COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Bottle from TWM Sterling - Well I liked this one better than the imperial version, but thatís not saying much. Itís average, but not spectacular.

ajnepple (1685) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - MAY 29, 2013
12 oz bottle. Amber-brown with ruby hues and clear with an off-white head that lasts and laces the glass. Pretty mild aroma of caramel, nuts, chocolate, brown sugar and sweet bready malts. Similar flavor. Light thin body with a soft feel and a touch of maple syrup in the finish. Decent, pretty easy to drink.

kramer (4694) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear light brown body with a minimal fizzy off-white head that fell quickly to a thin film. The nose is on the sweeter side, some light brown sugar, toasted malt, a little huskiness, and some maple sugar. The flavor is pretty similar, a little sweeter than I card for because of the maple sugar notes. Toasted and slightly nutty malt with a touch of lightly roasted coffee on the finish. Lighter bodied with light fizzy carbonation. Lingering sweet finish. Not the best or most exciting brown ale, but then again, there arenít many of those out there.

Smoothsippin (30) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Pours brown with a beige head. Slightly sweet on the nose, but didnít really catch the maple. Hint of maple into the mouth with a subtle sweetness. Very smooth through the swallow without much bitterness. Good session beer. Overall, I really liked it and would have again.

pharmassist (17) - Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2013
bottle. Pours dark brown with a very thin head. Smells of sweet maple syrup are all I can detect. Flavor is very plain. Not much of a brown ale, and not much of anything else yet it goes down smooth. This brew is really hard to describe yet there isnít anything memorable about it. Slight hints of maple and caramel are present. A beer that most could drink without problem but people looking for more complex flavors should look elsewhere.

Strangebrewer (794) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2013
bottle. Poured clear brown with a thin off-white head. Malty, brown sugar aroma. Light mouthfeel, smooth carbonation, slightly tart finish. Medium sweet caramel malt flavour, nutty note. A nice session brew.

crazyvin (1861) - New York, USA - APR 12, 2013
This beer seemed to have an identity crisis. Itís called a nut brown ale, but leans closer to an amber ale. Body was mostly a dark amber-red hue with a tan head that had mild retention. Aroma was mostly caramel malts but there was some roasted malts to it. A good hint of sweetness from the maple syrup. Flavor was nice and balanced, some nice malts and a nice sweetness from the maple syrup. There was no real hop note to it, which was disappointing because it seemed to be a two-dimensional beer. Finish was smooth and it was easy to drink.

cthomas2390 (201) - Colorado, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours a nice clear brown. Tight, lacing, off-white head. Nutty caramel with a bit of hop background in the aroma. Sweet maple and caramel flavors are gently toned down by moderate hops. Healthy body with soft carbonation. Nice residual sweetness lingers.
