A nice clear copper colored brew, this one has a thin off-white head. Good appearance. The aroma is clean,a lightly malty, and with a hint of undetermined fruit. Decent hop presence. Fresh and clean taste. Firmly bitter. This is a tasty, but not exceptional outdoor brew (enjoyed on my deck on Memorial Day).

12 oz. bottle poured into a chilled mug at Smashburger in Wantagh, N.Y.

Appearance: Pours a clear gold/copper color with a one-inch white head that recedes to film gradually. Lacing is low to moderate.

Aromas: This has an attractive nose with notes of citrus, grapefruit, some faint caramel and a nice amount of floral hops. Alcohol not noticeable.

Taste: This is a good, sturdy pale ale that is well above average. Flavors follow the nose. Very crisp, clean and easy drinking. Good stuff.

Mouthfeel: Leans towards light of body, but it doesn't come across as a flaw.

Overall: Another Blue Point seasonal that is mighty good but leaves me wondering, "Why is this a seasonal?" It's pretty much a straight pale ale that would work for any season. I expect slightly wackier, more experimental things out of seasonal beers (spices, weird flavors, more obscure styles, etc.). That said, this is really good.
