3.3/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

22 ounce bottle - $3.99 at Total Wine & More in Orlando.

My assessment is similar to that of ChainGangGuy so I have borrowed some of his words.

Appearance: Pours out an cloudy brown body with a finger plus change worth of off-white suds. Head dissipates rapidly with little evidence that it was ever there.

Smell: Modest nose smelling of pale and basic bready malts. Minor notes of caramel and light brown sugar. Slight hint of cherry. To my nose, any hint of peat is imaginary.

Taste: Initial impression of toasted malts with caramel and brown sugar. It lacks depth, however. Peat is more evident in the taste than in the nose. Soft ripe fruitiness exposing a small hint of cherry. Simple, subdued hop character with a minute spiciness and bitterness. Final hints of peat and spice on the drying finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-low carbonation.

Drinkability: Lacks richness and depth. It's drinkable. But is that what we really want from this style...something that goes down easy.

Serving type: bottle

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.
