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.

Not a bad blend, but it’s a bit grassy for my taste. The bitterness lingers a bit after swallow.

Theydon_Bois (8276) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2014
Gravity dispense at GBBF ’14, day 1, 12/08/14 as "Cascade". Golden with little in the way of a head. Nose is bitter orange, spice, light hop presence, earthy notes. Taste comprises orange squash, grass, toasted malts, bitter citrics. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close. Average for style, not sure the condition was too great on this one.

asheft (2500) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2014
[on tap at Duluth Airport] Sweet strawberry (Centennial?) hops aroma with some pine and faint toffee. Hazy bronze under a lacy, off-white sheet. Sweet toffee flavour with some faint dried fruit and medium bitterness, hops flavour is relatively weak for the style. There is also a slight, sherry-like nutty flavour. Medium light body, medium carbonation, slightly bitter finish.

Niall73 (1682) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2014
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 (2561) - 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 (13596) - 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 (6711) - 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.

DeanF (1705) - 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.
