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.

Nose is woody and lightly spiced. If there's any maple here, it's in the aroma, and its almost indistinguishable. Luckily, it's also a solid brew. The taste is white pepper, oak bark, a touch of cinnamon, clove, and an aggressive piney dryness. This is much hoppier than its countenance lets on. The bittering hops are assertive and absolutely do not quit. There's a ghost of a sweetness on the very end hiding under the hop storm that could be the maple, but could well be just caramel malts. The finish is just drier than Bakersfield. I'd drink it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gehbe (223) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - AUG 7, 2016
Clear deep amber with a medium offwhite head. Nose of resin, fruit, toast. Fairly light sweetness and bitterness, even lilghter sourness. Wonderful balance, very drinkable.

TheKernOwl (188) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2016
(Orange and lemon?) hops on nose; all about the sweetness and the caramel malt; not badly balanced though; thicker and better consistency – but perhaps little too sweet compared to – the Meantime Yakima Red I had earlier today.

Bijl (223) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2016
Koperkleurig herfst bier met een licht bruin/creme kleurige schuimkraag. Aromas van karamel, citrus en grapefruit vanuit de hops, grassig een aarde. Na opwarming ook een moutig aroma. De smaak is die van mouten en broodachtig, iets floraals, pijnboom/hars en een tikje kruidige prikkeling. Deze Amber Ale is verrassend gehopt.... Heeft bijna iets weg van een IPA. Een behoorlijke nabitter en redelijk droog. Weinig koolzuur, medium body en redelijk zacht mondgevoel. De Maple siroop kan ik niet thuisbrengen... is voor mij ook geen bekende smaak. Ik vind het een prima Bier!

RobBestwick (831) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 16, 2016
Bottle. Sweet citrus and caramel aroma. Pours amber in colour with a large and frothy off-white head. Flavours of toffee, caramel with a hint of maple nicely balanced with some citrus bitterness. Medium bodied with a long bitter finish. Very good.

chucklemation (1424) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2016
Pours a dark amber with a foamy, long-lasting white head. Aroma is pine hops, resin, and caramel malts. Flavor is pretty much the same. I don’t get any maple. The beer has a light bitterness. Much hoppier than I expected, and I am pleasantly surprised by this.

Fules (786) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - APR 3, 2016
Hatalmas, nagyon tartós, nagyon tömör, bézs színű habja van. Színe borostyán, de kicsit sötétebb, mint az IPA. Illata is hasonló, de kevésbé intenzív és van némi édeskés felhangja. Íze ipás alapon nyugszik, kesernyés, de nincs gyanta, viszont citrusos aromák is felfedezhetőek. Végig érezni az édeskés juharszirupot, de nem tolakodóan. Utóízében kissé háttérbe szorul a komló és előtérbe kerül a szirup, de még mindíg jól kiegyensúlyozott. Nagyon finom, testes, de nem nehéz sör.

Quite impressed with this amber. Very hoppy and somewhat sweet pours reddish brown with a thick tan head. Had from a bottle
