COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American Amber Ale brewed with maple syrup and honey to give it a full body and smooth sweetness

Approach with caution. This one will sneak up on you! Brewed to keep us warm in the winter months, but easily enjoyable any time of the year. Syrup and honey give this beer an irresistible sweetness that makes it impossible to have just one. No matter what you pair this one with make sure you get plenty to eat or you might find out how this beer got its name.

On tap. Pours a hazy deep amber with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grains with a grassiness and a bit of maple. Flavor combines grass and sweet grains with an underlying caramel and maple.

pours cloudy medium dark golden orange with a light beige orange head, some retention and lacing. spicy and sweet fruity malts, bitter herbs and grass, belgian spicy yeastiness, good dose of caramel, some sweetness - woodsy honey, bit of nail polish and perfume. thankfully no articial maple esters. moderately low carbonation, light to medium body - fairly oily, semi-sweet, bittering and lightly astringent grassy-woodsy-spicy finish. no flaws are anything but just kind of unblending components, or just bland and blah.

The hints of maple and honey come out and complemented by the can. Only because he was my childhood idol was I one of the few people who bought Big Hurt Beer but this reminds me of a better crafter version of that beer. Nothing subtle about this amber. It's drinkable but nothing magnificent. Can. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 oz can shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a hazy amber color with a small offwhite head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, maple syrup, earthy hops, light fruit, grainy malt, grass, light citrus, rubbing alcohol to the finish as it warmed . OK.

b3shine (5492) - Indiana, USA - JUL 1, 2014
16 oz can to snifter (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks good; a hazy amberish orange with off-white head. Smells semi-sweet and a little toasty with somewhat of a cheap lager nose to it. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced from diluted maple syrup (at least so it seems). Average (at best) on the palate. Not my thing.

12oz bottle to shaker. Amber colored as expected. I think the addition of syrup and honey boosted the gravity but not the flavor. Easy drinking and probably dangerously so at 8.2.

Draft. Clear amber pour with an off-white head. Mild malts and minimal hops in the aroma and taste. An OK down the middle amber ale.

umich03jm (1994) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Tap. This beer is appropriately named. Solid clear copper pour with a small head that collects to a ring. Aroma is mostly stale, herbal hops mixed with some light burnt caramel. Tastes kinda gross. Generic maltiness mixed with stale hops. Big metallic notes. Hard to finish my pour.

johnnyoski (439) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Draft at Bagger Dave’s. Dark Amber color with a small off white head. Malty aroma with a trace of hops. Semi sweet malty flavor with a sharp bitterness that lingers. Dry texture with average carbonation. Rather dull tasting but not offensive.

hotstuff (4096) - Indiana, USA - APR 26, 2014
Rated on 01-04-2012 (Bottle) The appearance is a small smooth off-white head with a short retention, transparent amber body with fast rising, fizzy carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malty, some hops and semi-sweet. The flavor is sweet, malty and harsh hop tasting. The mouthfeel is lively and this beer is light-medium bodied. This beer lacks character and the flavor is very lackluster and disjointed. This is a beer I do not recommend and it is not on my list to want to drink again.
