COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

stevoj (3777) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 7, 2016
Bottle from Union Liquors. Hazy golden body piled high with a fluffy head. light hop aroma recalls a pilsner. Taste is extra crisp, nice snap on the finish. Lingering bitterness. Could easily pass for a nice German pils.

Cristobal37 (739) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 24, 2016
On tap at Alesmith brewpub. Light golden. Aroma of citrus and piney hops. Classic San Diego pale ale, lots of bitter and lemony hops mellowing out slowly with a bit of fruitiness. Not so different from the .394 pale ale but really good and easy to drink.

tomekboniek (468) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 15, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2016 Beczka. Barwa złota z białym kożuchem piany. Aromat cytrusowy lecz nie powalający. Smak również cytrusowy. Wydaje mi się, że już lekko zelżały. Nic nadzwyczajnego, polskie piwa w stylu myślę, że prezentują taki sam jak nie wyższy poziom. Chciałbym wypić to piwo świeże, pełnowartościowe zaraz po uwarzeniu.

PotjeBier (2628) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2016
On tap @ Beer Temple, sample size. Hazy golden color. Dense white head leaving lacerings. Aroma’s: fruity, citrus, with retronasal some grain, a bit (old) malty sweet). Flavor is mild bitter, light citrus sour, some grainy sweetness. Light bodied. Finishes with some caramel, somewhat dry, rather bitter. Perhaps this wasn’t too fresh, but decent enough.

anstei (1016) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 21, 2016
Bottle from Erzbierschof Zurich. A very smooth and drinkable pale ale indeed. Spring-like aroma hops give this beer a fresh feeling, carbonation and malts are matching. Pines, some citrus. Medium-bodied, but never boring. Keeps its thing throughout. This beer does literally nothing wrong, yet it fails to excite me. It is very, very solid though.

trapped (2120) - New York, TURKEY - APR 8, 2016
Draught @ Sunswick 35/35. Slightly cloudy pale yellow, with small whitish foamy head, faint citrus aroma, medium carbonation, vanilla and sweetish citrus taste, thin body, medium bitter finish. Very smooth and drinkable.

drjoeng (738) - SINGAPORE - APR 2, 2016
5.25%ABV.   Poured out gold.  6şSRM. Nose has ton of pale malt sweet. Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate is pale malt body, finishes off sweet.  Hops are pine, grapefruit peel and lemon peel. Finish is clean.  The hop finish is unique where it comes on in the middle, blooms to full bitter, then regresses into a fresh lemon experience (oily, bitter, spicy and tingly).
