fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - SEP 8, 2013
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.

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 its 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 (109) - 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.

Bottle 0.355l. Lightly hazy amber body, medium yellowish head. Aroma of honey, cherries, berries, fruit stones, caramel, peaches and probably maple syrup. Taste is heavy bitter and very sweet. Caramel, toasted malts, berries, leaves, cherries. Medium to full body, high carbonation, slicky texture, long bitter aftertaste.
Great! Good choice for early autumn afternoon.

Bontus (778) - Flanders, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2016
Bottle from Dranken Geers. Pours dark amber, brown with a dense beige head. I like it and the bottle art too. Nose of cara malts and candy. Aroma is caramel and toast, lots of retronasal action. Taste is a roasted bitterness, more than I would expect from its color. Lively palate, finish is dry bitter. Hops contribute but are not in the foreground. Medium heavy body. Fits the season!
