Bottle. Pours orange with red hues and white head. Aroma is very spruce, earthy, malt forward, bready. Taste is very earthy, bitter backbone but yet has a slight sweetness to balance it out. A very unique brew. Okay.

Bottle from Village Wine and Spirits. Nice roasty malt nose, raisins and very light prune. Pretty reddish-copper color, thick rocky head. Sharp caramel, light spicy hops, finish is a bit harsh but not unpleasant. Medium body. Rich flavors, but I donít really get the maple. This has the signature Anchor flavor profile.

Single bottle. As I get older, I an starting to enjoy malty beers. This is a beautiful, deep amber beer with a creamy, tan head. Caramel on the nose and sweet, malty flavors with a tiny hint of maple syrup. A decent beer. Very balanced. Easy to drink. Looking forward as always to fall.

It smells balanced. Nice hoppy aromas with ample malt backing it up.
Taste wise, itís not as balanced as the smell as the bitter hops are very assertive. I do have to say the malt is well done and I do get hints of maple.
A very pleasurable mouthfeel.
This is a solid brew for the autumn season and itís very easy to drink.
