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.

Bottle (1998): Caramel in color, hazy, small off-white fizzy head, spotty lacing.   Sweet caramel malt nose... not much hop presence after all these years.   Sweet malty start, caramel and toffee, with a noticable floral like back end.   Seems to have mellowed out over the years, but it has held up rather well.   I wish I had more of this!   Medium to full body and mouthfeel.   Clean finish, lingering sweetness with a touch of that floral aspect.   Perhaps even a bit citrusy as well.   Quite tasty!   Oh how I love these impromptu back room tastings at Bottleworks.

(bottle conditioned vintage 1998). Deep beautiful copper color, cloudy despite careful decanting. Huge, thick, vinuous mouthfeel with faint carbonation. Nice estery fruit front end with an engaging long, drawn-out strongly bitter finish. A little too bitter to be well-balanced, despite the enormous malt. No phenolic or smoky undertones in my glass, although a nice sherry-like oxidation was present, though not overly distracting. A nice beer overall that says "let's have another!"

Crit (3420) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2003
Draft: Gorgeous sparkling amber color. Alcohol nose. Malt alcohol taste. Rough around the edges, needs to mellow.

My sample was 2 years old. Nut brown and thick. VERY malty, complex and well balanced. Great beer!
