COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A quaffable, well-balanced red ale with character. Its malty complexity and coppery color come from a combination of two caramel malts, pale malt, and a hint of maple syrup.

Tmoney99 (10400) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle. Poured a clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting and had excellent lacing. Good sweet malt aroma. Medium to abundant body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate balanced smooth sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good brew.

Bottle sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Pine and citrus with a large caramel and maple dose. Pretty good, but nothing I would seek out again.

Anchor BigLeaf Maple Autumn Red has a lot to like, but maybe not for the reasons you would expect. The decent tan head sitting atop a reddish-brown pour reveals a fantastic aroma of sweet fruitiness (probably from the Citra hops.) The initial taste is a hop bomb that masks the subtle maple flavors you might be expecting. There is some sweetness mixed with malt on the swallow but the maple flavors never completely shine through. BigLeaf Maple is a decent beer experience, but expect more in common with an IPA than an amber ale.

12 oz bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, caramel, mild hops, moderate bitterness, more character than the standard amber.

jamestulloch (1224) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 30, 2013
Bottle from Drinkmonger. Bright orange body with a thick off-white head. Light carbonation. Excellent lacing. Aroma of honey, lemon cake, stewed tea and wood. Well balanced flavour - sharp lime, caramel, maple syrup and pine. Gorgeous, subtle and earthy. Medium body with a very oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. What a fantastic beer.

Keg. Slightly hazy red amber with a thinnish white fuzz. Red berry nose with raspberries, blackcurrants and honey. Taste is like an alcoholic Ribena. There's a slight banana in the finish, but mostly astringent and bitter berries -rasp, black, Logan... A decent drink with an interesting flavour. Very fresh!

SamP01 (538) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Pours a dark amber with a medium fluffy off white head, good lacing and head retention. Aroma is citrus earthy hops and fruity upfront with some caramel malt, yeast and sweet maple notes. Taste starts off with citrus earthy hops bitterness, slowly mellows out with a sweet caramel malt and maple flavor on the ending. Palate is a medium body, smooth with good carbonation, mild sticky mouth feel.. The finish is a combination of earthy pine hops and sweet malt and maple flavor on the end for balance, ending has a lingering hops and maple flavor. Overall a tasty fall treat and enjoyable brew.

Bottle to pint. Looks good for the style; a transparent light copper with foamy off-white head. Smells sweet and malty with notes of maple syrup. Tastes like it smells, only more robust. Solid on the palate. Enjoyable, although I wouldn’t drink it all day long.

tectactoe (1441) - Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2013 Bottle: clear, cascading amber to deep copper color with a pillowy, beige head; chunky, thick, & long-lasting. Aroma is full of some breezy caramel malt, some mildly citric hops, faint orange, & a very tiny hint of maple syrup sweetness. Taste is full of a toasted, slightly caramel-like malt body with earthy & dirty hops on top. Light citrus character, maybe orange or grapefruit, with a touch of pine & more malt sweetness in the finish. Maple flavor is very mild, nearly nonexistent for the first half of the glass - only slightly noticeable with warmth. Quaffable, decent, maybe just a little boring.

Bottle pours out a dark amber topped with a long lasting sand head. Aroma is pine sweetness toast and citrus. Taste is as the aroma with caramel malts maple syrup and a nice mix of hops.
