COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle from Olbutikken. Very light haze on the pale gold beer. Tidy but short lived white head. Palate is light and a little soft with mild fine carbonation. Semi dry. Mild sweet pale malt supports fairly floral hops. Touch of elderflower but mainly white flowers. Mild tangerine stops it getting cloying. Finishes semi crisp and semi dry. Effortlessly quaffable!
