COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blue Point Brewing's Summer Ale has a delicious golden taste. In addition to traditional barley malt; a substantial portion of wheat malt is added to the mix giving this brew a unique tartness that's not found in many beers today. A small amount of lemon is added with one other "special" ingredient that all combine together to produce a light, thirst-quenching, citrus flavor microbrew enjoyed by all on a hot, Long Island Summer day.

On tap at the brewery. Aroma of some melony/pomegranate notes, but mostly wheat/grain. Flavor almost entirely stalish grain, ever so slight bittering hops. Not good.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a light orange with a small white head. Aroma of corn, butter, and wheat. Flavor of initial spices with a stale wheat finish. Some light sweet malt creeps through as the beer warms. Pretty bad...

Malty apple aroma. Clear golden color with a medium white head. Light malt flavor in the beginning fading in the finish. Light palate.

On tap @ Coles in Buffalo NY. Pours a pretty plain golden yellow. Somewhat sweet malty nose, straw. Taste was blah. Nothing special. Great tap handle however

16 oz draft, Queens. Nice option for a warm summer evening. Pours a translucent golden color. Aroma is sweet, honeyish, with a good balance of malt and hops. Taste was sweet but not overpowering and palate was above average and smooth. Not a bad choice at all.

I thought this beer smelled and tasted delicious, and this was with a stuffy nose. It was subtly fruity and a nice smooth blond tasting brew. Well done Long Island.

Bottled. Pours gold, etc. Not a bad blonde, actually one of the better blue points that I hhave had. SOme malts & grass.

twitcher (298) - framingham, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 28, 2008
bottle. Pretty bland and weak, whatever style this is trying to be. Pour looks decently average- clear light amber color, decent, average head. Aroma starts the blandness trend, with the standout aspect being soggy bread, accompanied with a faint note of lemons. Flavor features mostly grainy, bready malts. A little bit of citric bitterness and some lemon notes. "Unique tartness"? Not in evidence. Palate is average, pretty clean finish, even flavors.

Bottle. I enjoyed one of these while working in my warehouse yesterday. It’s subtle malt flavor with nuances of lemon and grain. It went down easy and I thought I could handle a few more in the recent warm weather.
