Summit Extra Pale Ale is not a beer brewed only for beer snobs. Just the opposite. Its 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.

Copper color with caramel malts in the aroma. Taste is malty with a bit of nutty flavor, similar to a brown ale. Light hop bitterness. Very drinkable.

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

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 (1650) - 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 (3783) - 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 (1230) - 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.

Im not sure whats so "extra" about this beer. What does "extra pale" even mean? Extra normal? Extra plain? Extra boring? Not really sure, but it does look great and taste great, so thats pretty neat.

12 oz bottle to tulip. Pours clear amber red, small dissipating beige head. Aroma of crystal and pale malts, cirtus rind and grass. Taste is the same but with a nice grapefruit hop flavor. Highly acidic. Mouthfeel is light-mod. Heavy carb.

Keg @ Cuzzys amver pour with a creamy head. Nose is toasty white bread and caramel. Some grass. Little to it. Flavor is pretty mild, milquetoast. Light grass and bread. Easy going. Active carbonation.
