Breckenridge SummerBright Ale is a sparkling, slightly hazy, bright yellow ale. There isn't really any head. It has an aroma of grain, lemon and alcohol. It's light bodied and watery. It leaves the mouth a little chalky. It tastes a little sour with a little citrus peel bitterness. The flavor of alcohol is quite dominant. I really don't have any purpose for this beer.

Served in a can at Northern Soul in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a hazy pale yellow in color with a moderate amount of visible carbonation. The beer has a quarter finger tall bright white head that slowly reduced to a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Overall, the smell of this beer is very mild with light wheat notes detected.

T: Like the smell, the taste of this beer is also quite mild. There are notes of wheat and lemon peel with just a touch of sweetness.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery.

O: Nothing special but a very easy to drink and very sessionable brew. Probably would be best to drink outside on a really hot day - could use a little more intensity in the flavor for my palate.
