Enjoy Poolside or Sprinklerside. Breck Brew's SummerBright is the result.

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of wheat, pale malt, hint of sweet malt, hint of yeast, and a hint of hop. Fits the style of an American Pale Wheat Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of wheat, pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of hop, and a hint of yeast. Overall, decent appearance, aroma, and blend. The body strength is lacking.

A: hazy; golden - darker than most summers and wheats; a one finger pillowy white head that receded quickly; no lacing;

S: lemon; wheat;

T: wheat with a little hops; lemon is less pronounced that in the nose; a touch of lemon rind bitterness in the finish;

M: light bodied; moderate carbonation; crisp;

O: refreshing; I'm not usually a fan of summer or wheat beers; this is one of the ones I like; I think it's the touch of bitterness in the finish;

Pours a pale straw color with a half finger of head that dissipated quickly. The nose was yeasty. The body was light. The flavor profile was fairly bland with a semi-interesting mild dryness on the finish.

I was looking for something relatively light today and this fit the bill more or less – nothing to write home about or repeat.
