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.

Bottled. Clear orange colour, small off-white head. Aroma is fruity and hoppy. Flavour is fruity, hoppy and a bit roasted? and grassy. Smooth brew which at the same time is very refreshing. As the desription says, this beer will most likely not offend anyone.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 16, 2006
Bottled
Dark semi- hazy orange/copper brown, good off-white head. Flowery hoppy (Cascade?) nose with some ryeish malt notes. Medium-bodied. Starts with some sugary sweetness, then crunchy hops. Aftertaste is more on sweet side than bitter. Easy to drink APA, nothing really outstanding, but drinkable "summer drink".

argo0 (11535) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 21, 2003
Clear copper body with medium beige head. The aroma is floral, the taste is floral and has a nice rounded bitterness. Medium body. I can't recall having a beer so singularly floral, but the way Summit does it is a good thing.
