A light-bodied, unfiltered Blonde ale that retains the bold flavors typical of an Ipswich Ale, our Summer Ale is light enough for a hot summer day and can satisfy even the most scorching thirst.

On tap at Eli Cannon's in Middletown, CT. This didn't taste like a wheat beer. The fact that I followed up a Magic Hat HiPA with this probably won't yeild the most accurate rating. Arrived looking golden and lightly hazy. Light white head. Aroma is mild and slightly malty, with no perceptable hops. A little herbal, but I think I'm trying to smell hops at this point. Crisp and slightly dry in the finish. Light malty sweetness with maybe a balanced hop bitterness. The malt wasn't very overpowering, even considering the light body, so I'm assuming the hops were there, but I just couldn't taste it. I'd give it a thumbs up for hazy humid New England summer. Not the most intriguing beer, but hits the spot when it's hot.

12 oz. Can from craft 12 pack by distributed. Nice smell, with quite bit hops for a summer ale. But much appreciated.

Tastes very hoppy for a summer wheat ale. I liked the hoppy taste but that’s cause I’m a hop head, but i can see how this beer doesn’t appeal to certain individuals.

Pours hazy golden brown. Sweet, citrus notes, but they’re overpowered by hoppy bitterness. OK, but not great.

Aroma is floral, hoppy, spicy. Taste is bitter and alcoholic. Spicy flavor with a wee bit of wheat but more hop than anything else. Not too easy/pleasant to drink due to the bitterness/alcoholic-ness throughout.

12 oz. bottle picked up in Boston. Pours clear yellow. Nose is floral with honey; flavor is wheat, floral hops. Bitter finish. Easy to drink but not a lot of flavor.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Aroma is light floral and some caramel. Not what is expected for a wheat ale. Hazy golden appearance. Lightly bitter with some sweet notes. Easy drinking light body. I am confused, this seems like a typical blonde ale and barely has any wheat present in it.

Tap at Plan B, Springfield, 19/05/13. Clear pale golden with a thin white head. Nose is pale malts, citus, hops, caramel. Taste comprises pale malts, grass, citrus, light hops. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light bitter notes in the finish. Ok stuff - basic but refreshing.

(Bottle) I was impressed this ale would hold the white fluffy head throughout the entire length of the glass, complete with lacing. Nice unfiltered light golden complexion with persistent light combination. The flavor is light without being too watery or weak. Very drinkable for warm weather beer.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Flowery, with some earthy and spicy notes, and a wheaty, yeasty and floral finish. Pretty good.
