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.

First asted at the Mikkeler Bar - this EPA(??) really surprised us. Looks stunning! Very light in color but not lacking in either malt backbone or hops. A fantastic and refreshing pale ale that keeps the palate begging for more. Could drink this all night.

From backlog. Bomber. Pours a mostly clear pale yellow-orange color with a big fizzy head that fades quickly. Big lemony aroma, somewhat musty. Hints of pine and malt. Taste is lemon zest and very light pine. Fizzy carbonation and lemony taste make it seem like a Belgian blonde. Overall, it’s decent and unique but I probably won’t buy again.

Zekada (143) - 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 (641) - 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 (716) - 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 !
