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.

Cask tap at the brewery. Clear good 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.

ACHops (695) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2014
On tap @ The Dray. Pours pale golden yellow with thin lacy white head. Aroma is light crystal malt and dry floral hops. Taste is clean lightly oaky pale malt with dry notes of light citrus, berries, and floral spice on the hops. A little surprised by the restraint on the hops here from Alesmith, very mild with clean finish. Very drinkable, hope this makes it into their regular rotation. Plus I’m a sucker for a Tony Gywnn themed beer, so that helps.
