3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home from cotteridge wines. Nice bright amber / red coloured pour with a lasting fairly loose off white head. Aroma is semi-sweet, candied pine hop, light touch of orange, marmelade and toast. Flavour is toast, nuts, pine, twigs. Semi-harsh earthy pine hop bitterness. I don’t get much mapel flavour, some unrefined sugars. Palate is crisp, semi-sweet. Well integrated. Good beer.

From bottle. Nice moderate copper pour with some nice white head. Sweetness in the nose with the maple and malt. Taste is not as sweet as I had expected and the maple gets lost after the initial taste. Hoppier than expected, which is not a bad thing. Solid autumn beer, but didn’t quite meet my lofty expectations.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
I poured this into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice red to brown color with a nice one finger white foamy head that lasts for a good minute and leaves some nice adequate somewhat clingy lacing.
The smell was basically caramel malts with a decent roastiness running about it and does eventually add a decent maple aroma to come out and make it feel like Autumn.
The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors and bundled it up into a nicely packed flavoring. The only thing I got in the aftertaste was a somewhat caramel flavoring there and there was a quick dry finish.
On the palate, it sat about a medium on the body with a decent sessionable aspect to it, but still has a decent carbonation that is good for the style and for me.
Overall, I say this was a nice American Amber/Red ale that one can have in Autumn. I’ll make sure to have this again next Autumn.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Served in snifter, purs deep orange, perfectly amber and slightly hazy with large, creamy head. Seems a little bit overcarbonated. Aroma is mixed beetween hops, some honey (maybe mapple syrup?) and caramel malts with the former most intensive, mainly citrus and floral. Overall, its very encouraging. Taste is suprising, I expected more of sweetness, but its dominantly bitter with long finish and herbal aftertaste. I dont really sense any mapple, only some maltiness and caramel, but its quickly overwhelmed by hoppiness. Its perfectly carbonated. Its a good choice for an amber ale, but you wouldnt definitely enjoy more sweetness and less hops.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sötét sárga tiszta, pezsgő, szénsavas kevés fehér habbal.
Szőlős, muskotályos kellemes illat társul enyhe és szúrós mérges karakterrel karamell ágyon. Meglepően száraz közepesen keserű, alkoholos friss. tartós komlós utóízzel. Érdekes megközelítése a stílusnak. Tetszik.

Első amerikai sör, amit hozott nekem egy ismerősöm. A vörös sört nemigazán ismertem eddig, de pozitív élmény volt mindenképpen, És elég igényes a címkéje, üvege is.
