AleSmith X Extra Pale Ale
I picked up a bottle of AleSmith X Extra Pale Ale from Al’s of Hampden. The beer pours an extremely pale golden color with a frothy white head. The aroma consists of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, spruce, and pine. The taste is dry and bubbly on the tongue with a light pale malt flavor, tangerine, lemon and grapefruit citrus, and an peppery finish. The after taste is dry and has a little bit of caramel. The alcohol content is 5.0% ABV. The X is a light bodied beer that packs a big punch of citrus flavor and a peppery finish. It is quite refreshing and not too heavy, perfect for imbibing during those warm summer months.
