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.

Bottle. Light barley malt and hay aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Lightly sweet barley malt and mildly bitter herbal orange peel flavor. Okay - standard.

A bit darker than I would expect from an extra pale. Lemon and berry on the nose, bread and citrus on the palate. Medium body and a lingering bitter finish. I'd do it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle into a tulip glass. Pour is a copper amber. Aroma is grasses and bubble gum. Taste is full yet crisp malt. Finish is very clean.

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.

nike (960) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2014
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 (415) - 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

acearl (385) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2014
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.
