3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear defined hops in the aroma, although they are less defined in the flavor. Low malt, not sweet, good balance. Definitely a pale but a good one. It is unusual that an Alesmith beer is so modest, but it sticks to the usual balanced recipes they come up with.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From Jonathan,thanks, Aroma of pine and citrus, a lot of lemon. Poured a hazy golden. Tasted sweet and lemony, lots of hops but in a good way. Palate was light and clean but tail seemed to leave an imprint. Overall not too bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of lemon and pine. Hoppy taste with a bitter, harsh end. Good beer at the outset. Aftertaste is a bit difficult after a while.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
gracias firemoose15 for sharing, poured a very cloudy light gold, almost the color of a ripe bartlett pear, sweet pine and citrus nose, lots of lemon, lots of candi-sugar. flavors are smooth, pine, malts in the background behind a huge hop profile. the body is lite and crisp, but the residual flavor is kind of harsh and metallic. with a little better balance this would have been better, but the aftertaste turned me off quite a bit.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a clear effervescent golden with a large fizzy white head which left a sparse lacing on the glass. Clean, though mild, hop aroma with a touch of lemon. Taste is very smooth light, crisp hops with a thin malt backbone. Good body. Overall, this beer struck me as well-crafted but surprisingly light in flavor. "When Alesmith brews a beer, they donít fool around," so says Liquid Solutions owner Matt Maples... However, it was clear he wasnít talking about Alesmith X. Couldíve been a lot fuller. Good for what the brewer intended, but seemed unambitious.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy amber with a big off-white head. Citrus hop aroma with some sweet malt underneath. Balanced malt/hop flavor - citrus hops with some chocolate/caramel malt flavors. Lighter bodied and easy drinking.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Pale golden, slightly hazy, large white foamy head, lattice like lacing, little to no carbonation.   Dried hop aroma, very slight pine.   Nice hop bite up front, bitterness lingers throughout til the finish.   Slight malty base, a touch sweet.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Crisp finish, fairly strong, yet smooth, bitterness lingers.   Enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Courtesy of Pailhead. Golden in color with big off-white head, made of tiny bubbles. Nice hop aroma citrus, pine and floral all blended together. Flavor has initial malt sweetness to it but finishes all hops with a slightly skunky kick. Tastes a little musty. Nice APA just not my style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the bomber this pours a cloudy light yellow/orange, this might have been a bit shaken up, but i donít know if itís bottle conditioned or not. Massive citrus hops in the aroma. The sweet malt up front didnít last long against the hops, quickly overtaken and finishes like a big ol hoppy pale should.
