slightly unpleasant aftertaste. Watery, flat, a little metallic - ehh.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 20, 2006
12oz bottle. Pours a clear gold color with a small white head. Nose is straw and hay with some grass notes, a bit of honey mixed in. Palate is light bodied with some light playful hints and a sticky tongue. Flavors of honey, grass and hay. A crispness to it with a sugary texture.

ClarkVV (4058) - 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.
