I'd say that for a blonde ale, it looks pretty good. Yellow and clear, rising bubbles, the head was almost two fingers and did last for a bit, leaving a white sheen on top and some pretty good lacing.

Aroma is quite citric, very lemony, and has a little bit of grain and grass. Flavor follows the aroma quite closely. It's almost like a slice of lemon was added to a nice blonde ale from all the citrus. There's a light malt backbone, and not much hops (which is expected for a blonde ale).

Body is light, well carbed, and very easy to drink, with a dry lemon finish.

It's a fine summer beer. Definitely good for mowing the lawn or just chillin' under a tree.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The body is a semi-clear golden color. A foamy white head leaves a decent film, with good foamy lacing. The aroma is faintly grassy, light, and sweet. Clean lemon notes abound. Tastes refreshing, lightly grassy, with a good malt backing. Finish had a citrus touch. Mouthfeel is clean and light-medium.

Overall, an excellent summer brew, easily can down a sixer on the deck.

12 oz. bottle, no bottled on date, but I'm guessing it is probably a 2012 summer beer.

A - pours a very light orange color with a nice head that disappears quickly.

S - Lemongrass and citrus peel are dominant in the nose, with maybe some malts that I smell there.

T - A lot of citrus and lemon flavors going on here. Extremely tangy, and moderately carbonated, but it goes over well with the feel of this beer. This probably would be great for a nice hot summer day, but sadly this beer has probably been chilling in the bottle for a good 6 months. The exotic Yuzu fruit juice is a pleasant little novelty that this beer holds, so that only adds to the fun of it all.

M - The mouth is crisp, like an alcoholic lemon lime soda. Or something. It leaves a little bit of a sticky feel in your mouth, but none of the flavors are ridiculously overwhelming.

Overall, a nice beer. I like the citrus characteristics, and I like the exotic addition of the Yuzu fruit even better. The beer is only 4.5% so it is easy sippin for those hot days. I'll definitely have this again.

Bridgeport Summer Squeeze ---4/5.

12 oz bottle served fairly cold. Has a mild aroma of fruit and malt. Not particularly sweet despite the suggestion from the nose. Instead, nicely tart with a dry finish. Citrus (yuzu) more evident in the nose than the mouth.

O: a refreshing and unique(?) beer containing yuzu juice. {Yuzu is a Japanese citrus, typically used for its aromatic rind}.
