This week, Matt and I picked up a big ol’ bottle of Ale Smith Extra Pale Ale. I’d never had it but it had a big X on it so it had to be good, right? Lucky for us it was. While it is indeed a bit paler than most IPAs, the flavor was all there. This had some full on hops flavor without being too bitter. Crisp with a pretty smooth finish. This beer earned an 8.5 from Matt and a solid 8.0 from me.
Shane thinks just a straight up Rosati’s Deep Dish pizza would go great with this one, and I think he’s right. But keep it simple. Deep Dish, extra cheese, and sausage. Done.
