Named to commemorate the La Salle Hotel, once a Seattle bawdy house and the original home of the Pike Brewing Company. Old Bawdy is a vintage-dated, high-gravity beer brewed with peated Scotch malt. It has a deep golden bronze color, a fruity rich taste, and an aggressive and dominating hop character with smoky undertones that are reminiscent of Scotch whiskey.

CapFlu (4820) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2007
(Draught) Sampled at Uber Tavern. Pours a thin, white head with a deep orange body. Nose of strong oranges, highly malty. Strong acidic texture hits the tongue. Good orange peel flavour balances with a pleasant malty finish.

2006 on tap at BPP. Sweet maple syrup aroma. More hops than expected towards the finish. Glad they brought this one back!

Caskalefan (157) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2012 Although this great resurrected brew is still a bit young, the aroma is very complex, and full of nuance...rosewater, and jasmine tea, with caramel, and hops coming in right after. The body is creamy, and reminiscent of Worther’s Originals toffee, and there is more of the rosewater, and jasmine flavor, along with caramel, and plenty of hops (although the hoppiness stops short of being overbearing). There is also a citrus thing going on, particularly grapefruit, and mandarin orange, as well as a more brown fruit character (dates, figs), as well as persimmons. Wonderfully aggressive beer now, but will doubtlessly fuse, and mellow down the road.

pinkzambia (1694) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 17, 2007
Bottle - 2006 Vintage: Cloudy copper color with not much of a head. The aroma is dominated by hops and alcohol. The flavor is hoppy with sweet tones of alcohol followed by a bitter aftertaste and chewable vitamin C flavors and mild shoe polish. Enjoyable! Thanks BückDich for hooking me up with this rare Pike Brewery special.

IndianaRed (2960) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 17, 2007
Bottle pours a slightly hazy amber with a nice white creamy head. Spotty lacing. Sweet caramel nutty brown sugar aroma. Some alcohol notes as well. Flavor is nutty, smooth sweet, and the ABV is apparent. Plenty of bitter piney hops. Lingering bitter bite. Thanks Jordan

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 17, 2007
Bottle - 2006 Vintage: Orange amber color, light head and lacing. The nose is fresh yet vegetal with lots of hops and a strong alcohol and peaty notes. The flavor is strong, fairly unrounded and boring with a spicy scotchy note, excess bitterness and alcohol. The finish is strong and scratchy, lacking a smooth character. They should have held onto this in the brewery for another year until it was ready. Young, brash and agressive.

Bottle: Pours a clear orange/amber with a smaller white head that disapated quickly. Damn near bronze, just like the description! Fruity, hoppy aroma with hints of alcohol. Some citrus. Taste is citrus hops with fruits, caramel, and some malt presence. Smooth, warming finish. Quite good. Thanks to Jordan for sharing.

asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Bottle - 2006 vintage. Pours a hazy light copper color with a nice white head on top. Aroma is mostly full of malts with caramel and fruit taking dominance. Hints of hops and alcohol are in the aroma also. Flavor is mixing between fresh hops and caramel. The alcohol is pretty well hidden but hints of it do sneak in. The beer finishes the palate off with a dry bitterness. Definitely a young tasting beer, could definitely use some age. I will try again in 6 months and see where it is then.

Ibrew2or3 (7511) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 6, 2006
12/02/06 Walk the Line Barleywine Festival, Dunedin, FL. 1998 vintage. Poured a clear copper color with an off white head. The aroma was sweet and a bit fruity. Smells like a Barleywine. This beer has a nice Barleywine flavor too with a dark fruitiness, caramel malts and a hint of pine hops. The flavor seems to end with a bit of a woody character.
