AleSmith X Extra Pale Ale is a clean, light-colored, light-bodied ale. The People’s Choice award winner at the 2000 San Diego Real Ale Festival and the second runner-up in 2001, it has a good dose of dry hops balanced by a gentle sweetness, giving an almost sweet-and-sour effect. Appearance: Light golden color, and a nice white head, with good retention when properly served. Flavor: Starts off with almost tingling flavors of citrus and pine, balanced by a nice malty sweetness, then fades to a dry finish with a lingering hoppiness. Aroma: Strong lemony-citrusy character, with sweet malt and pine in the background. Mouthfeel (body/texture): Smooth, light-bodied.

kevinator (909) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Very tasty. Surprisingly the malts were first detected in the aroma. The color was a clear golden with an enormous head. Highly carbonated nature that made this crisp and somewhat dry. There was a great balance of flavors with a smooth hops bitterness that did not overwhelm. Floral more than piney. Malts formed a good foundation that added a cereal element to the experience. This would be a good go-to beer on any occassion.

Zekada (136) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle from Bishops Arms, Helsingborg. Aroma is very hoppy with sides of grass and hay, and it smells very nice. Pours a hazy pale orange colour with a medium white head. Taste has some subtle hops, with a fresh taste of citrus and some grass. Overall one of the better APA I’ve ever had, definitely worth a tryl

Renobob (635) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 9, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 66cl. Un vrai plaisir au nez, complexe et envoûtant, qu’on ne retrouve que trop peu au palais. Produit très très bon tout de même.

freretoc (685) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 5, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 66.6cl, couleur blonde trouble, belle mousse et effervescence, une bière avec un des meilleures nez que j’ai jamais eu, complexe dans les houblons, il te mène loin rien qu’à sentir c’est un délice... Une fois en bouche on est presque déçu que ce nez incroyable ne soit pas aussi prégnant, mais il faut attendre pour retrouver les arômes de fleurs, de fruit de la passion de mangue, de noix de coco et enfin une pointe vanille... Excellentissime !

Pours hazy yellow with white head. Has a strong citrus, fruit and wheat aroma. A light taste with citrus, pine, and light fruit and hops. A refreshing beer.
