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.

floydslip (261) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Amber beer with a medium foamy light beige head. Hoppy nose of citrus, pine resin, and (surprisingly) vanilla. Flavor is definitely hop forward with some under ripe plum, pith, and leather buttressed by a hint of sweetness, although not enough to balance it out. I really wanted to taste the maple more. Decent, not great.

Nice ruby red hue in a tall snifter. 1 finger of white head. Caramel aroma. Dont detect the maple, has body and flavor of an Irish red.

Gription79 (2653) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is woody, pine, toasted malts, light caramel. The flavor is a little sweeter, maple, vanilla, woody, pine, a spice character in the finish. Spice like actual clove, a tingling sensation on my tongue.

Not my favorite. I think the maple makes it slightly sweeter than I would have liked. Still good.

12 oz bottle pours copper with a tan head. Huge aroma of floral hops. Taste is crisp and fresh, earthy with a nuance of maple. Strong bitter, spicy and dry finish. Really good amber ale.

앵커 브루잉 - 빅리프 메이플 어텀에일 6% ABV 여름은 순식간에 끝나고, 가을은 한꺼번에 온다. 농익은 자두의 단맛과 신맛, 두꺼운 몰티감, 약한 솔기운의 홉향 이 모든것이 한꺼번에 밀려드는 가을 시즈널. 메이플 시럽으로 약간 터치했다고 하나 시음당시에 정보없이 마셔서인지 거의 느낄 수 없었다.끝에 씁쓸한 여운을 제외하곤 켜켜히 쌓인 미각의 층이 한꺼번에 밀려들며 계절의 변화를 실감할 수 있는 좋은 시즈널 에일 https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

nuplastikk (5095) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2015
12oz bottle. I don’t know if it is old or not, but hope it is. Really bad. Disturbing cherry cough syrup tinged aroma. In now way enjoyable. Syrupy pine. Has to be old. Gross.
