1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2012 Draft from a fresh growler. Pours hazy amber with an ivory head. Aroma of toffee and plastic. Overattenuated, with the residual sugars pretty much gone (killing the maple), and many off favors on the finish. Tons of problems with this one. Sorry girls, I love what you two are doing with your marketing, but this was a drain pour. I hope you will consider going back to the drawing board on this one, otherwise you may have a hard time getting residual sales (no one wanted to finish this growler). Good concept, not so great results :( But I will continue to try more of your stuff as it becomes available at bars and beer stores (looking to try the Rye next). I am a firm supporter of local breweries. Just trying to provide HONEST feedback.

Draft. Maple and toffee malt aroma. Amber with small head. Sweet light maple, toffee malt, and mildly bitter herbal hay flavor. Good body. Nice - maple subdued.

Tasted on 2/3/12 on draft at the brewery. Pours cloudy brown with a thick tan head that leaves fairly thick lace. The nose is malty, nutty, lightly caramelized cereal malt with the maple showing nicely and just a touch of smoke. The flavor is all dry nutty cereal malt with more bitterness, but no real maple flavor. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long nutty maple and hint of smoke finish.

Sweet on the nose. Some maltiness. Subtle, underwhelming. Like the idea of the beer more than the actual beer.

Draft - Sweet toasted grains. Clear dark amber with a rich beige head. Toasted malts and a bit nutty with maple in the finish. Not a fan of maple beers, but expect to taste it more than I am in this.

Flight at heaven and ale with Brian. Maple/sweet aroma and taste at first but not overpowering. Great finish. Thick beer. Very good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft->shaker. Brown with small offwhite head. Aroma: sweet malt and bread. Taste is similar, with molasses and a touch of added maple. Feels a bit contrived and forced, and would not want more than one at a sitting.
