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.

Pours a dark golden color. Smell is sweet and malty. Taste is very mild, some light malts. Overall a decent beer.

tfontana (806) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 2, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Cigarette City. Appearance is cloudy pale yellow with greenish tinge, mild sparkle, small white ring of head and no lacing. Aroma is funky, musty tart over cracker malt. Taste is as aroma with mild citrus. Palate is medium bodied with watery texture, soft-to-average carbonation and finish like taste. Overall, thankfully this was cold so it was refreshing but the tart quality is not a plus.

glennmastrange (2715) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 17, 2016
Bottle. Light grain for the malt, herbs for the hops, dried leaves for the yeast, with boiled vegetables and corn in the background. Head is small, frothy, white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is clear gold. Flavor starts moderately acidic, then finishes moderately acidic and lightly bitter. Palate is light, watery, with a fizzy carbonation and a lightly astringent finish. Nothing really good to say about this Golden Ale, just a blah beer.

Bulk_Carrier (4103) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - NOV 5, 2016
The appearance was a golden color with a decent transparency about it. Mild carbonation was seen rising. Fizzy white head. The aroma leans to some crisp sweet grassy hops. Some earthy bitterness tries to come across. Light lemon sweetness. The flavor rides on a light lemon sweetness. Lemon drop sugary sweet aftertaste with a sticky sweet finish, and actually disheartening. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation seems level for what it is. Overall, flavor seems a bit too sweet, imbalance with some cloying sweetness. Hard to say if I would come back to, I want to say most likely not. And dont judge my review on the date I uploaded this because I have had this more than enough times fresh.

shrubber85 (10885) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 13, 2016
Bottle. Lactic lemon, biscuit malt, and straw aroma. Golden yellow with nice white head. Lightly sweet citrus, milky biscuit, and lightly bitter straw flavor. Nice body. Decent.

erickok (5524) - Leuven, BELGIUM - OCT 9, 2016
Pale, headless, ugly. Simplistic, sweet orange, clean fermentation. Prickly but artificial carbonation. Okay bitterness for the style, but devoid of any complexities, and most certainly of any fermentation character. Poor stuff, very poor. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bire)

Quite normal and refreshing. A new type of craft very thin. I have the idea I had had tried some of their beers before.

josanguapo (1225) - SPAIN - AUG 30, 2016
From Saveur-biere. In Teku glass. At dinner, with Chefburger Sabrosa. Similar to an industrial lager, not sure if id chose this over that Very watery, with a mild grassy bitterness and a slight citrus tartness at the end. Refreshing but boring and too watery
