COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bif (1564) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle- pours a nice copper color with a good head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of mild citrus with malt caramel sweetness with a bit of grain and spice. Taste of citrus with a mild caramel sweetness some grain and bit of spice. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, smooth, with a bit of character and nicely balanced. Nice beer for the style although it seems more of a English style Pale Ale. No worry still worth a try.
