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.

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 8, 2008
(bottle): Pours a golden somewhat cloudy yellowish color. Big foamy frothy white head with good lacing. Very bitter, dry piney aroma. Malty sweet on the end of the aroma. Sweet malty taste. A little hoppy on the end. A little dry. More sweet than hoppy. Warming up it’s a little more hoppy.

rmussman (1701) - California, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Sampled out of a 22oz. Pours nice and smooth with a head that sticks around. Has a nice malty base with really smooth textures. Worth a try for a non-big hoppy brew.

Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Aroma is very intense grapefruit hops. Flavor is some malt with a big grapefruit, pine hop finish.

jake65 (4000) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - DEC 29, 2007
Bottle: Pours a lighter golden with a large white head. Nice thick lacing. Nose is soft with hops and citrus, light maltiness. Flavor is that of a moderately hopped pale, a little citrus, and some maltiness. Not overwhelming in flavors, but well balanced and quite drinkable.

doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 23, 2007
22oz bomber. Pours a slightly cloudy amber color. Great yellowish white head that settles to be quite frothy and leaves much residue on the glass. Slight smell of hops with quite a bit of citrus. Has an almost spicy citrus taste. Just a little spice in the front with a lingering mellow hop taste. A little tingle and acidity up front on the palate. Lightly coats the mouth and tongue. This is my favorite pale ale. Very drinkable, tasty!

22oz bottle from BevMo Carmel Mountain. Brew pours a lightly hazed golden color. Mountainous rocky white head with tons of thick lacing left on the glass. nose was big on the floral hops as well as pine, grapefruit and other citrus. creamy mouth feel, drinks very well.

SuzyGreenberg (1604) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2007
22 oz. bottle - pours clear gold with good amount of carbonation; big white head that settles nicely around the edges and leads to lacing; fresh hop aromas are full and sweet; drinks clean and crisp with lovely creamy texture coming through at the bottom of the glass

pintsize (1041) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 16, 2007
11-6-07 Bottle. Watery gold color with really nice head that lasted forever. Muted citris earthy aroma - hints of oak too. Very very very carbonated. The carbonation overpowers the taste. Flavor just isnt there like I want or expect it to be. Somewhat weak and watery for me. Metallic finish to boot - just not my favorite.

4.3
Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 13, 2007
Bottle courtesy of dirty_martini. Pours gold with a nice white head. Smells of flowers, grass, lots of citrus, some tea, hints of biscuits. Taste yields a nicely balanced bitterness with some dry malt and touches of sweetness on the finish. One of the best APAs I’ve had to date.

3.5
StefanSD (2468) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2007
650 ml bottle from Bevmo. Pours a slightly cludy orange-gold color with a big foamy clumpy white head with plenty of lacing. The aroma is strong with pine, cedar and citrus. The Flavor is semi-sweet with caramel, butterscotch, light citrus and biter hops. The mouthfeel is sliky smooth, but it is just a wee bit thinner than I expected. The Finish is long and clean. Overall: This is a fine pale ale. Recommended.
