3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice clear brown colour with a small creamy tan head that leaves small amounts of lace on the glass. Aroma is smoked malts, maple, some roasted malts and traces of nuts. taste is sweet maple, a good malty presence, smoked malts, light astringent bitterness, and hints of nuttiness. Smells great, good mouthfeel even looks pretty good but i find the taste to be a bit off.

A dark amber ale with a thin light mocha head. In aroma, sweet maple caramel malt with light spicy notes, dark fruits, smooth coffee. In mouth, dark fruity malt with molasses, maple, nutty notes, not bad.

Mostly amber in colour with very little head. You can taste the smoke for sure but not much maple.

1oz sample. Dark brown pour with a bubbly tan head, medium retention. Aroma is roast malts, light smokeand a hint of maple syrup. Taste is dry, quite malty with a sweet, maple kick into the finish. Mouthfeel is dry, lightly carbonated. Maple beers really arenít my thing, but this is an ok red ale.

bottle. Poured deep ruby with a beige head. Rich malt aroma. Soft carbonation with a medium creamy texture, finishes acidic. Malt flavour, brown sugar, some earthy wood notes and some pepper. Didnít really get any maple syrup notes.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330mL bottle from the mixed-sixer. Clearish brown with a large beige head. The aroma is nice, standard caramalts and whatnot, with a hint of maple. The flavour is where this one really shines with a nice rich malt body, somewhat bready with a small touch of maple in the finish. Itís like they took the base malts for Tankhouse, didnít add hops and added some maple extract, and I quite enjoy it. Iím not sure where the mediocre ratings are coming from, I guess maybe some people expected way more maple but whatever.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (355 ml). From czar, thanks! Clear dark amber/copper with a medium quickly fainting off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is of nuts, smoke, malt and sweetness notes. Taste is moderately sweet (weird and unpleasant lactose sweetness) with nuts, malt and smokey notes. Medium body. If it was not of the weird lacto sweetness, it could be a decent beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear deep amber with a big light brown head. Aroma of smoked malt, maple syrup, and a cross between chocolate/roast malt. Taste is is a malty goodness with some smoke, maple and a nice creamy texture. Moderate low carbonation and a clean finish round out this beer nicely.

341ml bottle - I think from gc. Rather attractive clear deep burnt copper pour with a solid fairly long-lasting foamy/fizzy beige head. Smells ... ew. vegetal, some maple sweetness; pretty nasty. Taste - not bad, like a light brown ale with maple - slick, thin, mildly carbonated, thankfully quick-finishing. Ehh.
