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.

rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2016
Draught at The Lodge at Giants Ridge, Biwabik, MN. Clear deep golden color with a small white head. Sweet fruity hops, caramel malt and some dryness in the aroma. The flavor is dry grassy hops, moderate bitterness, caramel malt and some dryness. Thinnish. Nothing out of the ordinary here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A nice aroma of pine, with some slight citrus notes. Flavor was similar to the aroma with a crisp finish. Overall it was a pretty nice beer, the flavors all worked well together with none being too over or underwhelming. Originally rated on 11/21/08.

ACHops (1584) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 10, 2016
Bottle @ Amy & Nick’s wedding! Aroma is lightly sweet pale malt, earthy dry hops. Taste is likewise - clean and malty, light sweet caramel notes. Little in the hop department, although pleasantly dry on the finish.

ochniczek (326) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2016
draft at cowboy jacks (bloomington), hazy medium orange colour with a small to frothy, moderate lacing, off-white head. Aroma is light heavy malty, grassy and some hops. Flavour is moderately sweet and bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat, very drinkable

Draft- Rochester, MN. Nice golden caramel color. I suppose there was a nice head. It had collapsed by the time it got to me. Not much scent one way or another. Light mouth feel and some corny flavor. Crispness is all it has going for it.

SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Pours slightly hazy orange with a large off-white head. Smells sort of hoppy with a slight metallic note. Taste is mild citrus and hints of pine. Light-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Summit Extra Pale Ale finishes with a subtle hint of hops.

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

BlackHaddock (7329) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2016
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.

3.8
JorgeLee (2116) - 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.
