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.

The beer pours an amber color with a medium head. The smell has malts up front followed by some sweetness. Taste has some mild hops up front followed by some wood an spruce. Good finish.

Nice and hard. Alcoholic. light malt, but a lot of hoppy bitterness.thick texture, lightly carbonated. Woodsy honey and smokey maple syrup.

Tessic (906) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2014
This ale poured a medium red colour with a white frothy head. Scents include honey, bananas, bubblegum and a faint hint of maple/caramel. First sip was smooth with a sweet honey,smoke, maple flavour in the forefront. Flavours of hops, caramel and smoke finishing with a light hop bitterness.

chucklemation (569) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - OCT 6, 2014
This one truly is a train wreck. Pours a dark amber with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet banana and honey. Flavor is a harshly bitter honey and banana. This was just awful. I was very tempted to drain it.

deyholla (7014) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2014
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.

czar (4688) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2014
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 (5850) - 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.
