2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz bottle. $5.49 @ local Market Basket. Amber in a pint. Steady carbonation creates a ¼ thick white head with nice retention. Caramel and a metallic aroma. The metallic shows up in the flavor as well. Under the metallic flavor is light maple and a trace of oats that give it a medium body. Would I call this a bad beer?? No. However, would I buy it again?? No

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 22 oz bomber. Pours a slightly murky, dark copper with a sticky white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma is a bit muddled - some burnt coffee, a hint of maple syrup sweetness. Flavor has some of that muddled quality to it as well. Pick up some maple syrup sweetness, a bit of dark unsweetened chocolate, lots of crystal malt artificial sweetening. Mouthfeel is sticky. Very average.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
11/11/11. 22oz bottle. Clear brown/amber pour with a small fluffy khaki head that fades. Extremely plain aroma with a touch of sweet caramel and a ton of metal. Huge metallic/iron flavor with just barely a touch of maple and maybe a hint of roasted caramel malts. Borderline horrible.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
22oz bottle, twist-off with gold foil. Deep copper color, thick creamy tan head. Aroma of cold oatmeal with fermented maple flavoring. Maple is non-existent. The most distant scent and that may be all. Decent medium body. Seems to be force carbonated, sharp, overly fizzy with big bubbles. Mostly finishes with a light earthiness, some bitterness in the end. Just a basic cardboard finish. Not the best of Peak Org stuff.
