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

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.

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.

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.

Well, I was expecting the taste of "pure maple syrup" as it says on the label. Some of it showed up, but it was accompanied by that hooligan - Sourness. The only other notable characteristic was the sticky finish at the back. Unimpressive.

Hmm... So far out of the three beers sampled from a sampler 6 pack from this brewery, I can't say that I'm all that impressed. The aroma is light with just the slightest hint of Maple syrup (Remember the name of this beer is MAPLE NUT BROWN). The apperance is a deep ruby/browish color with almost no head, reminds me of a cola. The flavor is light and watery, again just the slightest hint of maple syrup, and again reminds me of a flat cola... The beer is smooth, but overall not that impressive. I think this brewery must be designing their beers for the non traditional beer drinkers. I'm not a big fan yet, however still have three more to go.

Very light, very watery, and very low on taste. Incredible sour flavor. One bottle is enough.
