Serving: 12 oz bottle poured into plastic wine cup; on the Victoria Clipper while traveling to Seattle.

Appearance: Clear, tawny amber with decent off white foam.

Smell: Aroma ranges from raw malt to toasted grains and caramel.

Taste: Deeply malty with toffee notes. Earthy hops lend background bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium towards full body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: More towards and amber than Scotch ale, but drinkable and relatively fully flavored; especially good as an option during travel.

Pours a dark caramel color with minimal head. Mouthfeel is light with a refreshing floral finish. Pine, woodsy feel. Overall not a ton of taste though. Fairly bland until the aftertaste

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a beer can glass on 06.13.14.

A: Very thin tan mess of a head. It recedes from splotches to nothing. Cloudy brown body.

S: Very faint caramel and earthiness.

T: Follows the nose.

M: It feels flat even though there are some bubbles on the tongue.

O: This was a dead beer. It looked and tasted like flavored water. I don't have an idea of how old it was, but this is the 3rd Pike beer out of 3 that I've had like this. Drain pour.

Had this on tap at Pike. Nothing real special, just average. There wasn't anything that stood out positive or neg. Would have liked more ABV. I compare it to Oskar Blues Old Chub without the 8%.
