3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It pours a clear copper color leaving the same color body. A nice one inch white foamy head appears and concaves to leave some nice foamy lacing around the sides of the pint glass. The body is light enough for some carbonation to be seen rising. The smell is all about the maple up front pretty much masking everything else even after some warming, I was hoping some other possible flavors might show up, but not this time. The taste is exceptionally sweet, perhaps a bit too much maple, I wasnít expecting this. The palate is about a medium and very smooth, possibly because of the extra maple in this beer. Overall, I really wasnít expecting this beer to be this good. Though its more of a dessert beer because of the sweetness, Iíd probably have it again. I will say its very different for the style.

4 oz pour on draft at Spacebar. Clear golden amber with off-white head. Aromas of corn syrup, maple syrup. Tastes of maple syrup, brown sugar, corn syrup. Medium body with a dry finish. Like cheap corn syrup based maple syrup.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle pours a reddish amber color with a finger of off-white head that leaves some spotted lacing behind. Aroma is dominated by maple with some herbal and caramel notes. Taste is a bold maple flavor with some herbal hop bitterness and a caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, this brew is unbalanced with too much maple, otherwise not bad for an amber ale.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a dark amber, almost a copper from a bottle. Aroma of cloying sweet maple syrup, almost buttery in aroma and flavor too. Rather overly sweet, which I suppose was to be expected. Iím also just not a fan of ambers. Meh.

Bottle. Reddish with a small beige head. Smells of leaves, maple. Taste is heavy maple syrup, grass, leaves. Interesting. Not sure if I like it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 650 ml. bottle. 2015. batch. Handsome copper-amber pour with lingering cream colored head. There is maple syrup direct from the sap house all over the aroma with a more muted grain and oatmeal character. Medium body. Lots of maple sweetness in the taste too with a slight bitter finish. But the maple leads the way.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear bright orange/golden with a thick off white head...great lacing and retention. Aroma has notes of sweet dry dry leaves...maple, honey, light toasted grain. Flavor is very sweet as well with notes of leaves, maple, earthy bitterness, and tea...fairly balanced. Mouthfeel is full and the finish lingers with tea and mild earthy bitterness.

Pours an amber color with a nice sweet maple syrup aroma! I taste some apples and maple syrup in my mouth! Would pair very well with a bacon rich breakfast. Alas, I have no breakfast right now so the rating will reflect that.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a reddish color, very clear. Stable off-white head. Aroma has fruit with apples and some maple. Taste is sweet and malty with maple and more fruit. A bit too fruity. Maple doesnít shine like I thought it would. The aftertaste is good with some maple flavors that the main taste didnít have. Overall ok.

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Well this is the strangest beer Iíve tried. Iím not sure how to describe it... Iím not even sure how I like it. Nice even brown color, but more clear than it should be. Kind of a vegetable aroma, not much maple, but drinking leaves some syrup-like film on your lips. Maple? Maybe, canít tell. Not bitter, actually sweet, so maybe maple. Terry it...What do you think?
