3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the bottle. Pours solid copper color with off-white thin head that recedes quickly; some lacing. Aromas of maple sugar, and smoked wood chips. Sweet malts balanced by subtle smoky flavors, bacon, too; fades slowly on palate with nice lingering smoky flavor. Really good for a rainy day treat.

On tap into a tulip: Pours clear amber with a thin white head, good lacing. Aroma is caramel, maple syrup, and smoke. Taste is a bit sweet, but a lot of awesome. Lots of maple and rauchbier goodness. Medium body, slightly sticky mouthfeel, really tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body with a small wispy off-white head. The nose is lightly smoky and sweet with maple sugar and caramel. The flavor is sweet and smoky with a nice clean lagered finish. I like the natural tasting maple syrup in here. The smokiness is not quite as intense as I’d like it, but it’s still pretty pleasant. Medium bodied and very smooth with nice soft carbonation level. Pretty excellent, smooth stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a murky golden-brown...almost like a cider. Very thin head...minimal lacing. Aromas of ash, sugar, oak, lagered yeast. Taste is very interesting, if not weird. Get a big mouthfull of smokey malts...then the maple comes forward. Tastes almost like bacon! Serious! I don’t hate it...but I can’t say that I love it. Finishes pretty decent, but just not my cup-o-beer. And, I like "weird" beers usually.

500ml to the face at my place by myself while watching battle star galactica in my pajamas after working until 8:00. Aroma is oak, maple, light BBQ smokiness that actually works, aroma is nice like bacon. Taste is super interesting, sticky, barbecue smoke, brown sugar, Munich malt, oak. I like it, it’s one of the most interesting lagers I have had.
