Breckenridge SummerBright Ale

I’ve finally got the blog a little bit updated. This is actually the last one that I have to update, which is nice. This is a brew that Katie picked up for me. I haven’t been floored by beers from this brewery, but I absolutely love their ad campaign (specifically targeted against macro breweries). I’ve never had any of their offerings in a can, so I’m curious to see how their summer seasonal is.

ABV: 4.5%

Style: American Pale Wheat Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Breck Brew’s SummerBright is the result. The craftsman’s touch combines white wheat, two row pale and munich malt with the pacific northwest’s most intriguing hops to create a bright, clean ale ideal for picnicking, evenings on the screen porch and enjoying the whims of the summer breeze.”

Random: I’ve watched about 5 episodes of Gangland today. I forgot how much I love this show.

This brew poured with a thick, two finger white head that dissipated slowly and left limited lacing. The body was a cloudy yellow color with light carbonation visible throughout. The nose was light lemon and some wheat. It was very mild, even for the style. The taste was lemon with some mandarin orange and wheat. It had a lot of flavors that were reminiscent of summer, but they came off artificial. The body was on the thicker side of the style with light carbonation. It finished quickly without any special flavors. It was definitely a drinkable brew, but fell short for me on a bunch of different levels. It was only ok for me.

Untappd Rating: 3.0/5.0
