Light copper color with a fizzy diminsihed... "damn" the heads gone already, so I don’t know what color it was, but is wasn’t white, so something darker and not quite white head. Wait, if it is gone before I got a good look at it was it ever really ever there? To be honest, one of the more worthless heads I have ever encountered. It still gets a two because the liquid still looks good, but I’m thinking the body is going to suffer. Caramel and corn soup aromas. Not bad, but not clean and very amber like. Actually the palate is quite light and with a nearly not as much fizz as I would have expected. Flavors of lightly toasted grain, touch of dark corn syrup and floral hops. I don’t find much that is Irish in this one. Generic sweetness in the finish and linger. ebrowner88 (123) - Rice, Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Not as "amber" as killians. Nose is of Bud Lite and pears. Not an offensive taste, but not much taste at all. Very lite malt and then just a hint of hops. (probably just from sitting on the summit loading dock) I could drink a shitload of these. Very lite bodied. Not very impressive, but the sixer won’t go to waste.

On Tap. Light amber in color with a small head. Low aroma of of malt and hops. Taste is the same, more malt than hops and thin. A pretty bland brew that finishes weak. markas101 (2499) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - NOV 13, 2007
33 cl bottle, Fargo. Pale amber colour, Standard macro aroma, sweet and watery tasting,not very interesting. keoki182 (305) - West Bend, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 31, 2007
In bottle from Southswitch near Tower, MN. Very bland malt aroma. Very bland malt flavor. Tasted like a macro disguised as a micro. Went okay with wings, if only for the inherent water content in the beer. I did not taste the potatoes referenced on the label.

Draft @ Kieran’s Irish Pub, Minneapolis: Copper, nice head and lacing. Clean, easy drinking beer, typical I guess. Balance with a touch of caramel. The finish is toasty, meh. tennisjoel (1487) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2007

I wanted to sample this, mainly to rate the last available Summit beer and avoid having to purchase a whole bottle, or even worse, a sixer. Bland non offensive flavor. Faint hops. Potato - maybe - are you really going to taste it? Like rice or corn, it’s pretty flavorless.
A bad marketing gimmick but I’m sure it works for some folk, not for most ratebeerians, I’d guess though.
Bottle. Pours an attractive golden/copper with a thin white head. Very grainy and bready on the nose with a hint of alcohol which is surprising given its low ABV. Medium to light bodied. Grassy and grainy with a hint of roasted malt and caramel. kyzr (1596) - Montana, USA - AUG 12, 2007
Amber bottle pour with very small head. Grainy nose, not a lot of hop to the nose. Flavor was thin with a touch of toasted malt and very light hops. Very clean finsih. chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2007
On tap at Kieran’s Irish Pub, Minneapolis, June 2007. It is indeed amber in colour with a thin white head. Touch of light cereal malt on the nose. Not much hop coming through. Much the same on the palate with the malt coming through a bit more strongly. Mouthfeel is clean and smooth with a sweetish undercurrent. A bit gassy for my taste. Might have picked up more had I left it to warm up a bit, but I was thirsty so it didn’t last long. I would guess that the potato thing is more of a gimmick than a significant element of the fermentables. Pretty uneventful stuff but there’s nothing offensive about it.
