Pours brown with a well frothed head, diminishes. Starts with light nuts and toffee, finishes with a light floral hop with a mild lingering bitterness.

500ml brown bottle. Red orange pour, looks clear. Beige foam, creamy, good lacing. Aroma has big caramel malts. Taste has caramel and toffee malts with a bit of citrusy and earthy hop. Bitterness isnít quite where I would like it, but overall a good effort.

reebtogi (4042) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 4, 2014
500ml bottle pours an amber color with a 2 finger off-white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy with hints of caramel. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. A light to medium bodied brew with moderate carbonation. Definitely, on the lower end of the scale for this style.

Deep amber with a puffy white head. Medium bodied, soft, bready malts with some sweet notes and finishes slightly bitter and citrusy. Nice.

Hidden_Pooch (261) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUN 8, 2014
A highly quaffable bitter. Pours a handsome copper brown colour with a good head. Smells of nuts, toffee, and spice. Tastes of caramel, nuts, and mild floral hops. Has a good medium body with a slick texture and average carbonation. Not all that bitter, but a really great brew none the less.

Pours a light brown colour with an off white lasting head. Aroma of malt and toffee. Not overly bitter. I plan to buy this one again.

MarkoR (484) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2013
500 ml bottle from NB Liquor. Probably one of the best Picaroons. Pours a nice brown-copper colour with nice white head. Aroma is caramel. Taste of nuts. A pretty good beer.

plaugher (157) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 31, 2013
500ml bottle into pint glass. Pours a dark amber with a light lasting head. Good floral nose with a hint of toffee flavour, moderate lasting bitterness. Not too fond of most of the Picaroons fleet, but this is certainly worth a re-buy.

Mora2000 (5527) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Orange with a white head. Aroma is toffee, grass, earth and floral hops. Flavor is bitter grass, earth, nuts and toffee. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

shorlin (636) - St. Johnís, Newfoundland, CANADA - JAN 5, 2013
Nice pillowy head, pours a copper/brown thatís very nice. Aroma is quite nicely balanced between some initial caramel and the good hoppiness Iím looking for in this bitter. Taste is a lot nuttier than I expected, but the hop does come through in the end. Palate is OK, not a lot of aftertaste, but a solid beer nonetheless.
