Notes / Commercial Description:
In early 2014, Tony Gwynn’s team approached AleSmith to create a distinctive beer for the baseball legend. A meeting was called at the Gwynn household, which included a sampling of AleSmith beers to identify Tony’s preferences. He wanted the beer to be “light with a kick” which he elaborated further to mean full of hop character and light in body and color. The result of the Gwynn family’s feedback on test batches rendered a golden pale ale full of American hop flavor and aroma, with a subdued bitterness and a malty sweet finish. AleSmith San Diego Pale Ale .394 pays tribute to the city that Tony loved and the career high batting average that he achieved in ‘94. Discover what happens when a Hall of Fame perfectionist crafts a beer with a world-class brewery. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Tony and Alicia Gwynn Foundation (TAG).

Poured into an Alesmith grumbler a few hours ago. Pours a very clear golden orange with a light silvery head

Nose: ripe nectarines with bready malt, fresh piney base

Taste: lightly malty with mellow sour tangerine, peaches with pine and resin, Meyers lemon and slight minty tinge. Finishes piney zesty, with juiciness stone fruit and warm
bread

Feel: light bodied, zesty, juicy, vibrant, mildly thin

Great beer. I think this is exactly what I would want in a beer of the so-called "session IPA" category that has taken over. Alas, "San Diego Pale Ale" might be a more appropriate and satisfying label. Cheers Alesmith!
