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.

Citrus and sweet bread aroma. Yellow lager color, features impressive head if poured aggressively. Tastes sweet, lemonesque, and grassy and corny rather than wheaty. Body is on the watery side. Stick with making the stronger beers I would say. Does go well to the beach though.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. Clear yellow pour with a white head. The aroma is full of biscuit malt and wheat. The flavor is similar with some wheat, bread and yeast. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

8/3/13 part of a mixed case bought at Harmony beverages. Subdued flavors mild easy drinkable beer. Again...if I wasn't at the lake and had a cooler full of them, I'd have 1 and look elsewhere. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Poured a clear golden color with one finger high head. Aroma is lemon, wheat, light citrus such as apircotn or peach, slight grape. Light bodied, light sweetness. Ave carbonation. Pretty smooth and refreshing. A tad too watery. Not bad.

nike (878) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2013
draft, clear golden pour, thick white head and light lacing. Faint aroma, not much going on here. Taste is thin and easy to drink, not a lot of flavor. Taste more on the lines of a pale lager, which I thought it was until coming onto this site. I didn’t get the "unique tartness". Not bad, could use a little tweaking for better taste.

Have had other Blue Point winners. This one is not. Weak and bland and not what you would expect from a craft brew. Reminiscent of a mass production bargain domestic... without the taste. I’m still searching for any recognizable taste. Sorry to be harsh... not sorry to warn others of it’s lack of... well... everything.

Fritz123 (783) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Draft at the Coffee District in Delray Beach, FL. American pint glass. Thick white head on a yellow non-hazy pour. Aroma was mild with barley malts and corn. Taste was light and lacking much flavor. I did get the lemon but it had some of the corn taste of an American domestic cheap lager. Finished mild. Mediocre at best.

22 ounce sample on tap at JFK airport. The aroma is pretty bland...not much here other than corny DMS. Not so great aroma. Transparent yellow-blonde body with a medium fizzy white head present. Starts with metallic hints before this becomes full of corn and DMS. No bitterness. Tastes like some shitty pale lager or something. Yuck.
