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.

Gravity cask at GBBF 2014, 12/08/14. Pours dark gold. Lemon, light grass aroma. Quite dry, with light pine, wood, light caramel, lemon... OK.

Erzengel (5100) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2014
@ GBBF 2014 with Fuggle Hops. Fresh smooth start. Malty ale aroma with earthy hints. Earthy but still fresh. Floral hops are present, but as the beer is quite malty, they don't come out that great. The aftertaste is smooth, malty ale with floral hops, very dry, but with lots of malt.

harrisoni (14873) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2014
At GBBF 2014. With cascade hops. Clear amber ringof bubbles. Oily low carbonation. Some fuel like aroma and flavour. Not good. Dull

Scopey (8552) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2014
As cascade hopped. Cask at GBBF 2014. It pours clear golden with no head. The nose is earthy, peachy, apricot, stone fruit, grain, honey and grass. The taste is earthly, toasty, grain, stone fruits, dough, mild pine and alcohol with a short finish. Flat, low carbonation and general bad condition. Bad.

Cask at the 2014 GBBF. Light amber orange colour with a thin white head. Aroma is subdued, biscuit malt, light parfummed. Flavour is grainy biscuit, light berry hop and light spices. Palate is flabby, watery. Meh.

Ferris (7077) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
Cask with Cascade - Earthy and light orange hops. Clear gold with a bubbly head. Light caramel and orange. Very light.

DeanF (1757) - Nunavut, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
Attractive aroma though it hints more at amateur-hour homebrewing. Very boring gold body with minimal head. Very strong hoppy flavour with a dry finish makes up for the less than stellar surface of the beer. Nice dry finish with a strong bite. Not bad at all in fact.

Bacterial (2091) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Dark copper pour from a 12oz can. Nice white head and lots of lacing. Nose is biscuit and mild earthy hops. Simple taste, a little hops and a bitter finish. Its not bad, better than the big guys.

pschulz93 (8) - Torrance, California, USA - AUG 3, 2014 does not count
Solid Minnesota beer. Could stand more hops. Many better offerings but if it is the only game in town drink up!

drsordr (1429) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Drank from the bottle, so not sure about the color. Nose earthy hop mixed with light sweet malt. Taste metallic bitter up front. Mineral on the early palate as well. Some dank hop. Mild sweetness late. Unfortunately the mineral continues.
