500ml bottle. I purchased this beer thinking it was a British import only to find it was from a small brewery not far away in Fredericton, New Brunswick. I went to the Picaroons website and I was highly impressed as every day has a log book per batch with all the notes on the status of that particular batch with all the details. How cool!. My batch was 1124 brewed by Jordan Trethewey. Nice firm head on pour with natural gold hue body. Aroma a little soapy. Not too harsh for a micro with some citrus notes to it. Fresh and pleasing.

Poured from a bottle. Pours yellow-orange, little head but okay lacing. Some spice in the aroma, but I lose it on the taste. Citrus, some bitterness.

Aroma of malt, sour dough and spoiled fruit. Clear caramel color not much head. Taste of sour fruit, and malt. Watery feel with a malt finish.

johnnnniee (2293) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle from the brewery store on Queen st. Pours a deep golden color with a decent sized off white head that dissipates rather quickly. Aromas of bready malt with hints of toffee and butter with a bit of floral spicy hop to counter. The flavor is malty sweet with bits of toffee and caramel. Light earthy hop flavor to counter. Medium body and level of carbonation. Decent enough blonde ale.

czar (4279) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
pours hazy light yellow with a nice white head, some retention. bretts - who would have guessed?, floral-citrusy, hint of wheat, decent breadied malts, low phenols. bright carbonation, light body - tad watery, dry herbal finish. higher rating because of infection - that suited well for this brew..

Eructoblaster (2994) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle - 500ml. Nice golden body with a thin white creamy head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with bready hints. Taste is slightly dominated by hoppy flavors and ends with a short bitter/herbal finish. Not bad.

On tap at the garrison ale house in Fredericton. Piscatory will be mad but I didn’t take copius notes so am letting down the rate beer community. Sorry

GregClow (2881) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
Bottle. Slightly hazy golden colour with a few floaties and a massive white head. Aroma of soft, honeyish malt with some floral tones and an odd hint of banana. Medium bodied with a nice creamy character. Flavour - lightly toasted malt, note of golden syrup, hints of orange peel and cut flowers in the moderately hopped finish. A straightforward and pleasant golden ale.

500ml bottle. Golden colour. Good hoppy finish for a blonde ale. Good summertime ale.
