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.

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.

Well... to finish out the end of American beer month, I will sample and rate this pale ale. Mild aroma of dry hops and somewhat herbal in the nose. Juicy with mild hoppiness for flavors, certainly not over the top. Finishes out grapefruity and dry. A good example of a mild pale ale.

Let me start off by admitting that I dislike pale ales in general. Having said that, this beer is pretty good. The nose was that of an evergreen that grows citrus fruits. The colour was a reddish tinge, more of an amber really. All similarities in my mind to a pale ale ended there, when I first sipped this ale. Very nice mouthfeel, not too heavy or light. The oily piney bitter taste I expected never appeared. Sure, it’s more bitter than a brown ale or a porter, but for an American Pale Ale, this was quite mild. I now have an open-mindedness to experiment more with this style, and would have no qualms about introducing it to other anti-hopheads like myself in the future.

I’ve lived many places and tried many beers but I keep coming back to this one. What it lacks in distinctiveness it more than compensates for in it’s universal appeal. It always tastes good to me, regardless of weather, food-pairings, or mood. The dry-finish and clean texture make this an every day, always-in-the-fridge beer.

This was the pale ale that introduced me to the genre. Great for a beginner, average, but well crafted.

From draft. Light orange body with a thin lacing head. Light, thin aroma of citrus fruits. Hoppy, fruity, floral flavor that seemed to blend a touch of apricot. Dry hoppy finish.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2007 Pours a hazy golden color. Smells of hops, pine, and citrus. Tastes much the same. A bit metallicy in the finish and very carbonated. This is a refreshing and delightful example of the style.
