22 oz bottle. Pours gold with a thick head with tons of lacing and lively carbonation. Citrus nose. Flavor is pine, citrus, and a mild sweetness. Light mouthfeel and very refreshing. I can’t recall ever having a below par beer from Ale Smith. Good beer. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 24, 2009
Bottled (thanks stoutlover72!). Amber colour, huge white head. Aroma is fruits, some grassyness and mild toffeeishness. Flavour is some slight fruity notes with toffee and some slight earthyness also. Fruity and yeasty aftertaste. TBone (17532) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 24, 2009
Bottled (a couple of years old bottle, Vasa session).
Slightly hazy yellow color, giant head, lots of lace. Citrusy with light mellow mango aroma, some papery-grainy notes. Citrusy, fruity, bready ... some hops in the aftertaste. Long citrusy bitter aftertaste. Toned down after ageing. harbuck76 (134) - El Cajon, California, USA - APR 17, 2009

I knew I had this beer the last time I was in San Diego but I just couldn’t be sure. Got the bottle in a trade with WeeHeavySD. Pours a clear blond with a thin white head. Citrus hops are the main aroma. Good bitter finish. I still like my Alpha King better for a APA, but this is a fine beer.

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! That1Guy (2236) - Colorado, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Huge thanks to BMan1113VR for hooking me up with this one. Crushed with Jakebra. Beautiful nose of orange citrus and hops. Flavor is pretty nice, very smooth, but a little thin. I still have nothing to complain about. Definitely dug it. kosko20 (352) - Bemidji, Minnesota, USA - MAR 10, 2009
Bottle on 1/1/09. Another winner from Alesmith. Gold pour with an off white head which leaves good lacing. Lemon hops dominate the aroma. Flavor is a little weak but balanced of lemon, grapefruit and floral hops. Slightly bitter and a light mouthfeel. chadje (209) - California, USA - MAR 8, 2009
A citrussy aroma to it. An light amber color with a good head. A relly nice pale ale, one of the better that I have had. Very grapefruit taste to it at first. jeremytoni (3058) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - FEB 26, 2009
From the tap poured amber with a fair amount of head. Nice hoppy flavor with a quick finish.
