Like a couple other Twin Cities BAs this is my trusty session beer. Summit is a well made, interesting and easy drinking ale. It pours a nice copper with a think head which dissapates into a nice lacing. The smell isn't overpowering but pleasant with citrusy hops and bit of malt. The taste isn't overly complex but very well balanced. The hops have a bit of grapefuit flavor to start and linger with a hint of flowery finish that seems to rest on the ample malt base. The beer is extremely drinkable and refreshing and I enjoy the flavor throughout this beer (or two or three). This may not impress hopheads who expect an ale to smack them in the mouth, but anyone who is looking for a well crafted, balanced, quaffable brew should check this one out.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass.
Dark brown color, bit of head. Smells like hops and malt.
Tastes like a pale ale with a bit more caramel than usual. Bitter finish. Lingers a bit.
Different than the pale ales I'm used to. Could use more hops.
Decent enough I guess.
