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.

Big old esters in this one. All you really taste is bubblegum and the lemon wedge they drop in it. Not bad but clearly an inexperienced brewer.

Quite normal and refreshing. A new type of craft very thin. I have the idea I had had tried some of their beers before.

josanguapo (1106) - SPAIN - AUG 30, 2016
From Saveur-biere. In Teku glass. At dinner, with Chefburger Sabrosa. Similar to an industrial lager, not sure if i’d chose this over that Very watery, with a mild grassy bitterness and a slight citrus tartness at the end. Refreshing but boring and too watery

CObiased (318) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2016
12oz bottle - pours a light clear yellow with a thin white head. Mild aroma of wheat, yeast and citrus. Also, mild flavors of simple wheat, citrus, light biscuit malt and crisp water. Simple, well made and refreshing.

Very generic blonde lager style beer. Forgettable but easy to drink and would make a good session beer, citrus undertones means would be good in the sun.

Bif (2045) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 16, 2016
On tap. poured a clear golden color with a small head. Aroma of citrus, bit of malt and grass. Taste of citrus bit of fruit and malt sweetness. mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish. Light body, clean and fairly bland. Decent Summer beer.

thegreenrooster (4003) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Pour is a clear gold with a large white head. Aroma is a neutral dull malt with a little lemon zest in there. Flavor is again the same some grainy malt with a ever so slight citrus zest. The perfect example of a beer that has nothing wrong with it but it is also not one thing to get excited about as well.

alexsdad06 (9007) - Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2016
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.

Cybercat (5119) - Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2015
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.
