COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AleSmith dialed in the recipe resulting in an extremely drinkable 6% ABV Pale Ale with light bitterness and accentuated hoppiness designed to fill the gap between AleSmith X Extra Pale Ale and AleSmith IPA. This San Diego Pale Ale will showcase abundant piney and citrusy hop aroma and flavor from an intense dry-hopping schedule. A balanced malt profile will round out these hoppy flavors with a biscuity finish to enhance drinkability throughout the innings.

The name “394” (.394) references the highest single-season batting average Gwynn set back in 1994. Note *** in 1941 Ted Williams batted .406, Williams was the last player to bat .400 in a season. ***. Ready to be released at the June 6th Padres Beerfest, San Diego Pale Ale 394 will reflect the commitment to excellence shared by the legendary Tony Gwynn and the AleSmith team.

hawthorne00 (3904) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 11, 2017
Can.Just hazy amber with a white head that lasts OK and laces well. Aroma of sweet oranges, pine, bread, some herbs and herb. Light creamy texture with soft carbonation. 3+ Quite sweet with citrus, pine and bubblegum-like tropical fruit. Bitterness is modest with some mildly chivish herbal notes. Would have liked it to dry out a bit more at the ed, but perhaps that would have made it a bit harsh. Fine but both the X and the IPA are much more my sort of thing.

jgb9348 (6194) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 10, 2017
Crisp copper coloured body with a lighter orange and peach coloured tint, all with a thinnish, two centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of citrus, light pine, a bit of floral notes and a smooth malt kick throughout, this one is nice and robust. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive floral and grassy hop kick at first with a very smooth and subtle malt backbone showing some smooth yeast flavours as well and a hint of bread. Aftertaste is nice and mellow with only some of the hops coming out, but not a pressing bite nor any real pungency, just a nice balance and good flavour. Overall, a nice APA with a good profile, nice complexity, yet still smooth and easy-to-drink. Great to try, especially fresh and immediately after buying! I sampled this twelve ounce can purchase from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York a few minutes ago on 10-June-2017 for US$2,75 sampled while walking with my daughters in Greenwich Village and on the Subway in New York, New York on 10-June-2017.

010617. Can from Greenslopes Cellars. This has all the qualities of a good American Pale Ale. Pours a clear honey amber with a sudsy white head. Aromas of malt are sweetish with a trace of citrus hops thrown in for good measure. Medium to full bodied in the mouth with a clean fresh finish.
