Summit Extra Pale Ale is not a beer brewed only for beer snobs. Just the opposite. Itís a beer for everyone to enjoy: construction workers, stock brokers, farmers, sales people, clerks, teachers, lawyers, doctors, even other brewers. Its light bronze color and distinctly hoppy flavor have made it a favorite in St. Paul, Minneapolis and the rest of the Upper Midwest ever since we first brewed it back in 1986.

On tap at Tracks bar and grill in St Paul Minnesota. I know this one is pretty fresh, because the bartender changed the keg just before pouring. Clear amber, half inch head, nice lace Caramel malt aroma, with a bit of sweetness. Flavor is malty up front with a nice earthy hop finish.

donít ya know; hereís what Iím tawkiní aboot. Oh geez, Iíve pass this up for two months or so. Dares a pale amber to it with a dabble of khaki head, here. Ya, I get caramel and floral hawps. Flavor adds odor stuff too. My pappy drinks this on his tractor in da fields just over there, ya, so... Down the tubes... GO Va-akings!

Gym locker aroma. Medium mouth. Hints of copper. Clean mouth. Overall this is an easy drinking beer with some estery notes from the yeast. Good session-able beer.

English style pale ale. A-nice subtle hops, earthy, grass, and dank. A- light amber hue with a little head retention. Good healthy lacing. T-sweet Carmel maltiness with earthy bitterness at the end. Very balanced and true to style. P-sweetness on front to bitterness is pleasant. Carbonation feels lively and perfect. Somewhat velvet like. O-true to style and really enjoy balance of hops and malt playing with each other. One of the best Pale ales Iíve ever had. I think when it comes to rating beers, style must be considered more. American pales heavy on hops to spotlight hop character vs. an English pale which is based on a palate balance should be considered.

Small bottle at The Palace Bar & Grill in Sauk Centre, Minnesota. Very decent hops here for itís type, though maybe my impression was formed by having Michelob light beforehand. Anyway, a damned nice pale ale.

Pours an almost ruby tinged nut brown color, with a rapid effervescent head. Aroma of bubblegum and nut. Slightly sour, with a definite carbonation on the tongue. I'd definitely classify this as a nut brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours light yellow with some frothy white head. Aroma contains a lot of hop and also a bit of malty backbone. The taste is moderately hoppy with an oily smooth finish. Very drinkable enjoyable beer

Pours a golden yellow with medium sized head. Aroma of hops and floral elements. Flavor has some muted hops and grassiness. Not bad, but not particularly memorable, either.

One of my first beer crushes. Doesnt really hold up to most pale ales these days. Faint bready aroma, biscuit and some citrus on the palate. Good balance. Will always hold a special place in my heart

Orange-amber pour. Nose is light citrus hopping, slightly herbal, with a sweet graham cracker malt sweetness and some biscuit. Flavor is a lightly toasty/biscuit malt backbone with light citrus bitterness to match. A mild, drinkable pale ale with more of a focus on balance.
