2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Deep mohogany color with an off-white head that diminishes kind off slowly. Not much to the smell. A little on the bland side. Very thin maple taste. Some sweet/bitternes shows up for a short aftertaste.

There are four types of hops and seven USA grains in this bad boy. Note the rating when I say "bad". Extremely malty finish. Nothing else.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not very impressive. The color is good, a deep copper luster. But the palate is dominated by that stale, flat, oxidized hop characteristic that seems to plague many mediocre microbrews.
