Has a nice amber color with not much head. Has a syrup and waffle like scent, the taste is like a smoked hotdog/brat/bacon.

Clear pale copper small head... Initial aroma of sweeet maple syrup and smokey bacon pungent evolves into less maple and more campfire... sweet maple bacon campfire... too tooo thin needs more body behind it...

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(750ml bottle) Purchased at Liquor Plus Douglas for $12.99. Pours a reddish amber hue, highly carbonated with no head. Nose is burnt wood, maple cookie and peppered jerky. Flavour is thinner and sweeter than one would expect from the nose. Tastes little like bacon - more of fried candied jowels (orielles de cochon). The burnt palate finish leaves you with with the flavour of a recently extinguished candle. Way over priced and of little value.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amber pour with big eggy head. Nose is smells like maple syrup with a little smokiness/ Body is really flat lacks any nuance. Slightly smokey, slightly sweet with hint of maple. Gimmicky beer but about what i figured.
Nice label design. Opaque pink bottle.

Bottle from Total Wine, performed as expected, the taste is ok, but I find sweet flavors without actual sweetness off putting. The bacon smell comes across as smokey in taste. Share this bottle w/ a few people if you actually want to get through it.

note as bad as a thought it was going to be. Really odd flavors going on. Don’t like the fact that it has no body. flat on the palate. ODD but interesting.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bright pink bottle (750 ml) on the shelf stands out and screams “pick me up”. Curiosity got the best of me so I had to try it. Pours an amber color with a small off white head. The aroma is a dominant maple, smoked maplewood bacon and malt. The sweetness can be a little over powering. Better as a group sampling. 5oz. is about all I really wanted from this beer. Thin mouth feel and a short finish doesn’t help. Feels like a “gimmick beer”.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Scott and Kate's. Aroma was mostly maple smoke and some bacon. Flavor is almost exactly like a maple-glazed donut, but a hint of bacon still comes through. It's amazing to me how uncanny these flavors are, considering the ingredients. Not a beer where I could drink the whole bottle. Very unique and off-the-wall, novelty beer.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle pours a hazy amber/orange with a large off-white head. Aroma of maple syrup, sweet dough, slight smoked malt under all the sweetness, and cream soda. Certainly smells like an inviting breakfast, but not a beer. If the taste were more in line with the aroma this might be decent. However, it is not. There are no distinct flavors in the taste just bland sweetness follow by nondescript smoke and ending with a rather gross bitterness, and a lingering over cured rotten bacon flavor. Enjoyable aroma, otherwise pretty gross.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml brown bottle. Golden pour, hazy, fat white creamy cap. Mapley nose with a bit of underlying smokiness. In the mouth the beer has some sweetness - caramel and maple, also woody, smoky, meaty, toasty. Light hops at the end. Lingering wood and smoke aftertastes and a little deep throat bitterness. Body and carbonation seem average. Interesting bacon cooked over the campfire mixed with beer. I like it.
