2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden copper color with a large frothy white. Smell is strong and filled with smokey ham and a buttery maple frosting sweetness. Taste of this beer is pretty strange, don’t get a lot of bacon flavor just mostly smoke. Caramel sweetness with a bitter hop finish. I get a little maple flavor that lingers in the mouth. The flavor is fairly chemically tasting. The body is light with medium to heavy carbonation. Overall this beer was a fun novelty item but certainly was not very enjoyable to drink, although it became easier towards the end of the bottle.

Pours light brown with a tan head. Aroma sweet maple. Flavor smoky, maple sugar, and bacony. Too much on the smokiness. I was expecting more..but hey...this was unique...one time tasting....and the bottle is marvelous!

Barwa bursztynowa. Piana drobna, obfita, trwała. Słodki zapach syropu klonowego i lukru. W smaku syrop klonowy, palony kabel, bardzo słaba nuta wędzonego bekonu. Goryczka niska. Piwo nudne i nijakie.

Pours a golden slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells fruity, maple, wood, forest and resin. Tastes maple, woods, watery. Strange, not bad. Average carbo, thin body and a watery texture.

BOTTLE. Got a lot of smoked ham up front with a very sticky sweet maple finish, seemed to be very cloudy & copper in colour. With a very sweet & sticky aroma from the maple....

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours very dark brown, with a very thick, quickly dissipating head.
Powerful aromas of bacon and maple immediately waft up from the bottle and glass. Smells like a Canadian breakfast in a bottle.
Tastes of very smoky bacon, with hints of maple coming through. Surprisingly not all that sweet, which was a welcome surprise.
Overall, easy to dismiss as a novelty beer, but this one has some legs, and I could definitely drink it again.
