COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AleSmith X Extra Pale Ale is a clean, light-colored, light-bodied ale. The People’s Choice award winner at the 2000 San Diego Real Ale Festival and the second runner-up in 2001, it has a good dose of dry hops balanced by a gentle sweetness, giving an almost sweet-and-sour effect. Appearance: Light golden color, and a nice white head, with good retention when properly served. Flavor: Starts off with almost tingling flavors of citrus and pine, balanced by a nice malty sweetness, then fades to a dry finish with a lingering hoppiness. Aroma: Strong lemony-citrusy character, with sweet malt and pine in the background. Mouthfeel (body/texture): Smooth, light-bodied.

Flaske: Gammeldags type APA med en masse bitterhumle. Har holdt sig flot selvom den ikke er helt frisk. Orange klar øl. Duft af citrus. Smag af lidt stale hops men bitterheden gør den bestemt drikbar.

edwardbass (489) - Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2014
Bomber from Discount Liquors in Milwaukee. Hazy yellow color. Aroma is dominated by malt. Taste is pine resin hops and a little bit of citrus, mixed simultaneously with bready and sweet malt. It has a very dry and a light palate and a bitter, pine resin aftertaste that clings to the tongue and sticks around for a long time. A very good pale ale.
