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.

Pours a nice dark amber slight head. To bitter not hoppy didn’t notice any maple flavor wouldn’t get it again.

Amber Ales are such a broad, common zone and everyone has their own preference. I definitely lean toward the hoppy space, yet I don’t like an Amber that could pass as an IPA if tasted with a blindfold. BigLeaf Maple seems like an Amber Ale tailor made for my palate. There’s biscuit-like malts, caramel, and a touch of syrup. The hops are lovely, too. They’re citrusy, bitter, and herbal. Scales are tipped toward hops, but the balance is still solid. Also, I can’t resist beers that make use of local flavors.

foyle (359) - Wyoming, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Appearance: pours a thick off white head that drops slowly with plenty of lacing. Cloudy amber color with plenty of streaming carbonation. Aroma: citrus hops completely dominate, some malt in the background. Mouthfeel: medium bodied and resinous with a dry, somewhat astringent finish. Flavor: hops are also dominate in the flavor with malt more apparent than the aroma, but still a background element. I do not pick up the maple flavors at all. Overall: well done American style Amber/Red ale, but no necessarily my personal preference.

floydslip (292) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Amber beer with a medium foamy light beige head. Hoppy nose of citrus, pine resin, and (surprisingly) vanilla. Flavor is definitely hop forward with some under ripe plum, pith, and leather buttressed by a hint of sweetness, although not enough to balance it out. I really wanted to taste the maple more. Decent, not great.

Nice ruby red hue in a tall snifter. 1 finger of white head. Caramel aroma. Dont detect the maple, has body and flavor of an Irish red.

Gription79 (2749) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is woody, pine, toasted malts, light caramel. The flavor is a little sweeter, maple, vanilla, woody, pine, a spice character in the finish. Spice like actual clove, a tingling sensation on my tongue.

Not my favorite. I think the maple makes it slightly sweeter than I would have liked. Still good.

12 oz bottle pours copper with a tan head. Huge aroma of floral hops. Taste is crisp and fresh, earthy with a nuance of maple. Strong bitter, spicy and dry finish. Really good amber ale.

앵커 브루잉 - 빅리프 메이플 어텀에일 6% ABV 여름은 순식간에 끝나고, 가을은 한꺼번에 온다. 농익은 자두의 단맛과 신맛, 두꺼운 몰티감, 약한 솔기운의 홉향 이 모든것이 한꺼번에 밀려드는 가을 시즈널. 메이플 시럽으로 약간 터치했다고 하나 시음당시에 정보없이 마셔서인지 거의 느낄 수 없었다.끝에 씁쓸한 여운을 제외하곤 켜켜히 쌓인 미각의 층이 한꺼번에 밀려들며 계절의 변화를 실감할 수 있는 좋은 시즈널 에일 https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

12oz bottle. I don’t know if it is old or not, but hope it is. Really bad. Disturbing cherry cough syrup tinged aroma. In now way enjoyable. Syrupy pine. Has to be old. Gross.
