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.

Poured slightly hazy with a smallish head. Citris aroma, but a very light beer, not much of a wheat flavor. Average at best.

Aurelius (4028) - 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.

12 oz bottle pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of wheat, grass and citrus. Taste is grain and yeast.

Transfer from BA review on 5-20-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a lightly hazed orange yellow color with a big billowy white head. The head fades quite fast to give a nice level of lacing. Smell – Aromas of wheat and yeast are the most heavy. There are aromas of some lighter citrus mixed within. Lemon and a very light grapefruit. Taste – A very light wheat flavor greets the tongue. This is mixed with a little bit of lemon citrus. As the flavor advances some lighter flavors of yeast and spice come to the tongue. These take to the taste to the end leaving a semi-sweet citrus wheat flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The brew is light in body and higher in carbonation. Very fitting for the style. The bubbles excite while the body makes it very easy to drink. Overall – A nice light god session beer for the summer months. It is perfect for sitting outside and enjoying in the presence of friends over a long evening. If looking for something intensely flavorful however this is a beer to avoid.

Bottle. Light beer all around with some mild fruit notes. Body is weak but not overly thin, decent aroma. Option for drinking eight from can on a hot day.

On tap. Hazy golden color with one finger head. Wheat taste with lemon finish. Pretty weak flavor. Eh beer.

Dogbrick (7575) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Hazy orange-gold color with a medium off-white head that burns away steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of bready malt and mild hops. Light-bodied with a wheaty and fruity character with sweet malt and slight hops in the background. The finish is clean and relatively flavorless aside from some cereal malt and wheat. Below average overall.

Beerman6686 (4169) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2014
This one poured a semi cloudy dull yellow with a white head. Aroma was of light cracked wheat and pale malt. Flavor similar, pretty bland but nothing offputting.

BrettTaylor (450) - Radford, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Drank from can so appearance isn’t perfect, but appears to be light gold. Aroma - mild biscuit and hop notes, slightly grassy. Taste is slightly hoppy and malty, very smooth, refreshing. Good on a hot summer day.

TXBadger (1217) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Pours a very pale straw yellow color with white head. Raw wheat is the dominant note on the nose; follows onto the palate. A pretty simple beer, but nice and light for hot days.

Bottle. Faint rotten aroma. Plain flavor. Cannot really note orange and lemon. Overpriced significantly. Blue moon destroys this.
