Bottle shared by JCB at the end of the night of a great tasting. This beer sucked. We all expected it to be a little better as this brewery had been hyped up in recent months but this beer definitely displayed characters of suckiness. Sweet, and slightly corny and grainy at times. Just bad. Still would like to try the ipa’s from these guys.

Bomber from a trade on BA - thanks! Deep into the evening by the time this one was cracked. Dirty brown pour, rocky carbonation. Sharp malty nose with a slightly ashy, grainy note in there - maybe burnt syrup? Body is medium, sort of prickly carbonation. Taste is bitter grains and brown sugar, like something from a failed cooking tryout at the IHOP.

Served in a snifter. Pours a moderate copper color with a half-finger of white head. A moderate amount of a white head and a bit of a thin collar as it goes down. The nose brings some slight maple character. Very faint indeed. There is a bit of sweet grain and some brown sugar there as well. The taste is slight molasses and brown sugar in addition to a bit of maple character. Medium body with pretty good carbonation. Not my favorite Lawson’s beer, though glad I got to pick this bottle up. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-19-2010

deyholla (8114) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber brown with a near white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma is a bit thin with a sweet grain and fruit note as well as a hint of caramel. Flavor is thin as well with sweet grains some fruit and a bit of caramel and maple in the finish. The lack of maple really let me down.

Thanks to Sean for this 22oz bottle poured in a perfect pint glass... This pours a clear medium copper with about a full finger of off white head. Good retention leaves a solid ring, ok lacing... the aroma is light and sweet. Maple is the main note throughout, also some honey. Boring... The taste is borderline bad slight maple, stale wet grains, medicinal and flat. This just doesn’t taste very good, not appealing or new. I had a tough time drinking my pour.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours an amber golden body with a white head and light retention. Strong brown sugar notes, grape soda and what feels artificial like flavor despite knowing real maple is used. Honey and grape soda tones a hint of iodine and brown sugar. Eh not so great.

Copper amber with one finger of light tan head. Nose is subdued and grainy, papery with some musty ass. Flavor: see above. No me gusta.

Simple, mostly forgettable brown-ale-like object that is kind of sweet. Hides the 8% alcohol well. Thanks to whoever shared this at post-EBF tasting. I guess.

j12601 (7859) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Bottle at the double 5k tasting. Pours a hazed brown with a thin beige head. Toast, light sweet maple and big grains. Medium bodied, grainy and toasty. Long grains on the finish, but not much maple overall.

Bottle shared at Paul and Ryan’s 5,000th rate tasting. Pours golden amber with a thin white head. Sweet malty aroma, toffee, with some light maple notes. The flavor has toffee, maple, and light floral hops. Pretty good.
