The recipe for Bearwalker was among one of the first recipes written by Brewmaster Bailey years ago. Bearwalker is a Maple Brown and the recipe pays homage to Baileys home state of Vermont by having 100% Vermont Maple Syrup added to it. The result is a very distinctive maple syrup flavor that truly sets this beer apart and warms your belly.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2012 Draft from a fresh growler. Pours hazy amber with an ivory head. Aroma of toffee and plastic. Overattenuated, with the residual sugars pretty much gone (killing the maple), and many off favors on the finish. Tons of problems with this one. Sorry girls, I love what you two are doing with your marketing, but this was a drain pour. I hope you will consider going back to the drawing board on this one, otherwise you may have a hard time getting residual sales (no one wanted to finish this growler). Good concept, not so great results :( But I will continue to try more of your stuff as it becomes available at bars and beer stores (looking to try the Rye next). I am a firm supporter of local breweries. Just trying to provide HONEST feedback.

Pours a hazy copper brown on tap with bubbly tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of sweet maple and a hint of earth. Taste follows, actually really nice. The sweetness isnt too much, but it is there, and a nice bubbly carbonation with medium body.

Pint at Hops and Crafts. The beer is brown as expected, but almost more red. Strong maple aroma here, they werent taking the subtle approach here. The palate is sweet and full. Plenty of nutty, malty flavors with loads of maple. Its fairly one-dimensional but avoids being offensive. Recommended for maple fans.

Light maple like Torontos hockey team for the past 40 + ?? years. Brown pour with decent head. Sweet finish, hint of roast. Tap at brewpub.

Modest nose, slight lacing, good color. Sweet--the maple syrup is on the forefront, not overpowering yet very much the dominant flavor. Fades into toffee and caramel with a discernible maple back, then slides into a biscuit-like finish holding the slightest hop bite. Grows sweeter as it warms, making the maple even more pronounced. Wants to be British, but the syrup smacks of craft brew fiddlin around. Eh.

Pint on tap. Clear copper-brown with a film of bubbles. Nose is brown sugar, chocolate, toast and dry grass. Tastes of the same mix with a touch of citrus. Light-medium body has medium carbonation and is to the sweet side.

brokensail (16399) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 16, 2015
On tap @ Jackalope. Milky brownish colored beer with some off-white foam. Theres a mild maple aroma that I might not pick out unless it was suggested in the name/deScription. Plenty of toast, bread, and caramel. Sort of a caramel apple flavor. Light spicy hops, a hint of roast, and cocoa. Decently sweet. Mouthfeel is just okay.
