This refreshing, light-golden Extra Pale Ale embodies drinkability. AleSmith X pushes the limits by offering a level of flavor not often found in this classic style. Fresh American hops are abundant but carefully balanced by a light, crisp body and smooth bitterness. Notes of citrus and pine combine with a delicate malt sweetness to create a flavorful drinking experience.

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.

Perfectly balanced crisp fresh blend of citrus, exotic fruit notes from the hops with medium bitterness and rounded smooth malt. Light in the mouth and very refreshing.

Cool_Bond (2039) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2015
Scent of fruitiness and no seasoning I can not specify. Good fruity flavor that is perfect described as well. Not too much and not too little. Perfect bitterness that fills the mouth for a long time. Good beer but missing something special. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
