Ale Smith Extra Pale Ale
Ale Smith Extra Pale Ale

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.
