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.

Draft sample from notes. Pours a clear golden amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have mild citrus favoring oranges, pale bready malts, grass, lightly tart, like most golden ales just not much to get excited about.

Pours clear amber with a frothy and typical snow-white head. Aroma presents wheaty and fruity tones, not strong but inviting. Typical flavor has wheaty, malty and fruity tones, nothing special but refreshing. Mouthfeel features typical body and not much fizz. Still, a good way to celebrate Summer, or bring a little summer into the colder months.

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 25, 2015
On tap at mall pizzeria in Jersey. Poured a mostly clear light gold. Aroma was of pale malts, a bit grainy, and faint citrus. Surprisingly light bodied. Flavor matches the aroma, but not much flavor. In some ways, a throw back to the days when every brewpub tried to brew some inoffensive yellow ale for the masses so as to avoid scaring away the Budmilloor drinkers. Can’t say I miss those brews.

I had this at the beach in St Pete's. Pours gold with a white head. Taste light, citrus, grass. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Pint on tap at Keystone in Hyde Park. Clear golden, slight orange color. Thin white head. Leaves some decent, kind of loose ridges of lace. Up front, kind of an orange citrus, light creme character, pretty pleasant. Some bready, mildly cracker malt. Moderate sweet taste, light bitterness. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, light carbonation. Mild slick texture. Not much to this. But it’s a decent golden ale.

12 oz bottle. Pours golden with short lived, fluffy, white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of grassy hops and biscuit malt. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Grassy hops and pale malt balanced on the palate. Finish is light, semidry. Light, refreshing brew.

From a bottle. Golden body with high clarity and a very good head. OK mild aroma but better flavor. About equal mix of hops and malts. O: definitely bested by the Goose Island Summer I had at the same session.
