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.

Clear amber with a nice thick frothy head. Aroma pine and spruce and peat. Strong hop character with some caramel sweetness and earthy undertones. Light and oily. Not bad but not my style.

inbirraveritas (1438) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 5, 2015
Bottled, 355 ml. Shows an opal amber red with a lasting creamy off-white head on its top. Citrussy-malty nose. Aroma brings a mild sweet caramel, florals and citrusses underpainted gently by maple. Lingering, gently warming, earthy-citrussy finish. Very nice.

Svesse (7600) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2015
(Bottle) Reddish amber colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of caramel, red fruit, apricots, peaches, toast and a touch of maple syrup. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, apricots, peaches, orange peel, a touch of maple syrup and a balanced citric bitterness. Medium body, with balanced sweetness. Tasty and well balanced, with an interesting maple syrup touch. Nice one.

willisread (1871) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 3, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Copper with a small off-white head that lingers. Grassy, woody hop aromas on the nose with some mildly sweet malt noticeable. Taste is well-balanced with a hint of maple sweetness along with more grassy hops. Finish is lightly bitter with some toasted pecan notes.

Comparing to maple mistress. Falls short of that, but not bad. Some maple taste. Ashy aftertaste.

BiddleBrau (1087) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Amber, slightly cloudy, nice off white dense head. Minimal nose. Hoppy, dry, mild malt profile. This looks like a great beer but I was expecting a bit more malt here.

pityu (483) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 27, 2015
Bottle - Clear, deep reddish colour, creamy beige head with pretty good durablity. Sweet malty and nutty nose, nice resinous hop aromas with some citrus. Taste is too sweet for me, but it has some kind of balance. Fine caramel, toasted nuts, red berries and honey taste. Medium body, low carbonation, slightly dry finish with some smooth hoppy notes. Texture is too sticky for me. Not a usual amber ale, but its definetly worth trying.
