3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 hadnít had this one before now.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear medium-dark amber with a frothy head that gets a little out of control, and mushy lace (also out of control). The taste is solid - a good balance between malt and hops that opens and closes everything from first sip to lingering finish. Quite tasty without hop domination, but enough to at least get the hop-heads to acknowledge it. Good stuff! Recommended.

For what it is, this is a very nice beer. Doesnít try to be too aggressive, has just enough of a citrus flavor to set it apart from the macro varieties and not too overwhelming so it maintains its session qualities.

Copper/gold colored pour. Some decent decent flavor but definitely brewed for the average beer drinker, not just someone who loves craft beers.

Great appearance - orange/gold with solid head and excellent lacing. Aroma is floral and citrus with some earthy elements that fade the longer it sits. Taste is a bit of a letdown - exceptionally mild with some hop bite in the middle and end to prove itís really a pale ale after all. No aftertaste! Easy sipper, but pale ales can be easy-sipping and still flavorful at the same time, like Sierra Nevada and Marshallís pale ales. Summit needs to amp up their taste in this one - their IPA is much better.
