Pike "Naughty Nellie"
The Pike Brewing Company - Seattle, Washington USA
American Blonde Ale (ABV 5.5%) (IBU 24)

[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]

Rating: 3.1/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 11/20

The pour was a hazy medium orange with a slight brownish hue and an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head, which did allow for some fair streaky lacing.

The aroma was of a light grain malt, floral hops and a sweaty yeast with notes of citrus (orange), apricot and a mild peppery spice.

The taste a tad malty with a mild apricot sweetness from the start but quickly progressed into a hoppy bitter taste with a note of citrus peel and a slight peppery finish. The flavor stuck around for quite a long time with a mildly hoppy fruity taste left to linger.

Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a prickly carbonation.

Overall a nice crisp, hoppy Organic Ale that had just enough fruity sweetness to take the harsh bite out of the hoppy citrus peel ending...
