Hazy brown with red highlights...short, off-white head.
Maple syrup and nut aroma.

Not overtly maple, but a good, solid brown ale....

Dark Dirty Brown, Medium Small Head That Does Not Last, Spotty Lacing. Mellow Maple, Toasted Malt Aroma. Maple, Toasted Malt, Caramel, Sugary Sweet. Slightly Higher Carbonation Than I Like. Pretty Good. Worth A Try...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Shadyside. Expected more flavor --- hard to find the maple underneath everything else. Not bad, but could nave been better.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very unusual color -- dark and cloudy, darker than I expected. Not much head nor lacing. Understated aroma, slightly sweet, Delicious taste though, not overly maple, but you can definitely taste it. No bitterness, good beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
FROM NOTES: July 1, ’12
Beer poured from bottle into a pint glass.
A: Sweet maple syrup and a nutty roasted malt flavor; brown sugar notes.
A: Beer pours with a dark brown, opaque body without much visible carbonation. Head was small, about a finger in size and quickly dissipated into little to no lacing.
T: Starts off with a nice sweet maple syrup, which quickly bridges into a nut-packed roasted malt flavor; brown sugar and some faint notes of pear to finish.
P: Thin body; low carbonation; creamy/syrupy feel at first, then quickly fades away; semi-sweet aftertaste, sugar lingers for a while
O: Super sweet; nice maple syrup & nut brown combination. Serving type: bottle

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Dec. 2010. Pours a slick, oil mahogany with little head. Aroma is similar to liquid malt extract and little else. Flavor is sticky sweet maple syrup and malt extract. Light syrup is the predominant flavor here. Slightly oily with syrup flavor in the finish. A bit one dimensional, as the maple syrup sweetness is dominant, but it’s a soft enough sweetness to be better than I was expecting.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours brown with rapidly settling, fine khaki head, no lacing. Aroma is fairly sweet, malty, nutty, toffee with a mildly roasted finish. Soft carbonation, light body, a little underwhelming on the mouthfeel. A mild, drinkable, nutty ale. Drinkable but could be much bigger, bolder.

Nut brown , nut brown, not the best. Nut brown, nut brown, fail the test. 2.9 for you.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer pours okay with a nice reddish brown hue, mild white head, and minimal lacing. The smells okay with mild notes of caramel, chocolate, and a nutty scent (smells like pecans). The beer tastes decently with a nice blend of caramel and sweet maple at first, then moves into the nutty chocolate taste. The mouthfeel is okay with a mild chocolate taste and okay carbonation. Overall, this beer is average, not bad but not good either. It has some good qualities and lacks in other areas too.
