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.

The last time I had this was from a growler. It had a light golden color. Floral hop aroma. Very light bodied. Slight fruit (lemon) flavor was a characteristic as well.

Bomber. Poured clear, brighter golden with a well-retained creamy cap of creamy white head. The aroma was softer with dry light fruity notes, grapefruit, and pine.. nice. The flavor had a sweet grapefruit and other light fruity core with with dusty lemon zest and pine bitterness around the edges.. zesty lemon and dried floral bitterness on the finish. Creamy middle, with a very dry, great feel on the finish.. nice balance throughout. This would be a solid every-day drinker if available.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2009 Very much IPA-lite. The opening sweetness is very quick but undeniable. The finish is long and clean. Very floral, very citrus peel. A great relaxing beer.

22oz bottle. Pours a tarnished, golden-honey color; fluffy white head with good retention and lacing. Pleasant, oily and resiny citrus hops in the aroma; some fruit and smooth hop oils. Lively zolt of citrus at the tip of the tongue; dry bitterness creeps in along the edges; medium-to-full mouthfeel, with a very clean, clear hop character (citrus, herbal); minimal astringency present; very drinkable, generously hopped pale ale. Lengthy, citrus hop and candy sugar in the finish.

Bomber. Hazy straw color with a huge head. Excellent retention, lots of foamy shapes. Aroma of sugary malt and citrus hops. Lighter hop flavor, with citrus and spices. Dry and hop spicy finish. Very nice.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2007 Wow, to call this one of the best pales is a complete joke. Simultaneously one of the blandest and most overcarbonated beers I’ve ever had. Pours a cloudy orange with a huge bubbly white head. Smell is nice and of earthy and citrus smells along with some tropical fruit notes. Taste however is literally almost nonexistant. Extremely bland and the mouthfeel needs serious work. Tongue stripping carbonation, along with the fact that the beer turns to foam as it hits your tongue and froths immensely. In a blind tasting this would be thrashed. Like the bubbliest champagne you could imagine. Drinkable, but a far cry from what I expected from the Alesmith name, and there are better and cheaper pales in the local grocery store...

22 oz bottle via Hellbilly (thanks!). Pours a semi hazy amber with an average sized chunky white head. Nose is some subtle floral hops and a bit of yeast. Taste is all about the floral hops with a bit of peppery spiciness..just a tad..and some subtle pine in the finish.. Body is light and carbonation is high. A nice Pale Ale.

750. Thanks, after4ever! Pours hazy gold with a massive, fluffy white head. Sweet aroma of pine and pineapple. Light body, moderate carbonation. Crisp piney finish. This is the deluxe session beer. Why can’t we get it here?

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2007 Bottled, consumed on 10/20/07. Pours a hazy yellow (think Hoegarden, but darker). Well, it does after the RIDICULOUSLY frothy gigantic white head dissipates enough for beer to be seen. Aroma is mild piny hops with a grassy note. Malty and mild on the mouth, with a tart citrus flavor appearing shortly. Tingly without being too parching, the smooth beer leaves almost no aftertaste save for a hint of astringency on the tongue and a memory of alcohol in the throat. A really nice summer beer.
