Blue Point's Summer Ale pours a clear golden and is topped by a thick, bright white head, which fades fairly quickly to a film. The aroma is fairly light. There's a hint of citrus and a mild graininess.
There's a mild sweetness as he beer first hits the palate with some neutral graininess as well. Fruity esters make a brief appearance in the center, and are met by a mild peppery character and mild bitterness in the finish. This beer is light-bodied and moderately carbonated, but feels a tad watery.
I was pretty disappointed with this beer. I know summer beers tend to be lighter, but this one was bland and lacked the crispness that makes a beer like this refreshing.

[Suggested glassware: Shaker Glass]
The pour was a clear light yellow with a small (less than 1 finger) white foamy head that diminished quickly, down to a thin puddled film and had fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was very mild with a light bread malt, light grassy hops and a sweaty yeast with a mild adjunct (corn) odor and just a hint of citrus (lemon).
The taste was very lightly sweet and just a tad malty, which pretty much was the case throughout, with the finish having a mild citrus presence and a adjunct taste towards the end. The flavor was average in duration, with a lightly tart citrusy adjunct taste left behind on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was light in body and mildly dry in texture with a soft carbonation.
Overall this was a pretty basic light American Blonde Ale with a slight citrus tartness at the end...
