A quaffable, well-balanced red ale with character. Its malty complexity and coppery color come from a combination of two caramel malts, pale malt, and a hint of maple syrup.

Bottle from cellar served at 56F. Pours a rich copper-gold color with a thick off-white head. Head dissipates fairly quickly, but there’s very significant lacing. Aroma is full of hops on the initial smell, there’s caramel, bread, toffee underneath. Taking a drink initially puts a big burst of hop notes throughout your nose and mouth, resiny, piny and a bit of citrus (dried orange peel). There’s also a sweetness in the malt, caramel. I was expecting a bit more malt and I don’t really get any of the maple syrup that is supposed to be in there, but it’s a nice beer.

Bottle @home (rating backlog). Pours red/brown, off white head. Nose is toffee, there is some maple there as well, caramel and some biscuit notes. Taste is maple, caramel, slight burnt notes, malty.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2017 Belle couleur cuivrée bien limpide, mousse pas zuper tenace, nez très rond bien agréable avec des notes d?érable. Assez raiche sur la langue et grosse amertume en fin de bouche, bien moins ronde qu?au nez. Notes caramel assez importantes. Un peu de résineux concentré en toute fin, ainsi qu’une toute petite acidité. C?est assez particulier, pas trop fan.

Not wild on this. The sweetness of the maple doesn’t overpower, which I was weary of...but I’m not sure it entirely worked either. Cloying by the end. No crispness or bite. Perhaps one to match with food, some braised beef and winter veg or something...

Lord Quas (5) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2017 does not count
Aroma: Honey, nuts, caramel, and roasted malts. A very faint hoppy landing. smell of leaves, or maybe it’s just the label ;) Appearance: Amber with some haziness contained within. Ever so off-white head. Nice Lacing. Taste/ Palate: light, creamy, hits all the right fall notes. crisp, fresh, malty, faint spiciness with a creamy and sticky feel. Finish: A fall beer that goes down easy, and keeps things interesting at any point in a drinking sesh.

alexmate (259) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2016
Appearance: Amber with a big white head and excellent lacing that went all the way down. Nose: caramel. roasted malt and red fruits. Taste is of caramel, brown sugar, woods, malt and wheat, unfortunately the bitter hoppy aftertaste overpowered what is an interesting ale. Price Paid: £2.30.
