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.

Shot (273) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Pours straw-colored. No head. Aromas are almost nonexistent; perhaps a hint of cut grass. No hop aroma. The taste is surprisingly flat and ordinary for a Breckenridge product, like a typical macrobrew. Slight lemony aftertaste; otherwise, very dry finish. Overall, very disappointing and ordinary. There are many, many better summer ales out there.

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.

Drjohnrock (549) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2015
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

BrewMaster0912 (49) - Marysville, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2015
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.

Pours yellow with a white head. Little aromas and flavors of citrus and pine.Very light on the palate. Very forgetable beer. Not bad but not very good.

Bulk_Carrier (2782) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - JUN 4, 2015
This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a mostly transparent golden yellow color with a slim finger’s white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute leaving some light lacing sticking around the glass in a messy way. The smell had a "sweet wheatiness" to bring in a light citrus to balance and a slight crisp refreshing freshly cut grassiness to it. The taste was mainly sweet and crisp bringing in a grassy edge to brighten the flavor. There’s a slight sweet citrus/grassy aftertaste and a quick slight wet sort of finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a superb sessionability about it. The carbonation smoothed out a bit. Overall, for a golden ale, I dig it, I’d have this again.

On tap at Hopfest 2015. Comes a somewhat cloudy gold with an average white head. Taste and aroma of malt, grain, and citrus. Average.
