Beer Review - Picaroons Traditional Ales Simeon Jones Amber Ale

This is my brother-in-laws favorite beer. Simeon Jones Amber Ale coming in at 4.5% ABV. This beer is an homage to Simeon Jones, a brewer and mayor of Saint John whose beer became well known throughout the Maritimes in the 1800's. The beer is copper color with a slight head. There is a malty aroma with a little yeast perhaps. It is light in carbonation and in mouth feel. It has a malty and bread flavour with minimal aftertaste and a very slight dryness, I enjoyed this beer, I could see this as a good warm weather beer. Enjoy responsibly.
