BeerViking (3010) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2011
50cl bottle, pours clear amber with a fine white head and aroma of apple, citrus and a hint of honey. Initial crisp bitterness on the tongue is followed by malt and a touch of fresh wood, plus an underlying sweetness, then a bitter and grass-hoppy finish.

Leighton (13620) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2011
Bottle at home. Clear, copper-gold pour with a receding, white head. Some malt and caramel in the aroma, slight pine and herbs. Decent flavor, a lot of sweetness hitting the tongue at first. There is just the faintest hint of maple sugar, plus a bit of citrus bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes sweet, slightly sticky, with hints of alcohol and moss. An alright beer.

BeerBaboon (1740) - FINLAND - FEB 14, 2011
Keltainen ja vähävaahtoinen olut. Tuoksusa on hieman mallasta ja pahvia. Mieto ja neutraali. Hieman hedelmäisyyttä myös. Maussakin on pahvia. En kelpuuta eteeni toiste.

booldawg (46) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2010
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.
