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.

mkam (46) - POLAND - APR 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours amber with a thick head. Aroma is malt, caramel with some hops, pine, fruits. In taste malt, bit of fruits. Medium bitterness and carbonation. Good amber, but nothing special.

tricksta_p (631) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2014
Aroma of malts, more malts, caramel, hops, slight hint of maple syrup. Flavour is quite malty, thankfully not that sweet, with quite some hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Nice malty brew, but I would have liked a more pronounced maple aspect.

g_georgiou (143) - CYPRUS - APR 8, 2014
Amber body with a thick white head. Malty aroma with some pine. Maple syrup popped up once the beer warmed up a bit. Sweet taste with a bitter aftertaste. The theme is autumn and they definitely got it right.

Cunningham (4019) - Halden, NORWAY - APR 4, 2014
Appearance: Hazy amber color with a fine off white head. Good lacing.
Aroma: Malty, hoppy, herbal and fruity.
Palate: Medium + body. A bit sweet and a fine bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Malty, toffee, mild fruity, marple syrup and a rich hoppy tail. Some alcohol coming up.
Overall impression: Ok tasty amber. Although a bit to sweet for me. Lovely hoppy touch.
Personal stats: Bottle from Systembolaget in Strömstad, Sweden.

Douberd (1702) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2014
355 ml bottle into a pint glass at home. ABV 6% Deep red copper colour, crystal clear body. Tall and thick off-white head, with very good retention, leaving lots of lacing around the glass as it collapses. Nice aroma of grassy hops, pine. Taste is moderate sweet, malty with a light bread character, maple syrup I guess, pine, a bit of citrus as well to break the sweetness down a bit. Bitter aftertaste with good duration. Medium thin body, soft carbonation. Nice and tasty, with high drinkability.

BLADT (208) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 29, 2014
From bottle. Clean amber in glass. Thin white head. Big, inviting nose. Caramel. Pecans. And I guess, because I am primed, some maple. Flavor balance is bang on. Good showing from the hops - grassy and a good bitter counterpart to the sweeter malts. Very flavorful for style. Finishes fruity.

Nekronos (3603) - Xalapa, MEXICO - MAR 26, 2014
Very maple alike in more than two aspects. Nice smell, fine taste and quite refreshing too was.

JanEric (959) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 26, 2014
Amber, small off white head. Fresh hops in the nose, like an apa, citrus, nice bitterneess with a hint of sweetness of the syrup? Full bodied, sweet and soft
