3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours dark amber brown with a light biege head. Aroma of nutty malts and ale esters. Lighter side of medium bodied with average carbonation, and perhaps a little thin on texture. Flavor of caramal, mild cocoa powder, and nutty malts. Average sweetness with a hint of maple. Watery and wet grain finish, and lacks some hop bitterness to bring it into balance. Nothing too exciting here, but drinkable

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle. Pours a clear, thin looking, pale brown with a creamy 1 finger head. Aroma is fairly mild, some mild caramel and maple notes. Taste is a touch of weak coffee, milk chocolate, slightly burned extract, and maybe a touch of maple. There is also a slightly off sweet/tang flavor. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Not bad, but not memorable either.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A- Malty, real maple syrup, caramel, nutty.
A- Copper color, clear liquid, quickly fading brown head.
T- Malty, subtle maple syrup, caramel, bready.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish.
O- Not too shabby. I could actually smell and sort of taste the maple syrup. I am not a brown ale fan but this one was alright. Could benefit from more of a nutty taste and a tab more maple on the palate otherwise good.
