12oz bottle from Lukas Liquor. Pours clear copper with nice one finger off-white head. Aroma is sweet malt, light caramel and some spices.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle Pours a dark slightly hazy amber/brown with only a minimal off-white head that lingers nicely. Lacing is sparse and chunky. Aroma mostly of dark malts, and caramel. Flavor is malt and nuts but kind of thin. Just has that mass-produced taste. Carbonation is quite soft. Easy on the hops and the finish is lacking bitterness but a woody earthen taste is there.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy copper color wtih a medium frothy white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is sweet fruit with raisin and light hops. Decent lacing on the glass. The taste is a sweet roasted malt with caramel and a spicy finish. A good amber ale from Widmer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Maple malty aroma. Dark orange in color, with more than typical carbonation for an ale. Some resiny hop sweetness and leafiness. Flavor continues sweet malt backdrop and mild hop accents. Some alcohol burn and ’’choke’’ present but I think it adds to the character rather than detracts. Beer is filling and warming.
