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.

chinchill (3779) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2015 22 oz shared bottle. Hazy brown body with a good head. Sweet aroma with partly hidden alcohol. The alcohol is obvious in tasting but blends nicely with the sweet malts. Has more hops and is less sweet than the Clown Shoes Crunkle Sam that preceded it.

Intensely floral with a bit of bitterness. The floral is not balanced out at all making it rather hard to drink.
