This is the beer that got me started exploring the craft beer movment in California. I remember when it was only on tap in Los Angeles and the bay area. It will always be fondly remembered as an institution. Not the best beer, but it was my go to beer. Totally smashable. Miss you guys.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Pours a dark amber with a modest soapy beige head. Aromas of cherry, roasted malt and molasses. Body is a little thin and the mouthfeel a little syrupy. Some tartness from the fruit and sweetness from the malts are present and fairly well-balanced.

"malty, with a light, hard to notice aroma. body is a bit thin, and there is a slight bitter aftertaste, but no hop aroma. nothing worth trying here...no surprises."

Bottle years ago in the US. It was a solid brown ale with a nicely balanced maltiness. Not too sweet or cloying, a good ale. It’d be considered tame today but there’s something to be said for a well rounded sessionable beer.

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 it’s tasty and goes down very smooth. Serving type: bottle 11-01-2010

An old standby, Pete’s was cleaner and smoother than most brown ales I’ve tried. Sad to see it go.

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.

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.
