Honey and flower aroma. Flavour is sweet nectar with some bitterness. A bit plain but nothing wrong with it really apart from a bit thin

Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.

Delicious red to fit the season. Very malty aroma with caramel and biscuit. Some bitterness from the hops but not that hoppy. Traditional red with a little spice from the maple.

Pours a dark coppery color, clear, topped with a decently sized beige colored head. Mild malty aroma with prominent caramel notes and some very mild nutty aroma. Taste is sweet, caramel notes and very little bitterness. Some spices in the finish. Very gentle but very tasty.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Seen the somehow sweetish aroma, I was expecting a sweet red-brown brew. But Anchor knows to surprise you. The character is dominated by the hops, dry and pure. The sweetnes builds the side note, well detectable but devoted to the hops. Some tannine hints rounds it up. I like this.
This brew surprises me, it’s brewed with maple syrup, in deed. But the maple sugars are well transformed, the overall character is bitter dry and the maple still gives some extra taste notes. Well done!

Pour on tap at Beer House, dark reddish brown pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, doughy bread, some biscuit, toffee, hints of slight maple but pretty hidden, touch of spice. Taste was a mix of biscuit, caramel, toffee, some maple, touch of vanilla, finishing slightly sweet, slightly spicy.
