pours a pale yellow with thin, quickly dissipating head. light carbonation. aromas of flowers and bread. light mouthfeel with lots of yeast and mild hops. finishes with some bitterness. excellent summer thirst-quencher. very similar to their blonde ale with a bit more flowery-hop taste.

Pours a clear golden color like the typical lagers. Head disapears quikly. Aroma is mostly bread, cereal and a little floral. Medium carbonation an it has some sort of creamy feel to it. Kind of feels like a typical lager but it is a bit better.

Easily the best thing out of Picaroons in the last few years. It has the signature Picaroons taste but the heather makes it!

500 ml bottle from NB Liquor. Pours a nice golden-blonde colour with medium white head. Aroma is herbal, floral. As for the taste, that’s where it’s getting problematic. To me, it tasted like firewood or soap, or a combination of both. Didn’t like it at all. Skip this one.

Bottle, shared with my wife. This is an interesting excersise in rating for me. Like some other raters here, I incorrectly assumed that this would be a spin on a Scottish ale or at least a cool traditional style ale. In the end, it is a mild, clean, lightly floral pale ale that was quite enjoyable. I’m going to rate it as such, since it isn’t the beers fault that I had incorrect preconceptions of what it would be. But I will say : where is the heather? You would never guess this was brewed with heather.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle from ABNL. Pours a lightly cloudy gold with thin white cap. Aroma is definite heather on tap of indistinguishable blonde ale. Taste likewise. Body on the thin side. The heather is interesting, but the overall result is disappointing.

Too lose to a lager for my liking. I was ecpecting something a little heavier for a scottish brew

500ml bottle. With a name like "Plaid to the Bone" I was expecting a Scotch ale or Wee Heavy. Should have checked the ABV, because this most definately was not a Scottish ale. This was a golden or blonde ale with some heather added. A little herbal, with some strong floral and perfumy qualities, slightly sour/sweet. Overall, a big disappointment in another very light special edition from Picaroons, but that was partially my fault for judging a beer by its name.
