3.54/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours an orangey-ruby, cloudy with short-lived fizzy off-white head. There's a little bit of lacing. The aroma is fairly simple, with just nondescript malt sweetness. The taste is about the same. There's not a lot to either. It does have a decent weight to the body, though. A surprising miss from Pike.

3.69/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12oz bottle, no date, served in a Shaker pint glass.

Appearance: Bright clear copper. Little to no head except for a very thin ring at the edge. Some strands of lacing.

Smell: Not a lot. Some caramel malt and very little else.

Taste: What it lacks in aroma it makes up for in taste. Deep toasted malt and caramel sweetness. Solid malt backbone. Some mild bitter finishes mixing in with toffee and English bitter / mild citrus hop finish. Not amazing or wow in flavor, but compared to the lackluster aroma, definitely full flavor.

Mouthfeel: Definitely full bodied, not watery, but otherwise nothing special. A hint of some stickiness on the teeth.

Overall / Drinkability: Not an amazing scotch ale/wee heavy, just ok. Does go well with food though (beef burger sliders and deviled eggs in this case). While not very remarkable, this does not mean it's bland, just that I've had better examples of the style. Of final note, it's actually quite drinkable - a very good beer to drink in quantity and wash down food with as a complement. Just enough flavor to complement and be enjoyable, not too much to overwhelm or clash with a meal. So I'll give it higher marks on drinkability than on being a good scotch ale.
