This is probably the first micro brew I ever heard of, long before I was legal and long before I thought beer was actually tolerable in my mouth. And what a name. Pete's Wicked Ale. It conjured images of a black, thick tar-like drink. And my friend's dad knew Pete so I figured it was some nasty homebrew that the guy figured he could sell. Years ago, when I first had Pete's Wicked Ale for the first time, I'm sure that I thought it was phenomenal just because of that connection. Yes, it is a good beer but it pales in comparison to so many other smaller brews out there. But it is a good transition beer for those looking to come over to more on the craft side. But I digress...
It pours a pretty penny copper red. But try as I might, the head on these pours were always tiny and pathetic, gone quickly.
The nose is a light raspberry wheat, which is odd since this isn't any raspberry wheat beer.
The flavor is light and sweet. Good but nothing there to really define a flavor. While holding it in your mouth, getting ready to swallow, the hops come through and the slightly bitter feel comes out. Again, not bad but it didn't blow me away.
Holding it in your mouth, the feeling is a little more tangy and tingly than I'd prefer. Pretty wet, though.
This one does not sit well for me once it is down the pipe. I always seem to get a grumbly stomach. Wicked thing. Good to get again every once in a while, though.

Medium off white head dies quickly leaving a medium or less lacing above a clear amber colored beer.
Mild Aroma of an almost sweet caramel malt with a light nutty edge to it.
Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with its sweet caramel and nutty grain malts, maybe a bit more sweet than the aroma.
A slight bitter drying aftertaste on the light medium to medium bodied beer.
The slight bittering effect of the aftertaste is just enough to make you want to take another drink.
