AleSmith Old Numbskull
2013 vintage Pours a copper, clear body. Head is 1/4 inch and beige. Lacing is great and head retention is good for a barleywine. Smells of caramel malt, toffee, slight butterscotch. Candied ginger is detected.,theres also some metallic copper coming through as beer warms. Alcohol is light for 11%, no hops present. Taste is big on caramelized sugar, liquid gold malt extract, and toffee that ends spicy. Alcohol becomes apparent the more i sip on it. Mouthfeel is nice, syrupy and slightly carbonated. Head retention added a silky presence going down. Overall this is a good interpretation of what a classic barleywine should taste like. Extremely malt forward and sweet with a alcohol/liquour finish. Great Desert beer, would love to try barrel aged versions.

AleSmith Sublime Mexican Lager
My daughter had two pints of this on 14th Jan 2018 at the Stones Brewery in Escondido, so I had a few swigs of each one to help her out (I think I had between a half to three quarters of a pint overall). Came a misty amber colour, white crown that hung around for a while. Corn aroma and taste, fairly sweet. Ideal drink to have while sat in the brewery gardens awaiting your call to the table.

AleSmith Evil Dead Red
DATE: January 14, 2018... OCCASION: coming down after a thrillingly improbable finish to the Vikings/Saints game... GLASSWARE: Hop Devil nonick... pours a dark ruby red body, murky and foreboding--too dense to see through... the thick, creamy off-white head sits like a velvet cake frosting, and it laces like a stormy sky, and plateaus as a two-finger mesa--attractive! Immediate resin, spruce, and earthy malts leave the best impression; secondary scents of toasted malts that suggest soon-to-be-born bread, a little yeast funk, and some vegetable... traces of citric aroma, but not as much as expected... a creamy, frothy, breathy ale that is smooth, soft and extremely drinkable--nothing dead here, though a bit of butter accompanies the finish... a lingering, pleasant experience.... the flavor is resin, mango, peach, and light pine... the caramel promised is secondary, with the sweetness blunted by vegetable and toasted bread malts... I like the overall experience, with its creamy comfortably encouraging the next sip, and each sip lacking a bite at a middle-of-the-road ABV... ultimately, a beer that probably pairs with Autumn well; here in January, it stands well but not out--other ambers have been maltier, sweeter, hoppier.... this does enough to be in the second tier of that conversation...

On tap at Red Cow North Loop. Pours a very cloudy orange gold with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of juicy citrus that is sweet with sweet grains underlying. Flavor is a bit duller in sweetness and has lots of earthiness and a light grain backbone.

AleSmith / Pizza Port Logical Choice
12 ounce can. Hazy honey gold color. Frothy white head leaves a random, clingy lace. Toasted malt nose hints at fruit and alcohol. Bittersweet utterly malt flavor upfront. Notes of stale canned peaches and dried apricots. Warming (burning) alcohol soon follows. Then more old peaches and dried fruit. Piney hops meld with over the hill tropical fruits to leave you bemused and befuddled. Or perhaps unwashed and somewhat slightly dazed. Go forward and start a revolution in your head.

AleSmith Double Red IPA
A 12 fl. oz. bottle, bottled on 19th September 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass. It was a clear dark amber copper colour with a big two finger light beige head that had great retention and left nice lacing. Aromas of caramel malts, grapefruit zest, citrus rind and pine. Tastes similar to the aroma with sweet caramel malts, grapefruit flesh, zest and rind, grass and pine. Finish was nice with moderate bitterness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, solid tasting Red IPA with good balance of malt and hops.

AleSmith Speedway Stout - Bourbon Barrel Aged: Vietnamese Coffee
Nice, dark opaque colour. Massive coffee, lot of whisky (completely different from bourbon flavours though) little bit of vanilla, litle sour, chocolate, cocoa, marzipan, caramel, some cookies. Very strong alcohol, as for 12% - no need to drink fresh. Nice texture, oily body, but little disappointing for the legend.

AleSmith Lil Devil
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 30A/24B). Bottle 35.5 cl - Batch unknown (BBF unknown). AROMA: medium-high aroma of oranges, pear drop and slight coriander. medium malty-sweet background with a slight alcohol note. APPEARANCE: gold color and clear. medium-low white head with low to no retention. TASTE: similar to the aroma with medium-low notes of oranges and slight pears. background of malt with a grainy-sweet impression. PALATE: medium-low body. medium carbonation. OVERALL: a nice belgian pale ale but where the added spices are beginning to fade.

AleSmith Speedway Stout - Mokasida Coffee
12/28/2016 -- from notes: 10oz on tap at Lucky Dog Grille. Black color, with a good light brown head. Leaves good lace. Nice complex coffee aroma over top the roast malt -- seeing that blueberry. Earthy, roasty, cocoa. Bigger body, kind of chewy, kind of slick on the palate. Kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Moderate sweet taste, but not at all sugary nor cloying. Drinks heavy and thick, but otherwise hides the alcohol pretty well. No burn nor bite and little warmth even, for the 12%. Moderate-plus bitter taste balances out the sweetness a bit. A great coffee imperial stout. Another solid speedway variant, with an interesting coffee feature.

AleSmith Speedway Stout - Hammerhead
3/23/2016 -- from backlog notes: 2016 draft. Good lace. Bigger coffee than probably any other speedway I've tried, which I love. Touch of dark choc. Bigger, chewy body. Bigger bitterness. Light bite on the finish. Awesome overall.
