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.

ABS (385) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 17, 2014
Bottle from City Beer, San Francisco. Straw color. Some white head. Thin body. Medium to slightly low carbonation. Some bitterness. Grass, some hop, some malt aroma. A bit gritty. Lacks a bit in every department in my opinion.

edwardbass (422) - Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2014
Bomber from Discount Liquors in Milwaukee. Hazy yellow color. Aroma is dominated by malt. Taste is pine resin hops and a little bit of citrus, mixed simultaneously with bready and sweet malt. It has a very dry and a light palate and a bitter, pine resin aftertaste that clings to the tongue and sticks around for a long time. A very good pale ale.

Hazy yellow with a white foamy head. High carbonation and good lacing. Aroma of floral hops, toffee, resin, pale malts and light yeast. Likewise with the flavor. Moderate body with light carbonation. Quite tasty and easy to drink!

Cirrhosis (1175) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 15, 2014
Golden lager body with a 2" rocky crown. Aroma is faint, peach schnaps, hoppy, dusty malts.............. trails off to nothing. Lemon!!!! Peachy, lemon and very dry. This is a pale ale of awesome. Ends in a good lingering bitter. When warm a light bread comes out. So crisp so clean..... hard to pick out any flavours.

Backlog. Tried the bottle version a couple of times. Like all of Alesmiths beers this is a high-quality brew, not their best though.

Bottle pour. Pours a beautiful pearly copper, clear and sparkling. Subtle notes of citrus and fresh cut grass on the nose. Subtle but nice pale hoppy flavor with a good bite. Nothing incredible but very nice.

Habanero (2151) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2014
Bottled. Pours a clear golden with a huge, fluffy, off-white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus, piney notes and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and pleasant bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and average carb. A lovely pale indeed.
