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.

Not a big pale ale fan, but I liked this. A cloudy yellow body with an aroma of hops & spice. Taste is dry, crisp & hoppy. Slightly bitter, yet clean finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had at Foamfest in Fayetteville. Pours yellow copper. Aroma is grassy with slight floral. Nice solid beer.

12oz bottle, not your typical apa by today standards. Decent hop malt balance, not as hoppy. Leans towards the pale lager taste, thin, a little watery, but good for the flavors.

gopherfan99 (359) - CROATIA - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle, pours copper with an off white head, has a bit of a citrusy aroma, flavor is a citrus bitter with a hint of malt, not really an "extra" pale but a decent beer

Clear yellow pour, white head, not much to it, underwhelming on several levels particularly on hops, a little skunky bitter, aight

Not a bad beer. Emphasis on being "extra pale" though. Itís not supposed to be super hoppy, but Iíd have liked a little more.

Fine. Could use a little more bite to it, but the fresh round flavor at the end is nice. Overall, a daily drinker that you canít complain about.

JStax (2853) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2014
Draft pour. Clear copper with a thin, soapy looking head of white foam. Aroma is grassy, soapy, and floral. Taste is mildly bitter. A bit sweet on the finish. Medium carbonation.

rumproasts (2734) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2014
tap. Pale golden with small head. Very light malt body with a good amount of hops. Somewhat one dimensional, but whatís there is done well.

EithCubes (4725) - New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2014
Bottle. Noe of caramel and crystal malt, light smoke, faint fruit from the yeast, a touch gummy. Pours very lightly hazy orange with a dense and rocky off-white head. Taste is medium seet with low bitterness, some bread in with the crystal malt, has some dank and herbal hoppiness, faint stripping in with light dough, fain spice and even chocolate (dark caramel, at least). Some nuttier character with volume, and the earthy, herbal hop notes rule the finish and aftertaste, along with the dough/toasted malt. Crisp and very refreshing medium body, lightly oily but really just spilling over with round malt, an intense feel to match the flavor. If this were just a smidgen drier, Iíd love it even more, but as it is, I would absolutely reach for this one.
