Bottle, bbe 08/2015. Interesting fruit toffee aroma. Tastes first little fruity then becomes sharp bitter. Finishes with toasty notes. Interesting beer but sharp bitterness is almost overwhelming.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Weird brew. Very bitter, rather strong even though it is only 6% and didn’t notice much maple.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Orange brown with a huge sticky head. Big caramel malt aroma with hints of nuts, light resiny/earthy hop and alcohol. Flavor is malty with a bitter earthy finish. Body is medium heavy with a bubbly feel. Not bad, but was expecting something a little more sweet and maple flavored.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a pale orange color with a nice tan foamy head. Aroma reminds me of grapefruit. Taste is very hoppy. Not much else other than hops. Not what I would consider as an autumn brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16.6 ounce bottle - $4.48 at Sherlock’s in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours out a near-clear, ambery body with a medium-sized, eggshell-toned head.
Smell: A nose of pale, toasty malts with a modest amount of sweet-scented caramel, zestful, downright peppery hops, a touch of yeast and a light, incorporated maple touch that blends in the background that you forget it’s a maple-based brew.
Taste: Pale malts, plus fairly it is toasty, even a bit biscuity with a slight, ample though not overdone caramel sweetness. Quick, fleeting hint of maple. Big pop of coarse-ground black pepper on the hops with a very light underlying citrusy nature to the hops. Peppery, modestly toasty, soft finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: A fitting fall ale.

Bottle (12oz $1.50): Amber with mostly white head. Light to medium body. Slight bitterness in the end at first. But the bite receded as the glass emptied. Did not taste the Maple
