Coppery amber hue topped off by a khaki skien. Lacing is prevalent. Odors of amber malt, hints of cut sod and dry straw. Taste pricks the tongue with citrus, characteristic rye pepper and a bitterness of the aforementioned hop smothered over a crackers and biscuits backbone. Medium to light body with crisp carbonation. Presents interesting elements that I can enjoy but altogether this beer doesn't stand out from the crowd.

Summit Frost Line Rye. "Break winter's grip with a robust, spicy ale." Sounds good. Ingredients: Water, Barley malt, rye malt, yeast, hops. Brewed and bottled by Summit Brewing Company, St. Paul, MN, 12 fl. oz. ale. No ABV given. I'm going to guess it's between 5 and 6.
Clear, auburn-hued, with a solid, creamy white head.
Aroma: lightly hoppy, malt-forward, rye spicy. Bread-y malt and floral hops co-mingle.
Taste: Rye malt takes center stage now. Spicy, bread-y flavor cover over all else. Tingles the tongue, delights the palate. Stays long in the mouth, begs for another sip and gulp. Just enough of a warmer, without being too deep or dark.
Hey, how about some gobbledygook from the 12-pack packaging? "Hidden in the cold ground in the dark of winter lie little seeds of hope. So, to help hasten the spring thaw, we give you an ale bursting with the spicy goodness of malted rye and floral, citrusy hops. An in-between-season seasonal, if you will. Enjoy!"
I do enjoy. It's a good beer, and I can drink it. Very session-able, very warm, peppery, and tasty. Indeed, it's a fine in-between-er. Not quite this, more than that. It also dances around style designations in an admirable way. I like it.

Pours out a clear bronze shade with some nice white suds. Right out of the bottle, it’s pretty hoppy – floral and herbal, but with a minute or so in the glass becomes very malty. The rye is obvious and it also smells chocolately. Enjoying this.
As I a take a sip, the first thing that stands out is the mouthfeel – good body, somewhat chewy with tranquil carbonation.
Flavor took a little longer to get a handle on. Herbal oregano-like hop bitterness, earthy rye, somewhat roasted. A bit of chocolate/nutty flavor. Lots of lingering bitterness on the finish. On the dry side.
Nice for something different - like it, but don’t love it. But no one should be complaining about not being able to taste the rye in this beer. I see one more 6pack in my future.
