Excellent bitter. Pours orange with an average head. Aroma is very pungent, earthy, sour and sweet. Flavor is biting, somewhat sour and finishes sweet. This would go excellent with chinese takeout.

on tap at Taproom. presented with noticeable head. Nice rich red color. High diacytel, low esters on the nose and palate. After allowing to warm to cellar temps, exhibited modest malt character. Bitterness was perfect. lacing persistent. Finished dryer then I like for an ESB.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650 ml bottle, thanks OKBeer. Cloudy amber beer with a thick off-white head. Aroma is lightly woody (fuggles), over some light sweet malt, perhaps faint diacetyl. Flavour is very earthy and dusty, with a little bit of sweetness and a hint of dried fruit. Earthy dry bitterness. Finishes much dryer than most bitters. Quite minerally as well. As it warms more woodiness and a touch of vanilla come forward.

Bottled. Fruity and caramel aroma. Brown color, beige head, good lace. Light sweet, caramel, toffee, light nutty, herbal, bitter, medium body, light dry, wonderful herbal and refreshing bitterness. It’s a pitty bitters like this aren’t available in Holland. I love them.

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.

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!
