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.

nice caramel color, some carbonation and bubbles rising to the top. nothing really there in the smell (maybe a cereal/corn kind of aroma) and the taste is rather generic, but easy-going and sessionable. slight hop bitterness one-ups the malts but my kilt isn't lifting.
overall, a very general kind of brew. easy to drink with a decent abv, but like the others from this brewery, not terribly memorable. probably very nice fresh out of the tap at the brewery...

12oz : tulip

Slightly hazy, amber red with a thin, light toffee colored head.

Huge caramel malt notes for the most part, some light floral notes.

Medium+ body. Low, foamy carbonation.

Nothing offensive, but also nothing particularly exciting either.
