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.

Draft- Rochester, MN. Nice golden caramel color. I suppose there was a nice head. It had collapsed by the time it got to me. Not much scent one way or another. Light mouth feel and some corny flavor. Crispness is all it has going for it.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2016 Pours clear amber with little to no head and good lacing.Smell is faint, a little caramel.Taste is week, caramel, few hops, malt, and some straw.

Pours slightly hazy orange with a large off-white head. Smells sort of hoppy with a slight metallic note. Taste is mild citrus and hints of pine. Light-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Summit Extra Pale Ale finishes with a subtle hint of hops.

Extra from Greg (gregwilsonsti) -- cheers! About as straightforward as a pale ale can get. It’s sweeter and pine-ier than most APAs, and it has a bit of a clash of flavors between menthol bitterness and malt sweetness.

BlackHaddock (6085) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2016
12oz bottle into a Corsendonk glass on 20th May 2016 while on holiday at my daughters in California. Misty, deep amber body, off-white head which was deep and lasting. Good malty base for this flavoursome blend, liked it. My first ever beer from this brewery (and State), cheers Greg Wilson for the chance to try this.

JorgeLee (1694) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2016
On tap at MSP airport. Amber brown colour, white foam. Solid malty background, not overly sweet, with a dry earthy hop bitterness that lingers. Really quenching and drinkable with a reasonably sensible ABV. Good beer.

Delicious easy to drink all occasion beer. Lots of flavor and complexity for a pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jbruner (3852) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 29, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2016 Pours a clear golden orange from the can with thin off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of mild resinous citrus and a hint of caramel malts. Taste follows, clean and easy, simple pale. Decent, but unexciting.

Light, citrus aroma. Very smooth body with a light malted finish. Not a lot of hop presence in the taste.

hfmejias (1260) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2015
On tap at The Ground Round (Worthington, MN). Poured light amber with a nice tan head and nice lacing all over the glass. Aroma of grain malts and hops. Taste is bit malty and sweet, biscuits and some fruits that are balanced with some hops. Enjoyable and super easy to drink.
