Pours brown with no head. Aroma of malt, brown sugar and maple. Taste is sweet, malty, lots of brown sugar and slight roast. Not good, overly sweet and not a lot of flavor

Bottle, pours red with small white head, minimal lacing. Aromas of wet dog, very very light syrup, coke, peach, and sweet pale malts. Overall, this was bland, thin, and just plain weird. Ratings are on point with this one, prefer the stouts from the fayston stuff.

Bottle share at the Coffee District. Clear amber pout with a white head. Some weak maple syrup and cola notes. Not too much to talk about. Pretty bland and lifeless.

Bottle @ a recent bottle share... Poured amberish with an eggy head. Sort of underwhelming for Lawson’s Finest here. Dark sugars that lent themselves towards maple syrup. Bready malts, and earthy tones too. But overall one dimensional and the thin mouthfeel left it kind of boring.

22oz bottle in a shaker. Pours brown with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of maple, some nuttiness, caramel malts, hints of spices and floral hops and alcohol. Flavor the same, with a cola-like finish. Average texture. Not bad but not great.

Thanks to kevanb for the share. 750 ml bottle served in a FW mini snifter.
A: Pours a dark amber color with a thin tan had forming on the pour. It recedes quickly to a thin ring. Minimal lace.
S: Slightly hoppy with maple sweetness. Stale malts with a light cookie sweetness to it. Raw honey.
T: Lagery and kolsch like. Maple sweetness. Pale malts with a little blandness to them.
M: Medium to light bodied. Medium low carb. Slighlty sweet.
O: This was ok. Very odd style of beer. Wouldn’t really want to try again.
Serving type: bottle

From Farmhouse. Sweet aroma. Poured clear amber color with off white head. Sweet taste with hints of maple, brown sugar, caramel, and toffee. Very light bodied, almost watery feel. Overall, it’s something I’ve been wanting to taste for a while and while it’s an okay maple beer, there’s nothing interesting about it.

Recent bottle. Amber body, plenty of white head & lace. Malty, maple-y, not as complex as when I had it on draft a few weeks ago. Mild sweetness lingers after I swallow; some booziness too. Decent, not great.

Bottle shared by Gillard, pours an orange amber color, aromas of maple syrup, brown sugar, and light pine. Flavors are all maple syrup sweetness, and boze. Light spice in the aftertaste, interesting beer, thanks for the share Ryan.

This beer is really strange. Its quite boozy with spicyness that reminds me of spruce? and rye. Not that sweet but very odd. Kind of like a high Abv spiced brown ale i guess. weird.
