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...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange honey color. Decent pale ale, malty rye, honey, mellow hoppiness. Drinkable though slightly watery. Probably cooler to drink it at Pike’s fish market is Seattle because it’s nothing special.

A little bit of nuttiness and citrus in the aroma and some bitterness in the flavor but overall this brew was rather bland.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 01.09.14.
A: See through rust color. No head. Some opaqueness at top.
S: Sweet malt. Caramel. Picking up black olive too.
T: Caramel, burnt toast, black olive.
O: The black olive flavor prompted a drain pour. Almost every beer that I’ve had from Pike has ended the same way and they’re local to me. Maybe they have QC issues.
