A delicate amount of Maple syrup is added to each barrel of our award winning Maple Nut Brown Ale to impart roasted sweetness. This addition balances the nut flavor produced by Munich caramel and chocolate malts used in the brewhouse, producing a drinkable dark amber ale with a relatively low alcohol content. 2000 World Beer Cup Gold Medal & 1996 Great American Beer Festival Bronze Medal Winner

Sickeningly sweet smell with a flavor to match. Smooth but very little carbonation. Very sweet maple syrup taste with a tounge coating feel at the end of each sip.

Not as good as the Imperial version, but still very tasty. The nutty qualities are wonderful.

Bottle. A- Malty, real maple syrup, caramel, nutty. A- Copper color, clear liquid, quickly fading brown head. T- Malty, subtle maple syrup, caramel, bready. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish. O- Not too shabby. I could actually smell and sort of taste the maple syrup. I am not a brown ale fan but this one was alright. Could benefit from more of a nutty taste and a tab more maple on the palate otherwise good.

Pours dark brown with dark red hues and a foamy head. Aromas nutty, caramel, toffee. Flavors of light toffee, caramel and just a faint hint of maple (almost unnoticed). Lightly sweet. Light.

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Sweet aroma of malted grain, maple, caramel, honey, and light, floral hops. Very delicate, but very pleasant. The pour is sweet-tea brown with a very thin beige head that goes quickly and leaves no lacing. The mouthfeel is on the thin side, with mild carbonation. The taste is honey sweet, with a grainy bitter towards the end and smooth honey lingering. Very pleasant all around, shame the mouthfeel is so weak.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass purchased in Denver. I like it a lot. At first I thought it was sweet, but I may be associating maple with syrup. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"Really light generic maple/caramel aroma and flavor with some light roast and a slight medicinal aspect. Not too impressed with this one............."

Beer of the month club offering. Pours a clear brown with almost no head whatsoever. Sweet and malty aroma. Really enjoyed the taste - definitely had some sweetness from the maple syrup, and there was a core nutty-taste typical of brown ales. Good, easy to drink beer.
