Bottle. Reddish amber, small offwhite head. Mild hops in the aroma, & fruit. Flavor is bitter finishing with a slight sweetness. A well balanced session ale, IMHO.

Fantastic beer to have by itself or with fish and chips! Try it! Smooth, with a bit of an afterbite. This is one of Picaroons best, not as heavy as the red, but with enough volume to make your tastebuds happy.

Dark copper colour with a small off white head. The nose is citrusy. Citrus flavour well balanced by sweet malt on the finish. Good low level of carbonation works for this beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber body, slight head present. Lots of carbonation!
Aroma: hops first off, with slight lamts, and mild earth tones. Taste is strong malts, a little weak on the hops though. Sour and bitter hops finish. Decent.

Thanks Mustang3 for the opportunity to try this! Pours a browinsh body with a red hue. Head is this and beige. Aromas are strong hops, malty sweetness, and some grassy notes. Taste is malty, lots of hops here, but a little off balance. Still good though. Nice hop bite in the finish, malty taste as well. Overall a neat beer!

Wow this beer has recently improved. The last bottle I had was very intense in the hop aroma department -- almost West Coast style. Overall, a great bitter, with lots of minerally components from the water (much like UK real ale), plus the tasty fruity house yeast profile and plenty of hop bitterness, aroma and flavour. Great session beer - if it were lower in alcohol. A great beer to serve in cask conditioned format (please!)

Amber in colour, a bit cloudy Toffee/caramel aroma. Just the right amount of bitterness. Some nutty flavour. Dry finish. This beer is a favorite amongst locals.
