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.

Not to impressed with this. Slight aromas and taste. Taste is artificial Maple is there but doesn’t save it. Once it goes down taste is gone.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2005 This looked like a frothy iced tea. The maple syrup, and little else, is present in the aroma. This is very watery in the mouth, way beyond what I would expect from a brown ale. The taste is light caramel, chocolate, and maple. Weak.

Brown, with a tan head. Woodsy, maple aroma. Smoove, like Denzel. Big notes of maple, as one might expect from a beer named "Maple Nut Brown Ale". Nicely sweet, not over poweringly so. Slight hop crispness at the end. Thanks to Springslicker for this one!

Beautiful looking beer. Another beer by Tommyknocker that taste like water. Better then the last one at least.

Surprised to see the average on this beer. Thought it was a pretty drinkable beer overall. A little watery and slighty too sweet which both bring overall down, but still a very good beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark brown with a good-sized head. Decent aroma, very sweet. Almost nonexistent flavor--tastes a bit like sugar water. If you’re stuck with some of these, drink them straight from the bottle--they’re a little more bearable that way.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Real malty brown sugar, maple syrup, and chocolate aroma. Real dark brown with a little red when held to the light. Insignificant white head. Light malt up front increases in the finish. Most of the flavor in the finish which consists of chocolate, roastiness, light nuttiness, light brown sugar, and very little hops. Nice balance of flavors in the finish. While this brewery hasn’t produced any samples that are jaw dropping, they are vastly underated on this site based on overall scores.
