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.

This is delicious. The light color and frothy white head seem to go with the lighter body feel. The hops are spicy and citrusy with great pine and citrus aromas, and whatís great is they donít dry out the palate. Flowers, grass, ripe fresh apple, juniper berry. The beer has enough malt support without the malt really getting in the way flavor-wise or becoming sticky. This makes X a total pleasure to drink - easy, but entertainingly complete. Maybe I just got an exceptional bottle, so I will have to research that theory with lots more of íem...

Color is extra pale. Pouring a light cloudy yellow with a white sticky head. Tastes soapy and slightly piney leaving a bitter finish. Very well balanced and super crushable. Had a bomber pour at home. Excellent pale ale

Pale yellow, a bit hazy body with a thick white head. Hoppy aroma, with grass and pine notes. Very smooth taste, itís a little bit sweet with the bitterness lingering in the background. Smooth mouthfeel, not a lot of carbonation. Very nice overall.

65cl bottle, served in tulip. Pours golden with small/medium white head. Some lacing. Aromas of toffee, tropical fruits and pine. In contrast, the flavour has a lot of pine with citrusy notes. Almost no sweetness...maybe some caramel but thatís all. The aftertaste is moderately bitter and dry, very balanced. Light body, very good carbonation. Definitely the kind of APA I like (and sure a lot of people do). It is not perfect because of small details, well done.

Nothing wrong. It is a good a good pale ale; I dare say refreshing in a sense. Is it something to get excited about ? Not really. Too expensive to be a daily drinker. Nice 22oz bottle.

Garrold (2861) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2015
Bottle. Turnerís, Sheffield. Hazy gold. Bubbles and a film of lasting, white head. Fairly sweet, slightly fusty malts. Soft toffee. Mandarin orange hop. Some cracker biscuit. Faint pine notes. Taste is light bitter. Hint of mineral dryness. Light, citric tang. Clean, lively palate. Juicy bitterness builds, and lingers on the finish. Quaffable.

jdjuice (473) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - AUG 30, 2015
Iím going to compare this to Alesmithís IPA. The aromas are a little more subdued, but still solidly hoppy and light. The body is a lot lighter than the IPA, but with that unique Alesmith creamy mouthfeel that feels really unique and contrasts nicely with the light flavors. Really pleasant and one of the best pale ales Iíve had.

Draft at the source. Poured a golden color with a small white head. Aroma was light pine, some mild citrus. Flavor was mild citrus, light pine. A touch earthy hop character. Easy to drink.

Perfectly balanced crisp fresh blend of citrus, exotic fruit notes from the hops with medium bitterness and rounded smooth malt. Light in the mouth and very refreshing.

Geiserich (3770) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle at Austrian RB Meeting in Linz shared by Saeglopur, many thanks. Golden color, white head. Aroma with intensive notes of wort, rosmary, citrus, citrus peel. Flavor with light sweetness, citrus and herbal hops. Quite ok, pretty standard IPA:
