COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AleSmith dialed in the recipe resulting in an extremely drinkable 6% ABV Pale Ale with light bitterness and accentuated hoppiness designed to fill the gap between AleSmith X Extra Pale Ale and AleSmith IPA. This San Diego Pale Ale will showcase abundant piney and citrusy hop aroma and flavor from an intense dry-hopping schedule. A balanced malt profile will round out these hoppy flavors with a biscuity finish to enhance drinkability throughout the innings.

The name “394” (.394) references the highest single-season batting average Gwynn set back in 1994. Ready to be released at the June 6th Padres Beerfest, San Diego Pale Ale 394 will reflect the commitment to excellence shared by the legendary Tony Gwynn and the AleSmith team.

On tap at their tasting room. Pours a clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma is citrus. Flavor follows. Some malt backbone but more like an east coast ipa. Really nice beer though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2014 Cask tap at the brewery. Clear gold color with a small white head and nice lacing. Aroma is funky, dank hops... in a good way. The hops mellow in the flavor with light bitterness. Fine.
