3.28/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12oz bottle, no date. Pours a clear pale gold. One finger white head is creamy, but doesn't stick around for long. Some spotty big-bubbled lacing hangs on.

The aroma is yeasty, accented by some floral hoppy notes and dry, slightly spiced malt, with a little bit of cardboard thrown in. The flavor is very grainy with citrusy hops and a bit of a metallic aftertaste. Not all that much going on.

It's extremly light bodied. It demonstrates very little complexity, but it is bright and vibrant and shows some action on the tongue, with a subtle berry finish. Very drinkable, just not all that intersting. But, it is a summer beer, and works well as that, on a hot day or with spicy food.

SummerBright Ale from Breckenridge Brewery, another first. Poured from the bottle into a glass, this brew's got no head, just a very finely bubbled skimpy layer. Lacing is pretty decent in the lighter golden straw body.

The smell here is kind of "blah" . I can barely notice the wheat, let alone any other characteristics. Its too bad they didn't give this brew a fuller scent.

I taste mellow wheat and even mellower malts. Virtually no hop bitterness. Its still balanced, though. Certainly not leaning solely on the sweet side. Above all: this is smooth and refreshing.

Mouthfeel is clean and easy-drinking. Very good job at quenching!

Overall a very solid 3.75 for SummerBright Ale from Breckenridge Brewery. If the aroma would've been slightly more potent, I think it would've earned a 4. It sure does the job of cooling you down& wetting your whistle. I may pick this brew up again.

This is a nice summer beer (pretty sure it is not year-round). Not too high on the ABV, low on the hops, light body. The lemon and orange citrus is not overt. Has a nice wheatyness. Overall an enjoyable ale. Would be an ideal hot summer afternoon quencher. Highly sessionable.
