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.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Orang/Yellow/Slight red depending on how the light hits it. Head is frothy and about one finger high. Aromas of sourdough, malt, not nearly enough hops, some citrus oreange. Flavor is thin and watery, weak oranges, even weaker hops. Leaves the back of the throat dry. Nice lacing.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Poured a clear amber color with a medium white head. Malty aroma with light hop, caramel, and some paper. Caramel flavor, light hop, light bitter finish, and a little fruity. Everything about the beer is low keyed.

sfontain (845) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Lovely orange; medium, white head; lacing all the way down the glass. Aroma is a bit weak--mostly malts, lightly floral; barely caramel. Flavor is lightly malty and very surprisingly hoppy through the finish. Medium-thin body. Nondescript, but very easy-drinking.

ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Matly, not as hoppy as it could have been (but perhaps Iím subconsciously comparing this to Summit IPA). Aroma was minimal, but the mouthfeel and hop/malt balance was dead-on for a refreshing result. Not mindblowing, but the taste is worth a try. On tap, this was like four parts Bells Two Hearted Ale mixed with one part water.

drpimento (2482) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Had it on draft yesterday at Bodega, so the small head may have been a result of the bartenderís pouring. Had plenty of lace and a nice reddish amber color. There was a nice fresh American hop nose. Nice body and quaffable; however, there was a distinct taste of iron in the middle that was very distracting. Itís a good session beer.

mball581 (20) - Maineville, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Cristal clear, honey brown in color with modest head. Light cookie dough and toffee aromas (not really much there). Flavor slightly sweet with a short finish. Light to medium body with light carbonation.

McKnizzle69 (89) - Machesney Park, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2005
Very miled. Initial flovor is slightly bitter, then a hop finish. Very little head and no lacing
