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.

From the bottle - pours out yellow in color (surprisingly). Refreshing, easy to drink, infact I found myself gulping it down. Hop flavors, light on the carbonation. Very nice.

ElGaucho (2285) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Nice hop aroma with hints of dark fruit. Not overly perfumy or floral. Clear body; no visible carbonation. White head. Excellent lace. What hop is this? Not overly piney or resiny or hoppy. Smooth dark fruit. Too softly carbonated.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 25, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2006 Bottle courtesy of zug4abby. Thanks again! Pours gold with nice white head and spotty lacing. Sweet citrusy hop aroma, with notes of lemon and pine. Crisp and sweet malt flavor offset by piney hop bitterness. Refreshing, dry bitter finish, in which I pick up some lemon and pilsnereque flavors. Another well done beer from Alesmith. This would be a great summer APA.

22 oz. bottle - Golden color with a light head that faded somewhat quick. Nice citrus hop aroma. Great hop flavor with just a little sweetness to go with it. Medium-light body with no unpleasent aftertaste. Very easy to drink.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 10, 2006
Cloudy golden with a thick white head. Good retention. Aroma was quite floral for a Pale Ale, reminded me more of lager then a Pale Ale. Flavor was hoppy with citrus, graitfruit, lemon and caramel. Overall it really impresses me as a Lager, but it is still really good.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2006
65 cl bottle. Golden colour with a great head. Very light aroma of sweetness from the malt and some caramel too. Very nice hoppy flavour with a lot of fruitness and some maltness. Ends up bitter and dry, really nice endeed.

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 28, 2006
Bottle Pours a golden hued yellow, with nice fine carbonation and a dispersed frothy off-white head. Aroma of chipotle, light fresh grain bin, and very subtle and gentle grassy hops. Wheaty sweet flavor, without a lot of body and depth, but an extreme level of drinkability. Thereís a strong ring of playdough and some peculiar spicy light florals that I canít put my finger on, but donít seem to be coming from the hops. I could be wrong. Itís almost a sweet fruity grain character showing through. Smacks of light grass and some green teas, with a tooth of bran. Palate is a grainy dry glow. Thanks Andy!

(Bottle 65 cl) Pours pale amber with a slight haze and a rough, white head with a splendid retention. Lovely, lightly citrusy nose. Medium body with a vague caramelish sweetness. Dry, hoppy and very aromatic finish. 240206

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2006
Bottle at Enniskillenís tasting

Pours a nice gold with a healthy head. Aroma is lemon grass and a faint rice. Flavor is honey, rice, and weak hops. Watery Palate. Despite the sum of its parts, itís an enjoyable beer. Nice balance of ingredients and alcohol.
