3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Founders last week. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderate brown color with a thin off-white head. Nice bit of spotty lacing. The nose carries faint maple and a bit of caramel sweetness. Flavor has a moderate malt presence with some faint maple and a bit of malty sweetness. Light-medium body with good carbonation. Solid, easy-drinking brew.
