This pale ale from the great north woods of Seattle pours with a wonderful nose of malts (I guessed Caramel, but it turns out to be a mélange of pale, Munich, crystal, and malted wheat) all adding up to evoke the sweet breadiness of an English biscuit.
The Pike Pale pours with a tight half-inch head with more lacing than your grandma's Irish curtains. Designated a pale, this "heirloom amber" is surprisingly well balanced, with its hop profile of Magnum, Willamette, and East Kent Goldings not really making their appearance until the brew warms a bit.
The clean mouthfeel seems to lend itself to maximum quaffablity as Bay Area Indian summer temps are on the rise.
