AleSmith X Extra Pale Ale
Brewery: AleSmith Brewing Company
Style: American Pale Ale
Format: 650ml Bottle
AleSmith X Extra Pale Ale is a clean, light-coloured, light-bodied ale. The People's Choice award winner at the 2000 San Diego Real Ale Festival and the second runner-up in 2001, it has a good dose of dry hops balanced by a gentle sweetness, giving an almost sweet-and-sour effect. Appearance: Light golden colour, and a nice white head, with good retention when properly served. Flavour: Starts off with almost tingling flavours of citrus and pine, balanced by a nice malty sweetness, then fades to a dry finish with a lingering hoppiness. Aroma: Strong lemony-citrusy character, with sweet malt and pine in the background. Mouthfeel (body/texture): Smooth, light-bodied.
