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

Looks like beer w/ maple syrup in it. Tastes like beer w/ maple syrup in it, not good. Its a big turn off, and the smell sux too. Given my bottle is approaching the four month mark, but this jst isnít good.

Draft, Great Decatur Beerfest. Ruddy clear brown pour. Sweet maple aroma, nutty and toasty. Flavor was a bit of a letdown. Toasted caramel malt flavors, maple sugary. Just didnt seem to jive with me.

Bottle. Deep transparent brown with a reddish glow. Minimal head. Sweet nutty aroma with a touch of butter flavored maple syrup. Flavor not as good as aroma, odd minerally quality in the background, kind of like diet soda. Tastes thinner than it feels. Not bad, but aroma promised more. Why in Minnesota do we get assaulted with weak Colorado breweries like this one and Breckenridge, and canít get decent stuff like New Belgium?

(12oz bottle) Small off-white head atop a clear dark red-brown body. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel, some maple, light nutty, chocolate. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, nutty, maple. Minimal bitterness. Watery, fairly flat, light-medium body with a bit of stickiness.

Pours an ugly dirty dark reddish brown with no head at all. Aroma of molasses and dark fruits. Flavor has notes of toasted malt, brown sugar, caramel and maple syrup. Pretty sweet, not much hop bitterness detected. Thin, watery body with very subtle, almost flat carbonation. Didnít like this one too much.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - SEP 24, 2005
12oz. Pours a dark caramel color with little head. Nose is a good sweet maple syrup, sugar, and some mixed nuts. Taste comes off sour and bland. Little bit of nuts, but the maple sweetness is gone. finishes with a coating on your tongue.

strange sugary dog food aroma. very unpleasant. dark amber color. no head. unique but not sure i am a fan. the maple is a good idea but it conflicts with one of the other ingredients.

badgerben (4407) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 31, 2005
Dark brown color with no head. It has a nice nutty aroma thatís blended with a bit of earth or even peat. The taste is muddy; not muddled, muddy. Slightly sweet finish, but in the end, it just tasted like dirt.

DrinkBeerBuck (1) - Wyoming, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2005 does not count
Dark brown with slight medium light tan head. Sweet roasted malt with a hint of maple, mild nut flavor, different and rather pleasurable. Low carbonation. Best at the brewpub!

Thin head. Red Brown. Raisins in the nose, dark malts and a kiss of maple syrup. Taste is of old instant sanka. Thin w/corn syrups to maple finish.
