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.

christhoel (284) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2014
amber, clear, white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, full body, thick feel, average carbonation, Reddish amber with white head. Quite carbonated but nevertheless a reasonable, fuller flavoured bitter. Sweetish fruity malt notes with a touch of pine leaf, some toffee and a reasonable hoppy finish. i’ve definitely had worse.

Blander than I expected. A very light hint of maple but I think the bottle hammed it up slightly. Not much of a hoppy flavour either. Pass on this.

500ml Bottle, 4.8% ABV. Pours a deep golden colour with an off white head. Nice hit of maple on the mouth and a hood hop aroma.

Lovely amber colour matched by the hoppy malty taste. Very palatable however the taste is improved if chilled ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Clear tea-coloured ale with a thin off-white head. Nose has a slight honey tinge with a touch of banana. First swig give you a blast of maple, which gives way to a bitter, resinous body. You’re left with a nice warm sweet maple taste in the mouth - rather pleasant.

500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Not much to say about this beer. It’s just a bit average.

Pours copper with hardly any head. Smell is malty and slightly sweet. On first taste I didn’t really think there was much at all going on but after a few more sips I noticed the flavours coming through. Mildly sweet and malty with floral notes. Unless the bottle stated it I wouldn’t pick up on the maple, then the hop bitterness comes through which lifts this beer up from below average. It has a very thin mouth feel and the carbonation levels are a bit too strong for this type of beer. All in all not bad and I would drink it again but nothing too special.
