COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The brewmaster's goal: the perfect ale for summertime quaffing, nothing more. SummerBright is the result. The craftsman's touch combines white wheat, two row pale and munich malt with the pacific northwest's most intriguing hops to create a bright, clean ale ideal for picnicking, evenings on the screen porch and enjoying the whims of the summer breeze.

Poured slightly hazy with a smallish head. Citris aroma, but a very light beer, not much of a wheat flavor. Average at best.

$1.99 bottle from World Market. Pours slightly hazy golden with a tiny white head. Aroma is slightly moldy hay, wheat, grass, cheap lager. Taste is a watery wheat/lemon/hay mixture. Flavor disappears quickly, which I suppose isnt a bad thing.

Some fruit notes come through, beer is otherwise light. Good summer brew, could use more flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear gold with no head. A strong malt and grain aroma. A malt and grain taste with some citrus. A dry malt and grain aftertaste.

Its beer, but not a very good one. Too much lemon gets this beer off balance. Clear yellow color, poor smell, no palate.

On Tap at Tullys. I thought this was better than an 18 - thats Bud Light territory. It had a few redeeming qualities such as its appearance and it was drinkable and mostly inoffensive as most summer beers are. Why the unwritten beer rule that in the summer we have to drink low ABV watery stuff? I still want Imperial Stouts, Barleywines and DIPAs.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4761) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 16, 2016
Tasting flight at the taproom in Denver. A matte light gold with a crackery pale malt aroma. The body is rough and raspy. The taste is sweet, sugary with adjunct like malting. Not for me.

Pours a hazy, light gold color. Half finger head, at most. No lacing. No retention. Nothing to say.

Aroma is not much. You can smell the wheat in this, theres no question about it. But there is some orange peel and thats about it.

Taste is watery. It tastes like a wheat beer, but not a great one. Its mildly citrusy. Barely any hops, if any. Ive had tap water that has more taste than this.

Mouthfeel is very light and watery. Perhaps you could call it a light wheat beer. Its a good summer beer. Light, refreshing.

Overall, this is not so great. Is it a radler? Could be. Is it terrible? No. Is it amazing? No. Is it refreshing? Yes! So, its a great summer beer, but so is Bud Light. Honestly, I would take this over Bud Light, but only barely, maybe.

Bottle from Beer and Wine. Light golden body with fast-receding head. Nose is sweet, floral, honey. Taste is very light, quite dissapointing actually, of lemon, some wheat and hops. Not much to it. Unfortunately.

Clear pale yellow with no head but quite fizzy. Very weak aroma of fresh grains. Very light but not too watery. Bland flavor though. A little hay and a little citrus. Kinda nondiscript and boring.
