COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

If you can imagine a lighter-smoother version of a robust, fine Pale Ale, but sacrifice none of the flavor, depth of character or drinking experience...you’d be left with X. Pours light golden and clear. Flavor is citrus and sweet-malt. Finishes slightly bitter, sweet and very tingly-clean!
