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.

Ascelja (956) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 3, 2016
Bottle 0.355l. Lightly hazy amber body, medium yellowish head. Aroma of honey, cherries, berries, fruit stones, caramel, peaches and probably maple syrup. Taste is heavy bitter and very sweet. Caramel, toasted malts, berries, leaves, cherries. Medium to full body, high carbonation, slicky texture, long bitter aftertaste.
Great! Good choice for early autumn afternoon.

Bontus (758) - Flanders, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2016
Bottle from Dranken Geers. Pours dark amber, brown with a dense beige head. I like it and the bottle art too. Nose of cara malts and candy. Aroma is caramel and toast, lots of retronasal action. Taste is a roasted bitterness, more than I would expect from its color. Lively palate, finish is dry bitter. Hops contribute but are not in the foreground. Medium heavy body. Fits the season!

TheKernOwl (194) - 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.

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!
