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.

Terrible beer. Smell is pleasant enough – maple and and hay, and it looks well enough, but the taste is unbearably bitter. So much so that you lose your sense of smell. A classic example of an over-hopped, over-hyped american beer.

mt_hall (138) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2015
Bottled. Pours a slightly hazy red-amber with a decent foamy, light brown head. The maple syrup aroma is clear, but there are piney hops and tropical fruit too. The initial flavours are sweet, with maple syrup and tropical fruit again. The dry finish prevents it from being cloying and it hides the relatively high ABV well. Very good.

mbgrayson (576) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - JAN 30, 2015
Pours a nice clear amber, with long lasting tan head. Aroma of hops, with notes of malt. Taste is hoppier than I expected. Not my favorite Amber. Thumbs sideways.

Pours redish with pronounced head. Smell is very pleasant. Hoppy with a syrupy note. Taste is sweet at first with a hoppy finish. Excellent balance. A very nice beer!
