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

Lack. Sorry but this is just crap. No body. No presentation. Cheap crap with maple flavoring. I'll bet there's no real maple syrup in this.

Color is a deep brownish gold, very little head produced. Smell was light, slight tones of roasted nut and caramel malts, molasses and maple notes, but is faint. Taste is good, smooth roasted sweetness and caramel malty, medium to light body, slight hint of maple or molasses, maybe some vanilla, chocolate malt as well. Good nut dryness and flavor. Not bad at all, I liked it quite a bit.

Maple syrup colored, nice light-tan head that is mostly diminishing, but leaves nice lacing. Roasted malts dominate the aroma. Flavor is surprisingly sweet initially (must be the maple syrup), nutty notes present throughout, with a nice malt character that holds everything together. Mild carbonation, just the way I like it, but lacks body. Finish is moderately long lasting, turning sweet once again. Surprisingly decent offering from Tommyknocker.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - JUN 6, 2003
This brown ale poured a creamy medium tan head with small-medium bubbles. There was some carbonation observed with this ale. There was very little lacing on the sides of my glass. The body was brown in color. I thought the taste was a little tart and bitey which I did not care for at all. I could not acquire a good taste for this brew.

thedm (4927) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 6, 2003
This brew pours a small head of light brown bubbles and a semi-transparent brown body. It has a very nice semi strong malt aroma and fizzy smoky harsh taste that is a little weak. Very nutty with only a fair lacing. Strange taste in this not really to my liking.

My bottle was 2 months past the clearly labled "drink within 4 months" date. Aroma was a sweet malt, maple. It poured with a thin head that did linger for a while. Color was a dark brown, similar to root beer. Taste was chocolate, maple, malt and a bit nutty. It could use a bit more hoppiness. Nice lace. Good aftertaste - very mellow. A fairly well balanced beer. I have to disagree with the majority of the ratings on this one, but I found it to be very drinkable and I enjoyed very, very much. I will purchase this one again.

On draught. Clear reddish brown color. Thin body. Slightly sweet. Slight Nutty aroma. Maple flavors come thru as it rises to cellar temp

redlem (1301) - Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2003
Dark amber color with a medium light brown head. Nice roasted malt aroma with ....coffee? Yes I smell coffee. Taste is also like a coffee stout light, I could not taste any maple syrup. In my variety pack their amber tastes like a brown and this brown tastes like a stout. Its not bad I jsut did not care for it.

Dark brown pour with a medium tan head. Odd sweet yet sour taste. Below average.
