3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The maple wasnt as blatant as one would expect from these ’beers with a twist of whatever’ as it blends in with the malts quite well.
Quite heavy at 4.8% with plenty of bitterness in the aftertaste. Not a big hit aroma that you’d usually expect from Cascade hops.

50 cl bottle.
Originally rated on 20100713.
Pours copper color with a medium head. Aroma of pine, some hops, sweet fruits and caramel malts. Flavor of nuts, caramel malts, fruits and hay. A bit too nutty for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml Bottle from Morrisons (£1.59):
Sweet, biscuit malts and sugar, it is also very bitter on the nose. There is a definite fruit base with cherries and some strongish caramel.
Caramel amber with a clear body and a thumb sized, dome shaped, foamy white head that reduces in size only slightly.
Caramel & biscuit malts with a strong bitter undercurrent and lots of darker fruits. There is some some cherries and sugar with a touch of hops and maple too. Sweet and bitter finish.
Smooth, medium and moderate carbonation. Goes down well and seems stronger than it is.Quite creamy feeling.
Sweet and seemed stronger than the 4.8% abv. on the label. I enjoyed this one more than I thought I would with the dark fruits and sugar working well with the bitterness. It was a pleasant tipple.

Nov 2012 - mild malty, a bit sweet. Not much to it, boring, ordinary, bit like Hobgoblin. Wouldn’t have again.

I like maple syrup so as it isn’t overpowering I will always buy this occasionally. Easily available due to it being a local brewery

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper coloured bitter, no head. Has a mild fruit character which coupled with its smoothness in the palate makes for a very pleasant ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Pours clear copper with thin creamy head. Aroma of malt and ozone. Light toffee apple flavours. Malt and bitterness well balanced with a distinct sweetness throughout. Perhaps a touch too sweet, but very enjoyable.
