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.

Pours a slightly hazy gold with a 2 figner, creamy off white head. Aroma some citrus, pine, light floral and herbal hops, husky grain, hay, hints of bread and cereal. Flavors has lots of cereal, somewhat sweet, citrus, pine and herbal hops, toast, hay, fresh cut grass, fruity and bready yeast and bitter citrus and mineral notes to the finish. Very clean, fairly complex and refreshing. Good to great beer.

jc1762 (62) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Poured into Sam Adams Perfect pint showing about a finger and half of clean white foam and pours golden clear. The nose shows clean and fresh tropical and exotic fruits (e.g. pineapple, mango) with hints of cannabis and pine. The palate is medium bodied and very fruit forward - a lot of fresh tropical fruit flavors. The mids show slight malt sweetiness. Slight bitterness at the end rounds off the pale ale. Great beer to start a session and even better fresh during a warmer season. As a pale ale, this is almost perfect.

Joel (114) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Pours orange with a white rocky head. Aromas of citrus and pine. Bitter up-front with a pale malt flavor. Very light body and clean tasting with a lingering bitterness. This is a light pale ale at its best without being over-hopped. Very clean and very good.
