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.

fidelis83 (2267) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Old copper pour with a 3 finger, fluffy beige head. Aroma of caramel, a little nutty toffee, a hint of sweet woodiness, toast and a little grassy and planty hops. Flavor is toasty and nutty up front, then some caramel, earthy, sort of spicy wood notes that remind me more of birch beer than maple syrup, grassy, spicy and fruity floral hops, light mineral notes and a bit of tannin-ish bite to the finish. Light to medium body, oily entry, immediately knocked out by an off dry feel that leads up to a dry finish that straddles the line between astringent and pleasantly crisp. A medium strength, blanketing and lively carbonation punctuates the overall dryness. Good stuff overall, I was surprised by the dry, woody, husky grain feel of a beer with Maple and Malt mentioned so many times on the label. Good stuff overall, not great, but I feel like I might warm up to it a bit by the time I am done with the six pack.

olio (8468) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2016
355 ml bottle @ Timo A. BBE 07/2017.
Pours clear mahogany color with a small head. Pine and resin on the aroma, syrupy, caramel malts and some orange. Flavor is caramel malts and orange, bitter notes, subtle syrup sweetness, some cardboard notes on the background, quite faint though. Decent, though not my favorite style.

Pours a clear amber beer with a small beige head. Smells of hops, pine, malts, red fruit. Tastes bitter. Leaves a hoppy palate with a hint of malt sweetness. Great beer!

Renobob (1462) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 31, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 355ml. Couleur ambrée orangée, nez quasiment absent. Palais malté, légèrement fruité. Notes de caramel en finale. Légère et agréable mais manque de corps.

JorisPPattyn (8913) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 20, 2015
Medium to good yellowish cream head over faintly veiled amber beer. Aromatic, grapey hops, caramel, bit of oxydation. Generally smelling sweet. Bitter, leafy and metallic. Preciously little sweetness in the mouth, although some malt shines through. Resin. Slick, resiny-oily feel. Metallic tang also contributes to the texture. Well carbonated if nowhere fizzy. Certainly not bad, I’m just a bit put off by the way the nose stands perpendicular on the taste.

Calisky (2162) - ALSACE, FRANCE - DEC 18, 2015
Couleur ambrée, belle mousse. Bon nez houblonné fruité et caramel. Arome houblonné fruité (note de peche), floral, citronné, fleur de reglisse, herbeux, note douce sirop erable. Palais bien amere, houblon, boisé reglisse et herbeux. Pas trop douce sur le sirop d’érable, mais bien subtile et houblonée, un peu dans un style ipa. Une ambrée nickel, du Anchor typique et bon.

Allegedly there is maple syrup flavor in this beer. Prepare your taste buds for something more like a red IPA. Pretty hoppy, minimal watery malt flavor, and a tablespoon of maple syrup for the entire kettle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
