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.

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.

prawlie (1238) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2015
Bottle. Clear amber with a big foamy head. Lovely caramel and perfume aroma. Fruity, tropical juice and a touch syrupy. Hint of passion fruit. Pleasant, clean beer but a strong bitter finish. A nice drop.

beeebon (254) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2015
Pours a coppery amber colour with small but lasting tan head, looks good. Aroma is caramel malt, slightly earthy and some fruit like stewed apples. Taste is initially rather sweet but quickly balanced well with a dry bitterness. A little thin but not overly watery. Overall a nice beer which I would be happy to bring more of!

Tognetta (197) - Campinas, BRAZIL - APR 6, 2015
Ambar escura, espuma cremosa de média duração. Aroma intenso adocicado (caramelo), amadeirado. Paladar inicia doce mas logo migra para o amargor médio. Corpo médio, carbonação leve. Aftertaste bem amadeirado, mantendo o amargor. Bem gostosa e complexa.

Nice red ale with the normal malty aroma and taste. But this one also has a fresh fruity like hint to it what makes this one just a bit more refreshing. Really nice.
