UPDATED: MAY 12, 2017 I’ve been drinking Summit since I’ve been drinking beer and I always pick up the summer ale in season. First trip up north to Leech Lake so had to pick some up. Super clean and easy drinking. Get some lemon and citrus. Perfect daytime on the boat or on the beach session beer. Comes in cans too. For the style a great beer. junkeee (22) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Real light yellow color. Crip, slightly fruity aroma. Taste: an initial brief burst of lemon zest, offset nicely by just the right amount of bitterness which lingers after the floral fruitiness departs.
This is a home run of a summer seasonal outing. I can see several of these being consumed on the patio or at a lakeside bar. Skyview (6099) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours a clear golden pale colored brew with a decent sized off-white head that some some night retention and excellent lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, some light spicy and grassy hops, and a hint of pear. Taste is light to medium bodied, fruity golden grain malt with a short lived spicy hop flavor. Finish has a quick sharp bitterness, a hint of white pepper, then a toasted golden grain malt aftertaste that slowly disappears. Much better than your standard lawnmower beer. This summer ale has a nice flavor profile arnold931 (1264) - Iowa, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear light yellow with bright white head. Nose is light citrus. Taste is also citrus with some sweetness. Refreshing. MNAle (226) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Light color. Very crisp aroma. Subtle hop presence, consistent with the style. Refreshing, easy drinking. The 4.5% ABV and crisp, refreshing taste means you could pound back more than a few of these on a hot summer evening.

Transfer from BA review from
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a pale golden color with a big billowy white head. The head has a pretty decent retention lasting for a few minutes eventually fading to leave a moderate amount of lacing
Smell – The aroma is of a bready wheat malt and some lemon citrus and a light herbal aroma.
Taste – The taste begins crisp with a nice blend of wheat malt as well as some light citrus fruit notes. Some floral flavors come to the tongue, and with an increase in the lemon citrus, end up lightly bittering the taste. Toward the end a very light grassy flavor mixes with the others and leaves a clean taste on the tongue at the end.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is very light with a higher level of carbonation. A refreshing effervescent brew that is very easy to drink.
Overall – A good summer session beer. It is very easy to drink with its smooth body, light abv and more simple but flavorful crisp taste.

355ml bottle. golden slightly hazed pour. Smell is light fruits and citrus. Flavor is bready malt, citrus, bitter herbs. A really nice brew that is still good on this 70 degree day in late october.
