Bottle from Village Wine and Spirits. Nice roasty malt nose, raisins and very light prune. Pretty reddish-copper color, thick rocky head. Sharp caramel, light spicy hops, finish is a bit harsh but not unpleasant. Medium body. Rich flavors, but I don’t really get the maple. This has the signature Anchor flavor profile.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It smells balanced. Nice hoppy aromas with ample malt backing it up.
Taste wise, it’s 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 it’s very easy to drink.
