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.

Rated on 6-26-2017. This bottled beer’s appearance is a medium sized white semi-frothy head that is mostly lasting, transparent gold body, fast rising carbonation observed, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, pine, tropical fruit, earthy, floral, caramel, and malt. The flavor is lightly bitter, citrus hops, pine hops, earthy, lightly sweet, tropical fruit, spicy, and a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and smooth. This beer is light-medium bodied. This is a very easy and refreshing beer with a light bitter finish. The flavors come together very nicely and this is a beer that I would like to purchase again.

A lovely copper color with a huge white head. The aroma is spritzy sweet citrus while The taste is malt forward then fuzzy pine and old dried citrus peel. Alright but most likely better fresh.

bomber. Piny nose, with a bit of caramel. Glowing deep gold. Lots of pine, grapefruit, orange, mellow caramel, biscuits. Crisp and peppery finish. A well-done classic.

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, honey, fruit, bread, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque golden/amber beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium white/off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, honey and fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread, hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Could have used more distinct fruit flavours. It is not a bad beer by any means, but still could have been so much more.

Tapped at the source. Clear golden color. Thick soapy head. Nice Aroma of floral hops and malt. Taste is a balance of malt and mild bitter hops plus some black tea. Mild hoppy and malty finish. Very refreshing. Medium carbonated. Good body. Overall a very simple yet tasty pale ale. Kill your thirst and you’re ok. Anytime again.

Originally rated on 10/2/2008. "Aroma of pine with strong floral notes, pear, and pineapple as well. It pours a cloudy mid yellow body with a mid sized cap that remained throughout drinking, there were a few floaters present. Mouthfeel was a little watery but not bad, flavor of grapefriut and a little malt, slight bitterness in the finish.
