Poured a clear bronze color, a bit like the color of maple syrup itself - with a small off-white head. Aroma was sweet maple, sugar notes. Not a whole lot else going on in this one.

Mild wood and butterscotch nose. Clear copper, thin head. Dried leaves with a kiss of maple syrup. Well balanced, but the flavor could be better. Fizzy. Meh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a clear amber, dare I say maple, color with a decent but fast dissipating white head. Aroma is very faint maple, cinnamon, caramel, bread, and an earthiness to it. Taste is an interesting semi sweet and bitter smoothness on the tongue that rounds out to a nice maple and floral that lingers for a while. Interesting.

Bomber from Beer Run. Pours a clear bronze color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Nice looking beer. Aroma of maple, nuts, toffeeish malts, herbal almost tinny hops. The taste is big maple notes, nuts, apple. Very granola-ish. Some stone fruits and a bitter hop finish. Medium bodied, average carbonation, slight lingering bitterness and slight lingering sweetness. Nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy deep copper coloured body with a thick, seven centimetre tall tan head - very large, of course. Aroma of malt, raisins, grapes, yeast, nuts and a bit of caramel and maple syrup, but just sweetness in general. Medium-bodied; Strong maple flavour at first in the taste with a definite sweetness over everything else. Some malt behind with apricots, raisins and a lot of earthy nuttiness. Aftertaste almost warm (even though beer is cold) showing some good malt flavours and that sweetness that persists throughout. Overall, a bit off on the balance, but some good sweetness and a nice maple flavour work well for the style, but don’t expect a great beer stacked up against others...this is a good amber with a nice sweetness. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 18-November-2011 for US$6.49 sampled at home in Washington on 01-October-2012.

Poured an amber brownish color, aromas of caramel, light maple, and some hazelnut. Not too much maple in the flavor, have to try to really find it, ok beer overall.
