COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summit Extra Pale Ale is not a beer brewed only for beer snobs. Just the opposite. Its 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.

COMRADEJOSH (320) - Gainesville, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Very bitter ale with a light straw color. Good for cutting through strong spicy foods that this goes well with.

StoutBeerReviews (76) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2016
Much better than summits Octoberfest style wise, good flavor, crisp and clean with a nice light-ish carbonation. Tasty medium bitterness, but not coming from the alcohol which is good.

rumore (175) - Rimini, ITALY - NOV 13, 2016
From the tap at 8th Street Grill, Minneapolis. Pours light copper, worth fine white foam. Aroma is moderately intense with low persistence. Reminds a little of hazelnut, worth some strange feeling of oxidation. Body is light, with some final stickiness and very light astringency. Taste has balanced sweetness and bitterness, with the second dominating on the final.

rosenbergh (11042) - 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.

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.
