Better on tap and ice cold during a big feast of bbq. Certainly on the sweet side and some thing I quaff to wash down messy rib at my local bbq joint. A decent no brainer beer that has a touch of flavour to throw in the mix. Not something I’d drink as a regular beer though.
Serving type: on-tap

4/5 rDev +21.6%

Presentation: 12oz brown bottle. No freshness date.
Appearance: Dark copper with a off-white/tan foam head. It settles quickly to a lasting lace, with a bit of stick.
Smell: Rich caramel, fruity esters, faint touch of burnt raisin.
Taste: Body is light to medium. Mouthfeel is a bit creamy, smooth, but also a bit coarse. Semi-astringent upfront with a sharp hop bitterness that fades quickly. Fruity esters rear-up, riding in on the hop flavour then the beer smoothes into the malt profile. Subdued caramel, faint chocolate, toasted/biscuit, caramelized fruits and even a touch of sweet grape. There's also a distinct twang to the beer that seems to be the running theme throughout. Nice balance, overall. Finish is dry with raw grain notes.
Notes: Pete's Wicked Ale is a found memory for me. It's simply a solid American Brown Ale -- always available and always enjoyable as a session beer or a fallback beer.
And, even though Pete probably doesn't brew anymore and that they are owned by Gambrinus ... I really like this beer. I also like Pete's new change in marketing direction ... let's just hope they don't catch any of those Corona kuddies from the Gambrinus folk.
