Muggus69 (2100) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 5, 2009
500ml Deep gold body, small ring of white foam Odd aroma; slight toffeee, faint leafiness, citrus hops. Medium-lean body, reasonably low carbonation. Ripe stonefruit hop character combines with sweet maltiness and faint leaf-like character. Not really tasting the maple, not alot to it overall.

Bottle, bought @ Bargain Beers, Sheffield.
Pours clear amber with a small, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has sweet caramel, somemaple syrup and a bit of flowery hops. Soft carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, some good maple syrup character and light herbal touch. Fine bitterness in the finish. Sweet, but quite drinkable.

joe19612 (2594) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2009
Bottle Pours a deep amber colour with off white head that soon dispappears. Aroma has plenty of malt, when it comes to taste, the maple is very prominent. Not a bad beer, not sure if it a session beer.

KnutAlbert (6705) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 15, 2009
Bottle in Manchester. Well balanced beer, and the added maple syrup gives a nice twist. Feels like some mint and spices, too. Some bitterness in the finish, long lingering bittersweet tail.

scotty (1148) - SCOTLAND - MAR 6, 2009
Bottle from Morrisons, nice clear golden colour, thinnish head. On the palate & nose this is nowt but an average easy drinking beer. There’s no discernible maple character (for me anyway!) a bit disappointing!

Bullit (4428) - Burgos, SPAIN - FEB 28, 2009

bembelembe (218) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 16, 2009
Quite nice smooth bitter. Very well balanced between bitter and sweet, hop and spice components. Herbal and especially wood notes. Some fruits also detected beside spices and traces of tobacco. Caramel-fruity smell. Creamy texture. Medium-lively carbonation. Very drinkable.
