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.

Tasted rather like a tangy lemon meringue pie. Some sweetness but not much from the malt. Draught with a white head and a clear body

Renobob (616) - 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.

Pale golden, aroma is flat with unmalted cereals and noble hops. Taste is a bit flat with herbal notes and sugar, cereals. Clean aftertaste.

freretoc (625) - 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 !

OldGrowth (2645) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Point at Ruckus pizza Morrisville. Good aroma sweet. Citrus. On the lemon side of things. Not much in the malt side. Clean yellowy gold color. Good head and lace. Sweet bitter flavor. Light body. Creamy oily mouthfeel bitter sweet finish. Nice. File this under "how haven’t I had this yet "aroma its best part. Nice set lemon scent. Flavour little less interesting. Nice finish too.

Kita (1027) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle, 0.65l, shared with colleagues. Pours cloudy pale golden with small off white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of citrus, pineapple and pine. Taste starts with light sweet maltiness, follows by refreshing fruity acidity, but you quickly get dry mouthfeel with moderate bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Very nice session beer...

It pours golden with a white pillowy head. It has a citrus aroma complimented by lemon scents and a bit of pine. The is considerable lacing as the head, which lasts quite a white, disappears. There is a malt flavor with pine and lemon. The lemon becomes stronger with a dry finish.
