500ml bottle. Pours amber with very little off white head that goes away fairly quickly. Smoky aroma. Oily palate. Sweet flavors of maple and candy sugar making this a tad too sweet for my liking but not bad for what it is.

Interesting collaboration lager. Reminds me of a 50/50 blend of Lawsons Maple Nipple and JA Smoke and Dagger, but it turns out better then both those beers in my opinion. Interesting spicy maple flavor blends with a meaty smokeyness.

Tap at Farmhouse. Typically smoke AND maple are my two least favourite things in beer, so I really shouldn’t have ordered this, but with two very interesting breweries behind it I had to try. Pours amber with some head and little lacing. Notes of bacon, smoke, some maple but not overwhelming. Nicely balanced. Medium body with lively carbonation.

tap. pleasant campfire smoked back by some old earthy smoked doughs. maple and lactose sugars make this a tad too sweet for my liking. potent beer that seems more enjoyable in smaller doses.

Pours a rich deep copper brown color with a finger or two of eggshell foam. Earthy smoked malt, maple sugar and some underlying pine. Would like to braise some sausage in this beer but as a pint its a little underwhelming. Too much smoke and maple not enough balance and integration.
