3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reddish/brown pour with a foamy white head.The aroma is less than stellar, with a generic brown ale nose. Fairly malty sweet and caramel malt flavors. I guess if I had to drink tommyknocker, it would have to be a toss between this and the pickaxe. However, I would opt for something else.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A red-brown beer with a fine but disappearing off-white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted malt, caramel and nuts. The flavor is very roasted with notes of nuts as well as some burnt notes - I pick up more honey notes than maple sirup. The body is thin.

Aroma is of roasted malt and maple. Head is foamy with a brown tint which watery body, thin feel, and flat carbonated palate. A dark brown body. The sweet maple over powers the taste. Overall a lower than average brown no body and an overpowering sweet taste.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light white head dissipates quickly. Aroma is slightly sweet and fruity. The beer pours a dark brown color. The flavor is very smooth and drinkable. Not heavy and stout but just smooth with a slight sweet taste from the maple. I like this and will buy it again.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2005 This syrupy beer pours a very dark brown/transparent amber with a head that disappears immediately. The nose is simple sweet nuttiness. The taste is a maple syrup sweetness upfront, followed by next to no hops presence. The Honey Nut Cheerios sweetness is about all this one has.

Pours brownish with an off-white head that was gone before you noticed. This beer smelled good and tasted good for a bit. Once it was swallowed it lost what I liked.
