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.

Breckenridge SummerBright Ale might be a good session summer beer, but it is kind of boring. Pours a nice cloudy orange with a light head. Not much aroma and the taste is kind of light with a hint of citrus flavors. Not much to speak of on the palate -- kind of like drinking flavored water.

Tasting flight at the taproom in Denver. A matte light gold with a crackery pale malt aroma. The body is rough and raspy. The taste is sweet, sugary with adjunct like malting. Not for me.

Pours a hazy, light gold color. Half finger head, at most. No lacing. No retention. Nothing to say.

Aroma is not much. You can smell the wheat in this, there’s no question about it. But there is some orange peel and that’s about it.

Taste is watery. It tastes like a wheat beer, but not a great one. It’s mildly citrusy. Barely any hops, if any. I’ve had tap water that has more taste than this.

Mouthfeel is very light and watery. Perhaps you could call it a light wheat beer. It’s a good summer beer. Light, refreshing.

Overall, this is not so great. Is it a radler? Could be. Is it terrible? No. Is it amazing? No. Is it refreshing? Yes! So, it’s a great summer beer, but so is Bud Light. Honestly, I would take this over Bud Light, but only barely, maybe.

Bottle from Beer and Wine. Light golden body with fast-receding head. Nose is sweet, floral, honey. Taste is very light, quite dissapointing actually, of lemon, some wheat and hops. Not much to it. Unfortunately.

Clear pale yellow with no head but quite fizzy. Very weak aroma of fresh grains. Very light but not too watery. Bland flavor though. A little hay and a little citrus. Kinda nondiscript and boring.

Bottle. It poured a hazy dark golden color with a white head. The aroma was of wheat, lemon and grassy hops. The taste was of lemon, wheat, slight hops and dough. Nice session brew.

Draft sampler from guest tap at Tap & Screw Brewery on July 25, 2015. Medium to dark amber hue, aroma of wheat and soap and something I can’t place, sweet wheat flavor with strange backround taste of something like I imagine soapy dishwater would be like if sugar were added to make it drinkable. Not one of Breckenridge’s better beers.

Not bad. I'd probably buy another bottle when I'm in the mood for a Colorado beer, but it wouldn't make my Top 5 Colorado-based beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear yellow with a decent white head. Aroma is bread and grass. Taste is sweet pale malt, bread dough, citrus and some grassiness.

Pours a orange amber color with a light foamy top. Scent is a bit of wheat and a floral hop aroma. Has a very smooth taste, kind of sweet and very little bitterness but overall very good. The aftertaste is smooth but a bit dry. It’s a great beer and recommend it to everyone.
