The Maple Trippel is WAAAAAY better. This one was just a bit meh. So far not entirely impressed with Lawson’s.

Pours dark orangish amber with white head. Aromas of sweet caramel, light maple, doughy malts. Flavors of bready malts, caramel, toffee, dark fruit, and some maple. Kind of has an old ale taste to it. Decent.

Deep amber with a cream head. Nose is maple, bready malts, more maple. Easy palate, heavy maple, dough, bread, sweet, sticky, smooth finish.

Bottle sample at RBWG grand tasting. Pours a hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet maple syrup notes, caramel, bread, raisins, and wood. Maybe a bit thinner than some of the other Lawson’s brews I’ve sampled.

Suttree (5042) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Sampled at 2014 RBWG Grand Tasting. I thought smelled better than it tasted. I got a little maple in the nose, and maybe some milk chocolate. Taste was a bit more earthy and I didn’t really get much maple.

Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle at RBWG Asheville Grand Tasting. Pours lightly hazy amber with a bubbly head. Nose of lightly oxidized malts, bread, toffee. Light to medium sweet flavor with awkward bready malts, mild leafy bitterness, brown sugar and golden raisins. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Sweet finish, more oxidized malts, sugary bread. So so.

A: Heavy Amber Hue, Passes Mild Light, Off White Head Ring, Some Lacing S: Maple Syrup, Bready T: Maple Syrup, Sweet Bread, Mild Crackers M: Average Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Sweet Overall, like a scaled down version of Maple Triple but without the sweetness or booziness....Im torn.
