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.

Extra pale must mean extra pale. This is a very pale light straw colored yellow. Light in hops and body. Must admit that I expected fuller bodied. Still very drinkable and session able. Light hops and malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells very, very nice, but the taste . . . nothing.

I was warned, the back of the bottle says, that it embodies drink-ability.

But the front label says: extra pale ale, with big X´s ?
So from that, you might expect it to be extra hoppy, well, its not.

When it warms, you start to sense a bit of bitterness.
The bottle says: serve at 45-50 degrees Fahrenheit.
I would definitely say, that its better at 50 than 45 degrees.

But I don't get this beer at all.

The hops are sweet, but they are just detectable, no noise, no nothing.

From my perspective, this is a very boring beer.

Some people might call it pleasant, but I might actually put this in the rainwater category, that many of largest American brewery's, sadly have resorted to so often.

At its very, very best, I might call this beer flowery, but in a very subdued sense. And there is just to much nothing taste there as well, to justify such an adjective.

The X´s and that Alesmith anvil on the bottle is completely wrong, they aught to paint decorative flowers on it, to at least try and emphasize its few qualities.

Light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, thin feel,

The aroma is full of hops, pine, malt, orange, citrus, lemon peel and orange zest. The color is reminiscent of mandarine juice with a haze to it. The taste is full of hops, malt, pine, orange, citrus and lemon peel. A nice beer!

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2017 Ragylden med varigt skum. Klar humleprofil i næsen. Også citrus. Humle dominerer også i smagen. Det bitre vinder over det søde og giver en amerikansk pale ale over middel.

650 ml bottle. Pours a bright clear gold/amber with moderate head. Aromas of dank orangey hops and sweet malts. Flavors of grainy malts, a lfruity orange, a little pine and grass. Nothing special from Alesmith.

Fules (1394) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - SEP 9, 2017
Közepes, nem túl tartós hab, opálos borostyán szín. Citrusos, déligyümölcsös illat. Kissé száraz, citrusos, fűszeres, enyhén déligyümölcsös ízek. Közepesen testes, közepesen szénsavas, közepesen keserű. Rendkívüli egyensúllyal rendelkezik, nagyon jól csúszik. Remek sör.
