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.

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.

ReademNwheat (174) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2008
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.

Smells of sweet malt. Pours a hazy golden milky yellow. Taste is watery and weak, with a bitter finish. Nothing special

dmac (5958) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 30, 2007
12 oz bottle purcahsed in a mix six from Monaghans. Poured a golden orange with some floating particles and a small white bubbly head. Nutty citrus aroma. Medium bodied with carbonation. Slightly malty flavor with just a touch of bitterness on the finish with lots of concentration on what was apparently missing from the flavor. Out of all the summer time bombs I tried I have to admit this was one of the best.

8/11/07 - 12 oz bottle. Nose of alcohol, lemon and malt. A bit spicy. Light gold. Small white head. Bit of lacing. Nice ale, with hop and lemon finish. Not bad. Good on a hot afternoon in, well, summer.

NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2007
Bottle. Pours golden in color with a good white head. The aroma is slightly sweet with a lot of citrus. The flavor is very mellow, probably from the wheat malts used with a bit of citrus. All-in-All, very good on a hot day.

Prcaus (159) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2007
12 oz bottle- Poured clear golden straw coloring. Armoa was citriusy with very slight malt, average hops. Small hint of lemony flavors. Overall fairly enjoyable, but a little above average for summer beers

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - SEP 10, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of slightly earthy malt, floral hops, and yeast; similar to a white beer. Flavor is similar, but the malt is a little funky (or is that what they call "tart"?).
