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.

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.

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

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Bouteille 22 oz. Brune-rousse semi-translucide. Nez et bouche: malt caramélisé et sirop d’érable, une pointe métallique et un peu d’alcool en finale. Un peu trop mince.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2013 Tap. Pours clear reddish amber with a small tan head, creamy with some lacing. Aroma is caramel and maple dominated. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, lightly bitter, with a touch of something like orange zest mixed with metal on the finish. I have had a couple other maple beers that finished this way as well, and I am not a fan. Light body, some warming on the finish from the ABV.
