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.

bhensonb (11378) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 10, 2008
Bottle from D&J Liquor in St. Louis, MO. Pours a light amber color with a slight white head. Aroma is dusty and grainy. Near medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is a bit of light stone fruit, a touch of citrus, and some breadiness. It’s interesting, and likely good with summer grilling.

adnielsen (9417) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Bottle @ home. Somewhat cloudy, yellow appearance with a white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Wheat malts, yeast, and a fairly healthy dose of bitter hops in the nose that’s really not very pleasing. Light bodied, thin wheat ale flavor, light yeast, citrus fruits, and pretty bitter hops. Really one of the worst American wheat ales I’ve had.

hopscotch (9365) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2004
Lightly hazy, straw-colored ale with a very small, fizzy, white head. The nose is grassy and doughy. Lemony and earthy. A whisper of green apple. The flavor is very well-balanced, but just a hint on the sweet side... if I were to get nitpicky. Very light-bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel. Short, crisp finish. Refreshing on a hot, humid day, I would imagine. Lawnmower beer. Thanks to my client, Scott Jackson, for the bottle.

12 ounce bottle from Total Wine Lake Manassas. Pours a hazy amber color with a thin creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of citrus, pale malts and a hoppy finish. The taste is citrus, tropical fruits, wheat and a faintly bittter finish. Thin-medium bodied. Average.
