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.

I have had this many times. Hard to believe I am just now getting to a rating. Pours a light copper color with a white head. The aroma is light pine and a little bit of caramel. There is also some fresh bread. The taste is grapefruit and some burnt toast. There is also a little hint of toffee. A decent APA with a little more character than many.

Bright Cascade and Hood aroma. Poours amber, with off-white head. Continuing bright cascade flavor over some smooth light malt flavors. Respectable and quite quaffable, but not too much character.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2005
12 oz bottle - Pours deep golden with a fairly tall offwhite creamy head. Aromas of caramel malts and some grapefruit. Flavor is a nice blend of sweet caramel malts and bitter grapefruit hops. The palate is medium bodied not overly carbonated and very smooth and creamy to drink. This brewery continues to impress me for one that doesn’t get much hype. I’ve liked most of their beers..

DocLock (9494) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2005
Draft at the Drafting Room, Exton. Pours hazy dark straw with medium head. Hoppy, citrusy aroma. The flavor is hoppy and citrusy, with a finishing tartness coupled with some emerging toasty malt as it warms.

I drank this beer after having several "crappy" beers beforehand. This beer tasted pretty darn good after the swill I had been drinking (it was a wedding). Nice balence of flavor, hoppy, but not overly so. I good overall pale ale, and one of the few beers I’ve found from the Twin Cities that I actually enjoy.

Bottle - courtesy of matta. Slightly hazed copper with a small off-white head. Aroma is odd. Sort of sweet but with a nice lingering bitterness hiding in there. Kind of like waffles and syrup mixed with a bunch of hops. Taste has much more fruit than expected. Slight hints of berry, sweet tangerines, and light melon. Light floral hoppiness, sweet malts, hints of maple syrup and light spices. Light toasty notes to this as well. Body is medium with moderate carbonation. Finishes more bitter than it began. Light earthy hops, mild citrus(mainly orange), toasty malts, and light spice. Pretty good stuff!

Much thanks to WaWood for sending this one my way.

Poured a lovely bronze body and a bountiful white head. The aroma is crisp and biscuity… a lovely hops addition in the drying finish. Rather woodsy, hit of citrus but rounded nicely with the caramel malts… almost a hint of rye. Never giving too much of any one characteristic….
This would make for a wonderful session beer, probably one that I would buy regularly if it were available here.

Pours light amber with nice beige head. Well balanced citrus hop and sweet malt, in both the aroma and flavor. Great lacing. Decent APA overall.

Orange body. Extremely hoppy presence in the flavor. I immediately followed this glass with Summit’s IPA and this one definitely is the hoppier of the two.
