This beer doesn't lack in carbonation. Perhaps that should be an indicator. It doesn't have much of a smell or a flavor that can be written about. It is also blonde in color with a huge white head that leaves volumes of sticky lacing.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 01.28.14.

A: Yellow with a 1/4 finger head.

S: Banana, bubblegum, citrus, orange. Smells like an otter pop.

T: Peanut butter dominates. Lemon, orange are there too.

M: Smooth.

O: I think that I got an old beer. There was sediment on the bottom. Maybe it was unfiltered, but it was so uninteresting, I don't care about checking. They don't date the bottle, so whatever. It had very strange flavors for a blonde. I would not recommend this one.

Thanks Donkster46! Props.

Serving style : 12 oz bottle poured for appearance

Appearance : Pillowy four fingered head, recedes at a moderate pace, good retention. Leaves licks and flicks of lacing around the glass. Body is honey colored, about half and half opacity/transparency. Solid.

Smell : Holy pears. Wow! It's like I opened a can of pears. Some light wheat, granny smith apple, fruity spice. This is so aromatic and exciting.

Taste : Fruity apple and pear are there, with a slight sourness. I could do without the sour but the beer's taste overall is fantastic. It starts with the fruit, then a huge wrecking ball of sourness, and ends with a quasi-potpourri, air-dried apple...taste. As the beer warms it begins to take on a medicinal taste but it's a blonde - so drink it cold.

Out of the bottle it's a huge hit of carbonation with the pear and sour ale flavors.

Mouthfeel : Creamy, smooth, carbonated, ending slightly stiff. Shows character.

Overall : Again, I am impressed with Scuttlebutt's offering here. If I ever had a reason to go to Washington state, it would be to visit Seattle, and then buzz over to Everett and load up on Scuttlebutt. These guys know how to make a solid beer.

Appearance has a light gold yellow color supporting a fair head leaving nill lace. Smell is grainy, malty and hop. Taste of the grain, lightly sweet in the malt and mild hop flavor. Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation. Overall a nice easy drinking session ale.
