3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Amber pour with a fairly sizeable head. Maple syrup aroma. Sweet maple throughout, burnt brown sugar, caramel malt, grainy, a bit of wood. Medium body. Dessert beer. You have to REALLY like Maple to dig this one.

750 ml bottle to taster. Looks solid; a cloudy caramelish orange with off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells malty with a less than balanced blend of caramel, grain, and maple syrup. Tastes like it smells with a medium full-bodied mouthfeel. Soft and underwhelming.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Lawson’s Farmers Market.
Appearance: Hazy dark orange-y with a small off-white head and a bit of lacing.
Aroma: Quite malty and grainy with a sugary impression, maple, candi, alcohol and a bit of spices.
Taste: On the sweet side, almost cloying for me. Grains, maple, alcohol, spices and raisins.
Palate: Medium to full body. Medium carbonation. Sweet and sugary finish with alcohol, spices and maple notes.
Overall: I didn’t liked this one that much, partly because it’s really not a kind of brew I’m fond of but also because it’s cloying, unbalanced and lack of refinement. It packs a decent amount of flavors, but it’s not an cohesive beer.

On tap at the brewery anniversary bottle release. Hazy copper pour with thin foamy white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, woody and earthy notes. Taste is malty, light maple, malty caramel sweetness that’s a little cloying. Palate is full bodied med carbonation. Decent.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
