Aroma has some woody notes in the background and lots of sweet malt. Smooth texture. Long lasting flavour full of warming malt. Full bodied. Great taste.

sm89walt (1896) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2008
Bottle. A clear amber beer in appearance with an ample-sized, bubbly white head. The delicate hint of maple can be detected at times, moreso in the aroma. Other aromas include a light caramel note and a burnt malt undertone. In the flavour department, Maplemoon offers a sweet and malty character with a light hay-like bitterness on a medium body with an even mouthfeel.

omhper (22614) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2008
Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Clear amber, rich creamy head. Predominantly caramelly nose with some hay, maple syrup and paper. Light to medium bodied with dense, rounded mouthfeel. The hay-like hops turns to salty bitterness in the finish. A mid-intensity, rather streamlined beer with just a slight note of maple syrup.

HogcliffeLenny (162) - Christchurch, Dorset, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2008
Bottle 500ml. from Waitrose, Christchurch. Pours amber with off white head. Aroma has malty overtone. However, when it comes to taste, maple syrup is very prominent. A bit too sweet and syrupy for me. More of a novelty beer than a session beer.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 9, 2008
Bottle. Caramel and malt in the aroma. Amber appearance. Bitter sweet flavour. Maple, malt. Smooth and bitter all in one. Weird.

Beth101 (531) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2008
Caramel in colour, very very thin head . Sweet smell with a hint of coffee. Sweet smooth and a taste of maple syrup.

bobinlondon (1280) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2008
Bottle from Morrisons. Pours amber with off-white head. Could taste maple along with plenty of malt and hops. Nice for a pasteurised beer.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2009 Slightly metallic nose. Pours rich amber with a firm, tan head. Flavour is refreshing, with a reasonable hoppy bitterness/malty sweetness balance. Don’t get any maple at all. More metallic notes in the finish unfortunately, but ok over all.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2008
Bottled. An amber coloured beer with a short lived off-white head. An earthy English best bitter with some sweet syrupy notes in the aroma. Don’t get Cascade or maple in the taste. Instead some nettly hop. Not bad, especially for a pasteurized bottle from a regional.

Bottle, Morrisons, West Kirby. Guess what ? its maple syrup coloured, and its flat and unfinishable. Sweetish bildge. Not a pleasant experience. Down the sink with ya !
