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.

Courtesy SoLan. Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a thick, foamy white head. Very well retained. Smells of mild floral hops which made it a pleasant smell. Maybe a touch of some spice in there too. The taste has some bitterness to it with hops backing it up. Easy drinking on the palate. The whole beer has a subtleness to it that makes it enjoyable to drink. Th flavor is still there, but not strong. Quality as usual from these guys.

Commercial description is very close. I’m not getting the sweet and sour effect and the carbonation is balanced as opposed to smooth. Rather than balance, the malt adds just enough sweetness, the hops are the show. Great pale. Great summer brew.

Thin white head. Pours a clear amber. Smells of hops, malt, and pineapple.Flavor has a eucalyptus element as does the aftertaste. Watery body but overall a pleasant beer.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - JUN 14, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of pine, tropical fruit, malt, but a little grassy. Flavor is similar, not a great amount of malt and the hops are not as flavorful as anticipated. Pleasant bitter finish.

MrRain (472) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 8, 2007
22oz bottle poured in a lager glass. This is a very nicely done beer. It has an initial aggressive hop taste that quickly mellows out and flows across your tongue like a pale lager thus saving it from being an IPA. This beer is refined and exceptionally balanced.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2007
Bottle thanks to Saarlander: Pours a pale gold with a bit soft white head. Aroma, light citrus notes, bready malts, and some floral notes as well. Flavor, bready pale malts up front, with some lemon and spices. There is a floral, herbal, piny bitterness to it. Very smooth and refreshing. Good stuff.

adrian910ss (2561) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2007
22 oz bomber. Pours a hazy light yellow gold color with a thick white head. Aroma of faint floral and piney west coast hops. Taste is floral with hints of piney hops and mild citrus, leaning on grapefruit. Very good warm day beer and quite enjoyable.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 22, 2007
On draft. Minimal head - not a great appearance. Nice mouthfeel and the taste was suprisingly bitter - great balance of hops and malt. Nice dry finish and soft carbonation. A nice beer - one you could drink a lot of if in the right mood. Refreshing.

650 mL bottle. Yellow amber with fine bubbles and a foamy white head. Hoppy aroma, crisp, bitter taste. Decent.

holdenn (2110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2007
22 oz bottle thanks to pantanap for this extra. Pours a yellow orange color with a tall head. Nose is very PNW IPA. Grapefruit/citrus/pine notes with carmel all over. Carmelly light flavors hints of grapefruit and lemon. A little watery, and somewhat subpar for an american pale ale. But I bet this is great on tap.
