4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Prolly biassed a bit cause this is most likely my favourite beer label of all time, and because this was the precursor to me getting on the pilsner train these days after the long arduous Russian Imperial Stout Season (poor me). It’s nice to have a 7% Imperial Pilsner kicking around though. If only this were available in Ontario. Thankfully my dad brought a little shipment back from Christmas with grandpa. This could be my perfect summer beer. Hoppy, high ABV, but so freakin refreshing. More refreshing than Pilsner Urquell, which I love, but is by no means as refreshing. Light tasting with full intense flavour, and still decent chewiness for the palate. Aroma: grass, flowers, and honeysuckle salad. WTF?! Hey, whatevs; FEELS GOOD.

Bottle to pint glass
Apple, yeast, and malt. Pours a transparent light yellow with a little carbonation, and a long lasting 1 cm fluffy and creamy white head.
The taste is malt, grains, some lemon, and some hoppy bitterness.

pours unclear bright yellow with a frothy white head, good retention and nice lacing patterns. floral and dusty bretts, citrus and dry herbs, fairly malted - hint of bread, bold green and citrus finish. average carbonation, light body - oily. unintentional bretts and a pleasant surprise.. rating is obviously biased by bugs’ presence.

I think I have a very different taste in beers from other raters. I am enchanted with Picaroons. I live in California and am sad I can’t get my hands on it!

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy golden colour with big white head lacing the glass nicely. Aromas consist of sweet pale malts, a trace of diacytal, noble hop presence. Flavours of crisp maltiness, light bitterness, some sweetness. Easy drinking for 7 percent. Refreshing.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy golden correct with a frothy white head & nice sticky lacing. Aroma of yeast, some diacetyl & sweet honey. Taste is yeast, light butterscotch and a nice hoppy bitterness. Nice smooth easy drinking beer, but for the style they missed the mark with having diacetyl in the aroma and flavor.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from The Met Liquor Store, New Westminster, BC
Cloudy deep blond color, with orange reflex and with generous and persistent head. The aroma is very nice, earthy, with some manure, a British promise, followed by zesty coriander, of Belgian memory. It has a good body; some malt flavor and very light cereals, but missing some more interesting character; bold hopping, not spectacular but at least delivering some pale citrusy emotion. The final is long and bitter, but also simple.
If only they could translate some of the aromatic components all along the perception angles of this beer..

thanks from Rejean for this. Pours a nice clear golden elixer with a moderate white foam. Aroma is light grain with sweet honey. Taste is refreshing, sweetness from slight honey and malts. Overall a very quaffable drink that I could drink often.

500 ml bottle from NB Liquor. Pours a clear colour with a small white head that quickly disappear. Some hops, but nothing too pronounced. Not bad at all.
