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.

One beautiful looking beer. Aroma and flavor have a strong lemon-herb tea character. Nice effort from Alesmith again.

From a 22 oz. bomber bottle with blurb on the back of bottle, no freshness date, sampled at a cool temperature in a pint glass. Poured with a slight chill haze, an orangey golden with fluffy, foamy white head that settled into a thin sudsy lacing, small amount of laced sticking. Aromas of orange rind, earthy hops, sweet grain bready malts and fruity yeast. Good even carbonation and a crisp, dry, hop slick, velvety smooth light-medium bodied mouthfeel. Great APA taste, citric, a soft pine, dry earthy leafy hops that have a mild, but lingering bitterness in the palate, a subtle fruitiness from the yeast, pale grainy maltiness, and a citric rind, dry hop, malty finish. One of best APA Iíve tried, quite quaffable, I need to get more of this.

22 oz. Bottle, Sweet citrus aroma. Gold body with white head and mild lacing. Flavor was bitter to start with. Malt added some sweet citrus sour flavor to subdue bitterness. Sweet syrups citrus on palate. Decent beer.

Bottle. Pours a nice, clear, golden color with an average head. Fresh, pine-like aroma. The flavor is very light to begin with but comes on much stronger in the after taste. Probably my favorite pale ale that iíve tried so far.

Light color with big head. Aroma is very sweet citrus with a bit of pine. Taste is crisp & hoppy - mostly citrus with other sweet flavors mixed in. This is a good example of what an APA should be - not overly hopped, but medium bodied and refreshing. One of the best Iíve had in the style. Alesmith does it again!

I needed something lighter but still tasty, so I pcked up a 22 of X, and I wasnít dissapointed. Light yellow brew with a thick white head like a belgian blonde (maybe the bottle fermentation?). Sweet citrusy aroma with hints of belgian yeast. Flavor was sweet and hoppy with a clean finish. awell craft, very drinkable, light bodied beer. why arenít there more of these out there?

golden hazy hue (hefeweizen like) with moderately lasting head. Citrussy and yeasty aroma. very smooth hefeweizen like flavor. A very enjoyable beer, but wasnít overwhelmed with pleasure.

Nice straw like color and great head retention on this one. Sweet and citrusy with a great amount of hoppiness that wasnít all that overpower. Pretty light, a nicely balanced pale ale.
