Draft at Kip’s, St. Louis Park, MN. Summit did something that isn’t a hop-monster -- knock me over with a feather. In fact, this is a malt-monster with nice balance - a slightly-bitter finish. Very drinkable. Summit, you made a beer I want to drink... Wow.

Picked up a bottle from Cellars LexLarp in St Paul, MN. What was this doing in the "import beer" section? Oh well... Pours a crisp clear reddish amber with a white head. Aroma of sweet bread and potatoes. Could use some sour cream! Flavor of a watered down ale with some earthy malt added. Finish is light and watery. Ah so so brew.

Refreshing and tasty, if a bit light. It lacks the unpleasant bitterness I usually associate with Summit’s brews. On draft at Old Chicago in Eagan, 3/7/07.

Malt, hops, and starch fill the aroma and taste. A very mild bitterness mixes with a nice malt throughout the travel in the mouth. The flavor also has a nice smoothness and taste from the potatoes.

This beer pours a pretty orange-red amber color. It has a sweet aroma and an even sweeter taste with a slight metallic finish. All in all an enjoyable reasonably priced brew.

Draught at Kieran’s Irish Pub in Minneapolis, MN. Clear light amber color with thin white head that left some lace on the glass. Attractive malty caramel aroma and flavor with an almost buttery flavor at the end. Slightly sweet on the tongue. Very good beer on tap.

This is a true mastery of beer making. Think of a beer looking like Killian’swith a half way decent aroma of toasted caramel malts. The taste is...absent. I could probably chug this, it’s just not anything particularly exciting, or interesting.

light and refreshing, not much here to speak of though. cannot say i disliked it, just happened to be the free drink of choice at a benefit. a safe brew for those not expecting much and not looking for carbonation.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hyper-active carbonation here, in this clear amber-hued brew, slim head, soon disappearing.
Flat, vegetal nose, bright, but blase’. Not especially pleasing.
In the mouth: hum meets drum. Gone in a quickness, flavor peeps up and disappears. Lightly malty, caramel, then toasty dry, but never too tasty. Potatos seem to occupy a void, but not fill it with anything.
Light bodied, with a null field of a finish, mostly water and echoes of vegetation.
I so want to like this, but is offers little rewards, and does not give any pleasurable flavors at all. Not really worth the drinking.
