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.

DrnkMcDermott (3025) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2003
Draft, Minneapolis. Nice to see a larger craft brewer whose flagship brand is not the usual pale pilsner. And nice to see that it's readily available on tap in the Twin Cities (it's even on a few taps here in Chicago). A pleasing amber/copper color, toasty malty sweetness and a refined hop spiciness... definitely not IPA level, but enough to tell the novice beer drinker there's another world out there. Great with those Matt's hamburgers with the cheese fried inside the patty (a Minneapolis tradition my brother introduced me to)!

rumore (108) - 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 (10895) - 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

BeerRenter76 (845) - Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2016
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.

Bottle @ Amy & Nicks 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.

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.

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. Its sweeter and pine-ier than most APAs, and it has a bit of a clash of flavors between menthol bitterness and malt sweetness.
