3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale gold with a 2 finger, fluffy white head that has great retention and leaves pretty nice lacing. Aroma of toast, cereal, doughy yeast, and spicy, floral and light citrus hops. Flavor is bready, some tree fruit, citrus and planty hops, cereal. Light to medium body very creamy texture and, medium, blanketing and somewhat sharp carbonation. All around decent, nothing spectacular but flavorful enough and still decently refreshing, but the soft, creamy texture doesn’t really help that part. I like the mouthfeel, but it really doesn’t fit the other attributes of the beer all that well.

Can. Clear golden pour. Minimal head and no lacing. IDK whats going on here. Completely forgettable beer. Grainy and a bit sweet, with very light citrus notes. I would never have beleived it was a Summit ale.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap in a pint glass at Maxwell’s. Light golden color and a little bit of head. Taste is the opposite of complex. Minor hop flavor but mostly a forgettable taste. I suppose it fits the summer easy to drink requirement but not a lot going on here. I think Summit achieved what they were striving for but they weren’t exactly reaching for the stars. Meh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. can thanks to Skyview for this. Slightly hazy gold color with a fluffy soapy white head. Active carbonation. Aroma is light grain, citrus and wheat. A mild earthy note when warm.
Flavor is much of the same. Grain, crackers and a touch of earthy, grassy hops. Real light in body with a clean, short finish. It does have a light effervescent mouthfeel from the carbonation. Very easy to drink and since it is now offered in cans, it’s a brew you can take to a local BBQ or summer party.

Not what I was expecting. Nice yellow body, good carbonation. Aroma is hoppy with hints of dough. Taste is hops with hints of pine, much like a milder IPA, than what I'd thought.
