COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summit Extra Pale Ale is not a beer brewed only for beer snobs. Just the opposite. It’s 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.

Very bitter ale with a light straw color. Good for cutting through strong spicy foods that this goes well with.

This beer has it all. And, it’s had it all since 1986. This beer led the way for micro brew in Minnesota. It is the pioneer in the Beer Belt. Fantastic beer, with all around appeal. Solid, not fancy, made for the ages.

boxofrane (2113) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Bottle from Mari’s. Pours clear copper with a finger of sticky white head that leaves significant lacing. The aroma is light but has some pine notes. The taste is lightly sweet with some citrus notes but limited bitterness considering the style.

vyvvy (3996) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Pours clear orange / copper with a beige head. The aroma has a mix of caramel malt and citrusy / earthy hops with a bit of onion and tree bark (at least that what I think tree bark smells like). Medium crisp body with a minor amount of roughness and somewhat prickly carbonation. The flavor starts with dry malt and is somewhat earthy and British tasting. But the hop aspect seems more lively and assertive than a British pale ale. It has spice, mint and dried grapefruit. The finish is dry and hoppy. Quite nice and surprised I hadn’t had this one before now.

Bottle. Orange pour with a lot of lacing. Floral scents. Citrus taste with slight bitter finish. Very good.

Sampled at the Artisans Craft Beer Festival 2012. It poured a light golden copper color with a small white head. The aroma was floral and earthy hops with some light biscuit malts. The taste was earthy, slightly floral hops and malts.
