If you put the Summit pilsner head to head with this beer, Iím not sure I could tell the difference. This is a decent beer for the style. Iím sure there are some subtle differences, but to me it tastes more like a pilsner. Hop level is higher than many in this style.

Smell is very floral. Color is Straw with a nice white head. Taste is lightly citrus with a very small bitter bite. Nice and relaxing.

Bottle. Pours blonde with white head, some lacing. Nose is fresh and floral, backed by signature summit malt bit and mildly doughy yeast. Flavor is mild grainy malt upfront with some mildly citrus hops in the middle and finish. Bitterness lingers in the finish - this reminds me of a fresh British bitter, which speaks volumes about it.

From a buck & 1/2 bottle, clean looking attractive beer. Pillowy head. Smells like reserved lager. Ooo, initial bud impact us more than expected for mannered golden or blondie. Good co2 however and my palate soon gets a little more used to this. Yes, becomes a little friendly towards the middle but some of those mild negative ale attributes remain. Let me knock them down like a whack a mole with a bigger swig, eh? Over all experience was pretty good for an ale, heheh.

Can, at Eaux Claires music festival. Likely this would have been better properly poured and evaluated, but just drinking out of a can, this smelled alright - fruity and floral, light but decent. The flavour though was too sweet, malty with very little bitterness.

Iíve been drinking Summit since Iíve been drinking beer and I always pick up the summer ale in season. First trip up north to Leech Lake so had to pick some up. Super clean and easy drinking. Get some lemon and citrus. Perfect daytime on the boat or on the beach session beer. Comes in cans too. For the style a great beer.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with fluffy white head. Good lacing. Aroma is straw, bread and a little skunkiness. Taste is moderately sweet with minimal bitterness. Taste is straw, grass, medicinal, a slight biscuity flavor. Overall an average blonde.

Practically no aroma. Flavor is a bit citrusy. Not overly bitter. Slightly cloudy. Leave a little pucker aftertaste. Not like the one I sampled in Doylestown, PA. I bought a case because I like the sample.
