COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The brewmaster's goal: the perfect ale for summertime quaffing, nothing more. SummerBright is the result. The craftsman's touch combines white wheat, two row pale and munich malt with the pacific northwest's most intriguing hops to create a bright, clean ale ideal for picnicking, evenings on the screen porch and enjoying the whims of the summer breeze.

RABinCO (1274) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Can into a glass. Pours hazy gold, no real head. Aroma is light citrus, grass, spice, a bit of white bread and butter. Taste is thick and heavy (not great for a summer beer) with a slightly sticky sweet citrusy mouthfeel, like cheap orange juice.

jmagnus87 (2427) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with minimal head. Aroma of grains, light wheat, and a little skunk. Taste is light bitter. Follows aroma with the addition of some light herbal hops. Meh, even for a summer seasonal it’s not that good.

Aurelius (4133) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bad label, standard 12oz longneck. Clear, light gold beer, fluffy white head that collapses down to a layer of oatmeal consistency. Biscuity malts, west coast hop aroma. A little tang up front, followed by hops, then the dryish malting and mineral notes. Unpretentious, definitely meets the brewmasters goal for quaffability. Quick finish. Like I said in my article on summer beers a long time ago - the ideal summer beer doesn’t try to knock one over the fence, but instead is looking for a bunt single in the hot weather. I’m actually bumping this up a little over its probable deserved rating to reflect the achievement of the goal of a congenial summer brew. ABC, Bull Run.
