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 what’s great is they don’t 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 ’em...

Bottle. Pours a clear light gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma is full of flora and sweet citrus that has a touch of bitterness and light grain backing. Flavor has more of an earthy/bitter citrus note with a bit of grass and some earthy but sweet grain backing.

Benzai (9778) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Niilstrong. Lightly hazy golden color, decent sized white head. Very fruity aroma with hint of melon. Lovely. Taste is lightly malts, hops, fruits, subtly bitter. Soft, yet suitable mouthfeel, both body and carbonation are soft yet suitable.

Ugh, just bought this and realized this was bottled 6 months ago. Really should check the dates before purchasing. Anyway, Nice fruity aroma. Unfortunately, it was too sweet and malty. Most of the hops had fallen off. Still, not bad though.

An excellent APA. Very well balanced. Citrus and pine with a maltiness that keeps the beer very even keel.

Flaska delad med @msbrindbergs, tack! Ljust guldfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Humlig söt doft. Lite klen å med en sur touch men smarrig!

Flaska från Mikkeller Webshop. Klar gul vätska med vitt skum. Doftar citrus och disktrasehumle. Frisk pigg sötma med karakteristisk apa-beska. God, men inget sticker ut. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
