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.

KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2013
12oz Bottle. The pour was a clear light yellow with a small (less than 1 finger) white foamy head that diminished quickly, down to a thin puddled film and had fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was very mild with a light bread malt, light grassy hops and a sweaty yeast with a mild adjunct (corn) odor and just a hint of citrus (lemon).

The taste was very lightly sweet and just a tad malty, which pretty much was the case throughout, with the finish having a mild citrus presence and a adjunct taste towards the end. The flavor was average in duration, with a lightly tart citrusy adjunct taste left behind on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was light in body and mildly dry in texture with a soft carbonation.

Overall this was a pretty basic light American Blonde Ale with a slight citrus tartness at the end... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear golden brew with two fingers of white head. Aroma of weak grain and weak lemon. Taste is pleasant sweet malt, maybe a bit of the wheat, some lemon, dry finish (as in no finish.) Overal nice and tasty, light all around, good on a hot day.

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 13, 2013
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

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.
