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.

bigtaster (758) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Pours a gold clear, very little head, slight lacing. Nose of light grains, slight yeast. Light body, mineral, easy drinking, lightly tested honey malt.

sudomorph (814) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2015
Draft in Minneapolis. Pours a clear, orange caramel with a white head that sticks. Aroma is faint with hints of pine, caramel, and traditional hops. Taste is balanced. Mild caramel, hints of pine, resin, citrus, and more traditional hops. Medium body and carbonation. Clean with a very alight resin texture with a soft carbonation. Overall a pretty standard brew but great after a flight from Toronto to Minneapolis!

Block (1650) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Not too bad. Smooth, malty. Very easy to drink. Light to medium body, flavor, and mouthfeel. This would is probably liked by most.

VeinAle (113) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Nostalgia dominates my perception of Summit’s EPA. While the rest of the kids were drinking trash beer, I was always thankful that our locals had this on tap. For anyone from the midwest, this needs to be on your bucket list.

Aroma of citrus, taste is citrus, malty, pretty easy drinker, nothing that special.

Obfuscate (230) - Minneapolis, - NOV 2, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2014 Born and raised in MN I’ve been enjoying these as long as I have been drinking beer. A solid drinkable pale ale that doesn’t get old after multiple pints. Great balance of malts and hops I happily get these on tap at local bars and get the occasional six pack.

A bit too much hop character and bitterness. Sampled at the store, but what I bought was much stronger in hop flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
