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.

Lots of woody and sweet smells consistent with maple syrup. Feels great in the mouth. not too sweet. some floral bitterness just a slightly too short finish.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2016 Aroma has some woody notes in the background and lots of sweet malt. Smooth texture. Long lasting flavour full of toffee and maple sweetness. Full bodied. Great taste.

sm89walt (1972) - 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 (23713) - 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

Bottle from Morrisons. Pours amber with off-white head. Could taste maple along with plenty of malt and hops. Nice for a pasteurised beer.
