2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very easy to drink. Doesnít look or taste like a regular pale ale. More hoppy than most and still sweet. Okay, but nothing compared to the other brews by this establishment. Fruity notes are evident with a crystal malt pairing

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a pretty good beer that isnít really true to style. It is really a cross between a Amber and a Pale and lacks the punch of either style. It has a really nice color but is too malty for an American Pale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange, slight haze, 1.5 finger head, lacing not bad.
Aroma is a middle-ish pungent floral hops and earthy malts, not overpowering, but enjoyable.
Taste is a bit bolder, with the earthy aspects really coming out. ITís got a good chunk of crystal malts (I assume from the flavor and body), and some nice bready notes, and perhaps some fruity undertones.
Body is fairly easy drinking, medium to light, moderate carbonation, with a fairly dry, pungent earthy finish.
Itís a tasty beer, another good one from Pike. Actually, I have liked everything Iíve gotten from Pike brewery so far, this one is no exception. Not sure which is my favorite, but I know Iíll buy Pike again in the future. I also know that thereís at least two more Pike beers available here that I havenít tried yet!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pike Pale Ale has a medium, off-white head, decent lacing left behind, and a bubbly, clear, orange-golden appearance. The aroma is of sweetness, bread, and bread crust. Taste is of the same, with an iced tea note coming through. Bitterness is not high, and the mouthfeel is mostly watery. Pike Pale Ale finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and enjoyable. Overall, this is a really nice one. Another winner from Pike Brewing. RJT
