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.

Pours a medium amber, white foamy head, light lacing. Aroma of bread dough, mild spice, slight funk. Slight cream to a medium light body, moderate hops with earthy bitterness. Balanced with sweet bread malts and toasty cereal malt. Almost perfect everyday beer.

12 oz bottle in Minneapolis, MN. A solid but unremarkable PA. Moderately bitter with plenty of hoop flavor for style. Somewhat complex hop flavor mix.

Hoppy aroma and flavor. Very drinkable, especially coming in from the heat.

ljthiessen (722) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 19, 2015
Can, at Eaux Claires music festival. Drank a lot of this at the festival, and really enjoyed it for a hot summer day. Surprisingly hoppy, with a nice citrus bitterness up front balanced by a light toasty malt character and very drinkable. Nothing terribly special, but did the trick.

Aniela (3613) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2015
From my backlogg: Sample at Great British Beer Festival 2014. Clear golden beer with an offwhite head. Fruity hoppy citrus caramell aroma. Fruity hoppy grassy flavour.

Jow (2698) - New York, USA - JUN 8, 2015
Tap at a twins game. Orange gold pour. Nose is light piney hops and pale malt. Tastes of pine, caramel, straw, pale malt, and some citrus. Light earthy aftertaste. Rather plain but drinkable and enjoyable on fine day for ballgame

This is a good pale ale, but it is not quite as good as Boulevard’s Pale Ale.

Pours a medium gold with a white head and lacing. It has a mild aroma if spicy and earthy hops. The flavor is mild hops and malt up front with a balanced finish over a medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. Tasted on 5/24/15. Bottle courtesy of Espo. This one was ok ... Just an average extra pale ale with very little hops & a pretty bland overall flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
