2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear, slightly amber color with a moderate white head. Aroma consists of slight pine notes, potatoes, and molasses. Taste is dominated by the mellow malts, but balanced with hop bitterness slightly. Not balance quite well enough between the two in my opinion.

Bottled. Poured clear coppery-amber with a sticky cap of off-white head.. really nice lacing followed it down. The aroma picked up some really odd vegetal character (must’ve been the potatoes) upfront that never fully went away.. toasty pale malts and faint fruit supported light earthy and floral notes.. non-offensive, but non-good too. The flavor was along those same lines.. pale malts and honey at the core with dry herbal and vegetal hits around.. more honey and some sharp notes (carbonation and a little boozage) on the finish. Light-medium bodied with overly-assertive carbonation.. just not a good feel.

Bottle. Amber pour, plenty of carbonation and a stale leg party aroma. Flavor is light, malty and a little sweet. Not horrible, just not my thing.

One of my choices for Super Bowl Sunday- it was ok at best. Overall, i would Summit beers are decent tasting. This beer poured a clear light amber colour with a small white head. Soft noticeable peat malt and hops on the nose. Perhaps a little milk maybe too? Potatoes are suprisingly noticeable. Taste is pretty soft a little light in the finish perhaps.

On tap at Groveland Tap St Paul MN. Clear deep orange color, minimal to no head. Mild and fizzy to begin, rolls into a sort of dry potato starchiness. Finish is soft and mild. Light bodied. Something different, I really dig this beer.

Pint draft at Kips in St Louis Park, MN. Pour is clear orange reddish golden with not much head. Aroma of some sweet maltiness, a touch of grass. Taste is the maltiness, some chemical flavor that is a bit off putting. Palate is thinnish, quick clean finish. Not offensive, just not too much going on. Appreciate the social aim of the brewery.
