Petes Wicked Ales were some of the first craft/non-Bud style beers that started me on the road to realy good beer. This beer has a medium brownish color with coppery highlights. This is top by a small quick fading white foam head. It has a mostly sweet malty character, in taste and aroma which is faily light overall.

A - Pours a slightly hazy cranberry brown. Small head that dissipates quickly. S - Sugary malt, roasted walnuts, molasses, some unknown tart fruit comes through as well. T - Caramel malt, pecans, woody figs, muted citrus adds some bitterness. Finishes slightly crisp with a toasted caramel aftertaste. M - Light to medium body. Good flavors going on here. This beer is nothing to look at and the nose is not great but itís tasty and goes down very smooth. Serving type: bottle 11-01-2010

Originally reviewed: 11/7/08. Pours a nice crimson brown. Crystal clear with good amount of bubbles rising through. Nothing spectacular in the smell. Smells floral with some pine notes. Sweet smelling. Nice taste to this though. Creamy smoothness brings with it a nice mild to medium hop bitterness at the finish. This is a very drinkable brew. Pairs really well with my burger. I could drink a few of these.

reebtogi (4035) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 6, 2012
355ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a 2 finger white head that settles quickly leaving only a few specks of lacing behind. Aroma is caramel and earthy notes with some toasted grains. Taste is caramel malty sweetness with some earthy hop bitterness. Medium body and light carbonation. A pretty decent brown ale.

Bottle. Aroma has notes of cereal malts, caramel and toast. Deep brown hue with a small off-white head that mostly diminished and left little lace. Flavor is medium sweet. Palate is light/medium bodied and watery average. Overall a decent brown with an ok caramel malt character that was enjoyable to drink.

Bottle pours a copper with a white head. Tastes smells of caramel, bread, not bad at all a bit sweet but I like that better then lots of hops.

Sad to see this one go down the marketting/declining sales proverbial tube as it was an innovator of itís time!
Fiery orange copper in the glass, radiant and dazzling with an intermittent and fine bead. Houdini disappearing head leaves nothing more than a beige film on the surface. Earthy, dusty and just a little vinous is the pronouncedly malty, mud and fruit cake nose. Woody, peaty and earthy in the mouth. Roasted and raw nuts shine through in abundance. A bitter herbal backdrop gives it and edge on the swallow before a dry nutty and woody swallow that fades quickly. Very light, almost watery in feel, the carbonation is a little biting and gassy for my liking. Promising appearance and aroma overrun by an overattenuated beer that fails to delight. Still, goes down wickedly!! (12fl.oz, no date stamp, Cellarbrations, Carlisle)
