SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2010
Mousse blanche cassée persistante sur liquide ambré. Présence de belles dentelles. Au nez, les arômes de caramel et de noix laissent une place à de franches notes de pamplemousse. Au goût, l’attaque est aussi plein de malt grillé suivi d’une amertume qui s’étire moyennement mais efficacement sur la langue. Densité moyenne du liquide et texture crémeuse.

This is my favorite beer from Picaroons, nice first and after bitter taste, amber coloured and perfect carbonation for me (medium to low).

[2808-20100316] 500mL bottle. Sweet cardboard haystack aroma has a strange strong hint of mango. Slightly hazy, amber brown body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Fruity malt grain flavour is sweet overall with an odd mango finish. Medium body has an odd bitterness. Weird.
(From NB Liquor, Fredericton, NB)

Spab (3842) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2009
500 ml bottle from Alcool NB Liquor in Fredericton. Pours a slightly murky brown with moderate off-white head. Caramel and nuttiness in nose with mild hoppiness. Strong caramel malty flavour with citrus hops becoming more prominent as the beer warms. Lasting moderate bitter finish. Hadn’t heard of this brewery so didn’t know what to expect - was pleasantly surprised with this one.

Berley31 (230) - New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 25, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2009 A: Poured with a very large, off-white head that hung around at a good two-finger size for almost the entire consumption of the 500 ml bottle. Head is clumpy, and yields nice lacing on the sides of the glass. Body is hazy, and a nice, dark-amber color. S: Consistent aroma of some light, roasted malt, and strong bitterness. Maybe some light fruit in there as well, but nothing too distinctive. T: Very nice taste of sweetness at the beginning, and finishing with a moderately-bitter flavor that is intermediate-lasting. Nothing too overpowering, but far from boring as well. Quite a nice tasting bitter. M: Medium-to-full bodied and creamy texture. Average carbonation. D: An excellent bitter, and one of Picaroons better entries. Easy to drink, but more than enough in the flavor and mouthfeel department to be extremely enjoyable... and easily the best-looking Picaroons to date.

Lubiere (13905) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2008
A hazy clear brown ale with a thin creamy off white head. In aroma, pleasant butterscotch, cherry wood, vinous, rosewater and caramel, In mouth, a nutty malt, with alcohol, dry hops, wooden notes and rosewater. Medium bodied. Early 2007.

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 13, 2008
Bouteille de 500 ml. La bière est de couleur orange brulé avec une mousse démesurée. Au nez on respire des arômes de caramel brulé, de sapin et de céréales. En bouche le corps est mince-moyen avec une effervescence élevée. On goûte des saveurs de sapin, de caramel et de houblon sec, tranchant et amère.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2008 Bottle. Clear amber with decent white head. Clean caramel malt soon becomes obscured by acetone aromas. Mmmmm diacetyl on top of caramel malt. Doh! Carbonation is medium, with decent mouthfeel. Some nutty flavors but flawed, with acridity and acetone in finish. Am thinking we got a skunked bottle, purchased @ Sackville, NB govt store. Sampled again with only slightly higher ratings and averaged together...

2.7
Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 31, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2010 Bottle. Smoky, sweet caramel, nutty malt aroma. Deep copper in colour, decent off white head. Smoky, nutty flavour. Tangy bitter finish. Little thin in texture but a good English style bitter.

500ml bottle-pours a big foamy to shaving cream light tan head and hazy amber color. Aroma is sweet medium malt, some spicy fruit. Taste is more like a bitter. Also some issues, so I’ll adjust up slightly. Mild carbonation. Thanks Ed Notch for sharing.
