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 donít 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 Oliverís Beverage in Albany, New York on 18-November-2011 for US$6.49 sampled at home in Washington on 01-October-2012.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is malty and hoppy but has no maple. The appearance is amber with a smaller head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a nice beer but itís basically maple free.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
There is hardly any maple in this beer, but the rest of the beer is very good for what it is. has a nice caramel presence with a touch of hops that are not essential but offer a great drinkable beer for the serious beer lover.
