Pours a nice bourbon caramel with a small fleeting white residue. Brilliant clarity. Smells of toast, english tea, some brown sugar and a wee bit of cinnamon. Flavor carries plenty of bread, some yeast and slight oxidation (cardboard), hints of tea. Medium bodied with light carb and a noninvasive finish. A decent, approachable beer. I can see myself grabbing this on a cool fall day.

Pours dark red with a sub-one-finger head, slightly off white. Smells of heavy, buttery scotch and molasses. Flavor follows with a mix of fruits and butterscotch, with a super smooth finish. Not much peaty or smokey flavor here, but I was Ok with that. A little slick, juicy, with medium carbonation. Was hungover when I had this, but was a pretty easy drinking scotch ale. Pike really impressed me on my Seattle visit.

Pours a ruby amber color in tulip glass. Off-white head dissipates pretty quickly. Minimal lacing on sides of glass.

Smell has an apple cider quality to it. Little malty smell comes through as this warms.

Taste is sweet malt up front. Some fruity notes are present. Mild bitterness for me.

Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied. Average carbonation.

Overall this was enjoyable. Thanks to my mother and father-in-law for this one.
