Got this in a trade. I love trying all new Scotch Ales, even if I end up not liking them.
Pours too light and cloudy and frothy for my taste. Smells like a non-distinct, non-BMC craft ale of vague characteristics.
Tastes the same. Light hops, slight malty feel, very thin. Not offensive but nothing to cheer for. Carbonation is too high for a SA.
If someone had presented this to me as an Irish Red Ale, it would be a nice effort. But as a Scotch ale, it's waaay off the mark.
Sad for Scotch lovers like myself. But a tasty red ale in the Sam Adams, or O'Hara style nonetheless.

Pours two fingers on a hazy dark straw colored body.
The aroma is fruity: apricot, apple and pear. A touch too ripe though.
The taste is ripe apricot, bitter grapefruit, with a sweet finish. Unbalanced.
The texture is heavy, a little sticky with moderate carbonation.
This one never gets it all together at the same time. Individual elements were okay, but...

On tap at the Daily Grill in downtown Seattle. I've lived in the area for 20+ years all told and have never sampled Pike Pub profferings, but a day on my feet with the Black Friday throngs convinced me that I needed a little more.
This beer delivered the goods. Appearance was consistently opaque, almost sultry - this ale would indeed be seductive. Mouth feel is crisp and velvety. Two or three of these and you will be on your way.
