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

Sample at the brewpub. Pours dark copper with great lacing. Aroma has fruit, caramel and straw, with some old dishwater. Taste is of heavy sweet malt with light citrus. Finishes short and malty/citrus. Blah.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours an amber color with a fairly small white head. A little bit of hoppiness to the nose, but it’s dominated by some slightly sweet maltiness. Taste is also slightly sweet, which I found odd for a pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz Bottle. The pour was a hazy caramel brown with a small (1 finger or less) light brown frothy head that diminished down to a thin cap with good spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a sweet light bread malt, floral hops and a light soapy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (orange) and a light fruity ester.
The taste was a malty bitter-sweet and had a touch of caramel throughout, with a light fruity hoppiness and a smidgen of citrus at the end. The flavor lasted an average time with a slightly fruity citrus peel bitterness left behind.
Mouthfeel was just beyond light in body and dry in texture with a medium carbonation.
Overall a pretty decent Pale Ale with a slight fruity appeal and a mildly bitter hoppiness...

The commercial description says it all. Amber in color, nutty aroma and flavor. Very light hops presence. Not bad, not excellent.
