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.

Nsanders (545) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2014
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.

Nice beer. Very clean. Not overly sweet and no lingering mouthfeel. Pulls a very clear amber color not hazy at all. Thin head off white color head very little lacing.

ScoWRee (390) - Perkiomen, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2014
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.

Beautiful pour, hoppy taste, decent mouthfeel & aroma. A complex & tasty amber for sure!

ChainGangGuy (4395) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 27, 2014
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.

jsnicholas (212) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - SEP 27, 2014
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

ClutchMasterson (60) - Aiea, Hawaii, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Pours a rich copper and amber clear with a half finger head. Aroma is a nice caramel and cereal with hints of maple and light vanilla. Taste is a rich malty bready flavor on the front with a light maple and toffee sweetness throughout and has a good balanced bitter finish that doesn’t linger too long. Nice medium body throughout. Overall this is a nice beer from Anchor which is a great addition to a fall line up with solid flavor and smoothness throughout.

KyotoLefty (6635) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle from Seijo Ishii. Nice hoppy nose--citrus and grass; a bit of caramel and maple syrup. Bright, glowing red, clear, with a high, fine head. Flavor is sweet caramel at first, somewhat soda-like fruitiness, then a lot of very earthy bitterness in the finish. Decent.

c_lee_burton (105) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle. The nose has a sweet maple scent. Pours a nice reddish - amber with a small khaki head. Tastes of bitter hops, caramel, and maple. Sharp on the palate at first, then a creaminess, and followed by smooth finish. Get some lingering hops on the back end.

Not sure how or why, but yet another review lost. Having to go by memory, but I remember being underwhelmed and a bit disappointed. My numbers are right though because I jotted them down.
