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.

scarletfire65 (1546) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2016
Draft at First Draft in Chicago. First beer after the Whole 30 diet. Citrusy hop aroma, like twisting a grapefruit rind. Lots of citrus and soft peppercorn spice palate. Crisp and clean finish. Very nicely balanced.

Nice golden pour, thin white cap. Nose is little grapefruit rind, more pine resin. Middle is orange marmalade, nice medium malt backbone, and some bright piney hop currents. Finish is balanced, soft malt and long medium hop bitterness.

Benzai (17000) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2018
Can @ home. Clear orange golden color, medium sized white to off-white head. Aroma is super fruity, tropical fruit hops, peach, mandarins, mango, pineapple. Flavor is light to moderately malty, superb tropical fruit hoppy flavors as well and a fruity hop bitter. Decent body and carbonation. Absolutely delicious!

Gerbeer (4217) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2017
12 oz can. Pours a hazy amber with moderate head. Aromas of candied oranges, tropical fruit, and bready malts. Flavors follow same with lots of doughy malts and soft pine. Very nice

Can
Cloudy golden color with generous head. Aroma of bready malts, cereals, mild resiny hops and chamomile. Dry but smooth mouthfeel, nice bready malts base, and well balanced hops, a bit of hop resins and chamomile.
Very good.

beerplace (2397) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2017
Small can from the High Point shared at Alex's. Aroma is candied citruses. Similar taste with lots of citruses and hoppy bitterness. Maybe it is a bit old, but it is still good.

3.8
GuideDogSaint (1820) - Xiamen, CHINA - DEC 25, 2017
355ml bottle at the House of Belgium, Xiamen. Pours clear golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of pine with tropical fruit. Floral. Similar taste. Bitter finish. Enjoyable.

3.3
Oakes (19570) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2017
Can, Legacy. Golden-amber colour with a thin head. On the nose, chewy crystal malts up front, with orangey and slightly piney hop notes. It has some fruitiness - again more orangey - and definitely a lot of crystal malt. You get a hint of alcohol as well. Malt-forward pale with moderate bitterness. Old school chewy, with clean yeast. It's ok for what it is, but any more than 12 ounces and I'm tapping out. Just too chewy.

dambor (885) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2017 Pours light orange with medium head. Aroma: nice aroma of oranges, pine and citrus fruit. Taste: nice refreshing, with light body but a clear hop character in the form of oranges and pine.
