COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Medium-to full-bodied with a deep copper color and nutty malt flavor. Well-balanced by an assertive hop character.

A nice brew with a well-balanced flavor. A fairly unique malt flavor - a nice ale.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUL 7, 2004
Bright amber hue. Malts were bready and sweet (toffee and some caramel). Hops were earthy and perfumey. Some curious musk aromas. Overall, not bad, but not necessarily the flavors I seek out in a pale.

Bottle pours firey amber, small white dishwater like head, sticky lacing, with low carbonation.   Rather low hop profile on this one, but moreso a malty nutty aroma.   Extreme nutty and malty flavor, very unusual for a Pale Ale.   Doesn’t seem to me to be very hoppy at all.   Finish yields some of the hoppiness, but its very light.   Overall its not bad, but a bit too nutty/malty for my tastes.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2004
Tap@Pike. A fairly easy going pale ale. Aromatic hops of course. Some toast and toffee, with a lemony finish, a bit more English than American? Pretty spot on as far as pale ales go, just not overly interesting.

MrDick (363) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 15, 2004
On Tap "soft malt character" - this is lightly hopped and gives a subtle impression of the type of pale ale that I am accustomed to. Not too interesting but easy to drink.

GoldenCrown (18) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2004
Weak aroma. A cloudy dark amber. The taste is listless with a sharp alcoholic/metallic bite at the end. The aftertaste lasts 10 secs. Both the bite and the aftertaste are rather unpleasant.

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 31, 2004
Pours a ruddy topaz color with particulate floaters. White lacy head evaporates quickly. Mellow aroma hinting at maltyness. Nice smooth flavor that comes on with a even malt sweetness and is followed up by the roasted nutty flavors, and the gentle hoppy finish.

heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - MAR 7, 2004
Not a lot of hop aroma. Ome good crystal malt character, but sort of mired in the same undercarbonated blandness as the rest of the Pike beers.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2004
Pours a dark copper color with decent head and no lacing. Smell has an aluring sweetness to it that I can't place (honey and cloves?). Malt and hops are certainly there. Taste isn't like SN's or most other West Coast PAs. It reminds more more of an English Bitter, I'm thinking Blue Bird with more flavor and just a bit more hops. Cascades make an appearance. Mouthfeel is really good and has the Pike mineral feel to it. Drinkability is quit good. And awesome beer that escaped my notice for far too long.

3fourths (9055) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2004
A sweet spiced caramel apple aroma. Not much hop presence up front, with most flavor of caramel, cinnamon and apple coming out in mid drink and lasting long into a dry finish. Wow... the finish really resembles apple crisp.. very interesting.
