Pred from a 12oz can into a room-temp pint glass.
A- medium golden color with a fluffy white 2-finger head that slims down to a film leaving a sticky ring of lacing. Bubbly. This pours like it's going to be filmed for a TV ad.
S- Light grain and malt aroma. There is some note of wheat malt and pale malt.
T- It is a malty blonde ale through and through, with just enough IBUs to temper the sweetness.
M- Light and crisp, easy drinking and good carbonation. Sweet to start, dry on the finish, nice balance.
O- BMC missed out because this is the light, drinkable, everyday beer that they claim to make. The difference is that BluePoint Summer Ale is good, for real. P.S. I drank this all summer long right from the can, now, on the first day of fall, I poured one into a pint glass for the review. Good stuff.

[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...
