Bendrixian (988) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2013
Clear brew with a red/amber colour. Smoked maple aroma , caramel mixed with a weird/unpleasant celery note. On the palate it is medium bodied, creamy and has a maple flavour and some light malt flavour and finishes fairly dry. interesting, easy drinking, but that celery note is really off-putting.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Hazy amber color, almost no head. It has a nice aroma of malple syrup and caramel coated nuts. Lean body, dry mouthfeel, caramel flavor with a nutty edge, but also light sourness.
Too much fermentation left no sugar and body to talk about.

reebtogi (3833) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 29, 2011
500ml bottle pours amber in color with a decent off-white head that settles and leaves some traces of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel and maple. Taste is light caramel and maple sweetness and a mild hop bitterness. Medium body and light carbonation. A decent enough amber, but nothing special here.

Lagerboy (1070) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2012
Unclear maple copper, foamy off white head fades quickly. Burnt brown sugar and maple malt aroma. Sweet maple taste, thin caramel malts. Low hopped, average carbonation. Bitter sour finish. Not great. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

patricks110 (1582) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 24, 2011
This one pours a dark amber with a thick two finger head of light tan. Some nice lacing forms on the glass. the nose is sweet with a light maple presence and mild caramel malt. Mostly sweet nose overall with no hops noticed. The taste is mostly sweet with a nice caramel maltiness and maple syrup taste. Medium body with some light carbonation. Nothing special about this brew, its just very average.

Bottle @ Miss January / AA Meeting Afterparty Tasting, March 2012. Pours hazy amber with a small creamy head. Nose is extremely sweet. Maple syrup, caramel and sugar. Flavor likewise. Odd..

swiseman (409) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013
strong aromas of maple - maybe slightly artificial? Overly sweet - tastes like maple cookies and definite artificial maple flavouring. finishes with similar flavour. Sweetness might make for a dessert beer, but off-maple flavour is too prevalent. yuck.

fonefan (33333) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 12, 2012

Bottle 500ml.

Clear medium to dark orange amber colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to beige head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, sweet malt, moderate to heavy maple syrup. Flavour is light heavy sweet and light moderate bitter with a long duration, maple, burnt syrup bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20120324]

[bottle at DwEEBs meeting] Celery and real maple syrup aroma with some toasted malt detectable behind the maple flavour. Clear, dark amber under wisps and a ring of fine bubbles. Nice, real maple syrup flavour together with some toasty malt and notes of bread crust, celery, and watermelon malt. Medium body, medium carbonation, slightly bitter finish.
