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.

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.

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. Its 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.

LinusStick (3321) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2008
A typical golden ale. Aroma was weak, but lemon, wheat and light malt are in there. Pour was a nice light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was very subdued and a little boring. Wheat, citrus and a little tang in the front with a wierd sweet aftertaste. Not much carbonation which would have helped.

blipp (8616) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Bottle. Pours clear light amber with a thin white head. Citrus, caramel, earth, and bread in the aroma. Light body. Flavor is lightly sweet with grass, caramel, and citrus. Simple and drinkable.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2008
Bottle sampled. Pours bright golden with a small white head. Aroma of biscuit from pale malts & citrus. The flavor is slightly sweet upfront, lemon, slight biscuit, and small traces of hops in the finish.

From a bottle. Pours a light orange color. Smell and taste are pretty bland. Little lemon citrus flavor pokes through but taste more light lager-like than anything else.
