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.

Smell - Sweet, very malty, and grains.

Taste - Has a subtle sweetness, pale malts, very grainy, bready, and has somewhat of a metallic flavor.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied with high carbonation.

Overall - This is a good beer. Nice and crisp.

Draught @ Headkeeper: This one pours a clear golden color. There was almost no head and no lacing on mine. The aroma is lighter but still nice. Faint malts, a hint of fruit and floral notes. The taste is nice. Hint of sweetness, faint fruits and some malts. Nice and refreshing.
