4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is my new favorite session beer. Light and crisp with a strop balance of malt and hop. Low SRM, with a slight copper coloring, looks more like a light IPA than your typical pale ale. AleSmith X has a wonderful aroma of fresh pine and citrus with sweet fruit nectar infused malt the background. The flavor is lightly sweet, a bit bready and then well balanced with earthy hop character, citrus and pine. Light on the palate with soft carbonation and a dry finish. This is a really easy drinker, I would love to try it on cask.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a clear light gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma is full of flora and sweet citrus that has a touch of bitterness and light grain backing. Flavor has more of an earthy/bitter citrus note with a bit of grass and some earthy but sweet grain backing.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Niilstrong. Lightly hazy golden color, decent sized white head. Very fruity aroma with hint of melon. Lovely. Taste is lightly malts, hops, fruits, subtly bitter. Soft, yet suitable mouthfeel, both body and carbonation are soft yet suitable.

Ugh, just bought this and realized this was bottled 6 months ago. Really should check the dates before purchasing. Anyway, Nice fruity aroma. Unfortunately, it was too sweet and malty. Most of the hops had fallen off. Still, not bad though.

An excellent APA. Very well balanced. Citrus and pine with a maltiness that keeps the beer very even keel.
