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.

Okay but not very flavorful or special. Good for a hot afternoon but probably won't buy again. The Derricks ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

superspak (3006) - Michigan, USA - FEB 14, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 8/3/2014. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, citrus peel, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Slight earthy herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon/orange zest, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good robustness and balance of pale malt, citrus peel, and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a very solid pale wheat ale style. All around good balance and robustness of pale malt, citrus peel, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. Aromas of bread and slight earthy crispness from the hops. A great smooth, well mannered summer brew.

HuskerTan (616) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle. A- Wet dog, musty, citrus, wheat, corn. A- Golden yellow color, clear liquid, white head. T- Corn, grains, slightly sweet, subtle citrus. P- Light body, average texture, medium carbonation, boring finish. O- The brewmaster failed at achieving his goal on this one. Tasted like a macro lager with a hint of citrus. I really don’t think I have much else to say on this one.

From a bottle. Pours hazy gold with a frothy white head and lots of lacing. Tastes like dull corn, sweet dough, pale malt, straw, grass, musk. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like musky cracker malt, corn, and straw.
