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.

Old copper pour with a 3 finger, fluffy beige head. Aroma of caramel, a little nutty toffee, a hint of sweet woodiness, toast and a little grassy and planty hops. Flavor is toasty and nutty up front, then some caramel, earthy, sort of spicy wood notes that remind me more of birch beer than maple syrup, grassy, spicy and fruity floral hops, light mineral notes and a bit of tannin-ish bite to the finish. Light to medium body, oily entry, immediately knocked out by an off dry feel that leads up to a dry finish that straddles the line between astringent and pleasantly crisp. A medium strength, blanketing and lively carbonation punctuates the overall dryness. Good stuff overall, I was surprised by the dry, woody, husky grain feel of a beer with Maple and Malt mentioned so many times on the label. Good stuff overall, not great, but I feel like I might warm up to it a bit by the time I am done with the six pack.

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.

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.
