This is easily my favourite of all the offerings that Pike has to offer. Nothing exceptional, but it is a tasty, malty (but not overly so) beer that drinks very smoothly. I definitely would buy again and the price point isn't bad either. This is the first scotch style ruby ale I've tried and it's made me interested to try other offerings in this vein.

Review from notes.

A: Pours a deep amber color with a foamy one finger head on top. Sporadic lacing.

S: Nice malty aroma, some caramel, some brown sugar, and toasted malt.

T: It is slightly scotchy with more caramel and smoky peat. Some bready malt and faint fruitiness.

M: Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation.

O: A decent scotch ale, again nothing really special.

Serving type: on-tap

No bottle date

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.
