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.

Not sure if the maple adds to the already malty flavor or if it actually is the maple. Strange sweetness, very nice palate though. gift from uckelman

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2016
500ml Bottle from Lidl, Langley Moor. This has a strange, very pinkish, red-brown hue with moderate carbonation driving a loose, off-white head that diminishes very quickly leaving the beer look a little flat. The nose is equally unappealing with sickly overripe notes jarring with vinegar and making me fear that this would be a shocker. Fortunately the taste is better, with soft, doughy malts prominent and as promised some maple syrup flavours on a dry finish. It’s full and just a little lively on the palate. I had this while eating dinner; its slight stodginess definitely complements food.

lokis333 (409) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - FEB 28, 2016
Clear deep amber color with small off white foam. Aroma of malt and bit caramely, quite weak and sweet, typical for a bitter. Palate, Medium body with thickish oily texture leaving calamel malt finish. Taste, Lightly bitter, malty, oily and nutty but quite simple. Overall, As a bitter it is quite nice full body and full flavour but quite typical.

Bottle. Appearance - deep amber with a red hue. A decent head. Nose - maple, as well as usual toffee. Taste - more toffee, light nuttiness, maple I suppose. Palate - close to medium bodied with a rich creamy middle section and a finish which could be a little cleaner, to be honest. Overall - a decent ESB but I’d like more clean biscuit notes on the finish.

Pyobon (1315) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 4, 2015
(Bottle) Clear coppery amber with almost no head. Pleasant but subtle light toffee aroma. Medium body with good carbonation. Nice taste - rich and sweet with toffee malt flavours and distinct maple notes with some slight tangy and bitter balance. Good beer with maple present but not overwhelming. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from lidl, wednesbury. Amber beer with small residual head. Aroma of caramel and malts. Taste is malts, some sweetness that could be maple syrup but since I have never had it, I can’t be sure and some mold hop bitterness. Ok.
