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.

Really pretty beer - great color with a thick head. Nice malty nose, surprisingly with next to no discernible maple scent. Taste was rich and malty, although I didn't detect any of the promised maple - which in my book is a good thing... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maddog (390) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2014
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.

Bill Becker (248) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - AUG 16, 2014
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.
