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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2009 Slightly metallic nose. Pours rich amber with a firm, tan head. Flavour is refreshing, with a reasonable hoppy bitterness/malty sweetness balance. Don’t get any maple at all. More metallic notes in the finish unfortunately, but ok over all.
