3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big beige head. Clear reddish brown body with light carbonation.
Fruity spicy dark wood aroma with earthy sugary notes. Dry-sweet
spicy perfumy roasted sugar taste with minty pine needle notes.
Mid-to-thin body. Sharpish, slightly fizzy mouthfeel. Dry,
almost acidic, wooden perfumy pine needle aftertaste with fruity
candy and spice notes. Orangey background. Weird combination of
flavours, and perhaps not entirely successful. (0.355l bottle,
from wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

Has a real bite to this, the malts are really potent with a nice nutty flavor. Hoppy with some astringent at the end.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is hoppy and malty with no detectable maple syrup. The appearance is amber with a nice head. The taste is like the aroma with maybe a touch of syrup at the end. The palate is smooth. Overall a quality beer that is very drinkable but is more like an IPA than a maple beer. This needs more maple syrup.

Bottle at home. Clear copper pour, thick rocky white head. Aroma of ripe fruits, caramel, maple syrup, some tangerine and a bit grassy. Flavor is bitter with grassy hops, thick fruity malts and well balanced with a decent body. Decent brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Perfect for the first weekend of winter. Pours a hazy amber-copper with golden highlights and a thick, rocky beige head that settles slowly and leaves some clumpy lace. Nose involves sweet candy syrup, some spicy and herbal hops, and a dash of maple. Pretty sweet, but fairly bitter to balance. Medium bodied, lower carb, a bit syrupy, somewhat grainy, slick and oily, with a lengthy caramelly and leafy bitter finish. Either it’s completely appropriately named, or there’s some serious power of suggestion involved. A very nice brew that was well-suited to a couple months ago, but has held up well as winter begins. Another enjoyable offering from Anchor.
