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

Sure sounds good, reading the label and the commercial description. Even looks pretty good, with its dark brown pour and moderate foam. There’s a little maple in the aroma, but I can’t find much in the flavor. It’s much like an ordinary big-brewery lager, i.e., pretty plain and inoffensive. I’m taking it down one notch in the appearance department, too, for the awfully corny label artwork.

Dark brown color - very little head. Some Maple in the nose. Low carbonation. Very thin body. Overall, this beer doesn't have much flavor.

Small off-white head, dark brownish red clear body. Roasted coffee, chocolate light aroma. Sweet coffee and faux-maple taste. A little better tasting than other brews from this place, but still nothing special. It at least has a fuller body than others I've had, though not full enough.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2004 Dark reddish brown color, slight carbonation, no head. Flavor of sweet and slightly roasted malts, caramel, nuts, and maple. Kinda syrupy. Flavor was good but needed to be more pronounced. Also needs more lively carbonation.

Nice dark brown in color, with a very small head; some lacing. Sweet roasted scent, nothing new here, but it's pleasant. A bit on the sweet side in the taste, I suppose that's the maple coming in. I'm used to nut brown ales a bit more bitter. This beer's drinkable, but it's too sweet for me to consume on a regular basis. Thankfully, I got the sampler pack from Tommyknocker, so I only have one more of these.

Disappointment. Nice dark brown body with foamy tan head. Not a bit of maple, however, in the aroma or flavor. Not a bad drink but not a good one either.

Aroma is sweet and somewhat reminds me of maple candies, fittingly enough. Color is almost black, but reddish, with no head to it. Mouthfeel is somewhat gritty, but has a pleasing maple feel to it. Good aftertaste to it as well.

deep reddish/amber color, again, no head. aroma is pretty roasty, and slightly nutty. flavor is toasted malts and i dont pick up any of the maple syrup, but their the finish and aftertaste are fairly nutty..not all that bad considering the other two beers from tommyknocker i just tried.

SpringsLicker (3430) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 3, 2004
A pleasantly hopped, well balanced brown ale that finishes with hint of Maple. Too much Maple would ruin this beer, but it is just right and the hops are too. Worth trying.

Brew4Dug (139) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2004
The start is sweet with a sugary maple overtone that the label describes. However, it is only a flash of sustaining flavor. The balance finishes light and the flavor dissapates almost inststantly.
