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.

Bottle from cellar served at 56F. Pours a rich copper-gold color with a thick off-white head. Head dissipates fairly quickly, but there’s very significant lacing. Aroma is full of hops on the initial smell, there’s caramel, bread, toffee underneath. Taking a drink initially puts a big burst of hop notes throughout your nose and mouth, resiny, piny and a bit of citrus (dried orange peel). There’s also a sweetness in the malt, caramel. I was expecting a bit more malt and I don’t really get any of the maple syrup that is supposed to be in there, but it’s a nice beer.

Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 15A, adapted). Bottle 35.5 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: hop aroma of a floral/pine character almost balanced with caramel notes and a very faint maple syrup touch. APPEARANCE: reddish amber color and slightly hazy. medium ivory head with average retention. TASTE: moderate hop flavour with a floral and pine character, followed by a faint caramel note and a slight sweetness from maple syrup and not from malt. moderate bitterness with an almost dry finish with hints of maple syrup. PALATE: medium-light body with moderate carbonation. OVERALL: a red ale with balance more towards the hops that masks the caramel notes and with a very faint touch of maple syrup.

0,355 l bottle from REWE Budnik & Homberg, best before 8/2016. Clear, reddish amber with a medium large, foamy, almost stable, tan head. Pleasant, resiny-fruity aroma of maple syrup, mango, pine and orange. Sweetish-resiny taste of maple syrup, mango, pine, caramel and nuts. Short, rather bitter and dry finish. Medium body, creamy to oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice red ale with a resiny taste and a crisp, hoppy finish. Quite quaffable. By the way, I love the bottles and labels from Anchor.

Caramel sweet aroma. Ruby red in glass. Up front biscuit malt and hops. Following through is the distinctive sweet taste of maple. Medium length dry crisp bittersweet finish. Very nice!

laiti (7263) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2015
35,5 cl bottle @ pre-Sankt Hans Tasting, Ulfborg, BBE 08/2016
Aroma has sweet fruity tones, toffee and some caramel. Also sticky malt. Flavour has sweet malt, some maple syrup, toffee, caramel and . Finishes with some grassy-menthol hops that do not quite fit in here. Drinkability is not that great, perhaps due to the stickiness & hops.

corkyrory66 (861) - BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2015
Une ambrée d’automne, comme les feuilles de l’érable en automne, qualifiée d’ailleurs par son brasseur de « autumn red ». Couleur ambre profond à roux moyen. Clarté nette. Bulles fines partout assez vives. Mousse beige moyen, avec texture bob (blanc d’œuf battu) en haut, gros cratères superbes. Arômes de cèdre, pointe de cannelle, bois de santal, agrumes, malt grillé, tabac blond. 1ère bouche très souple, au très bel ensemble malt/épice/herbes/houblon. Arrière-bouche bien typée, à la jolie amertume, longue. 2ème soyeuse, avec un grand ensemble vif et épicé. Arrière-bouche maltée, équilibrée, sirop de sapin. 3ème au très bel ensemble épicé, malté. Arrière-bouche complexe, longue, prégnante. La longueur laisse passer l’érable un peu trop en avant, et pourtant le nez est doux et superbe. Jambes marquées. Levure douce, fine. Alcool bien, il travaille largement les saveurs. Finale revient à un équilibre très joli. CONCLUSION : une très bonne bière, avec énormément d’idées, de très belles saveurs. Je mettrai pourtant en avant les superbes nez de cette bière, et sa présentation visuelle.
