JohnCook101 (535) - - MAR 30, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear straw colour with a small head. Light aroma with a fruit and, some grass and a metallic tint. Fairly sweet to taste, light malt and some fruit - a little apple. The hops are there but pretty hidden. Could do with a little tartness to balance the sweetness, but pretty decent.

allmyvinyl (9969) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 12, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours clear golden with a short-lived thin white head. Aromas of buttery malt, faint maple syrup. Taste has the lightest hint of citrus hops, more sweet butteriness. Watery finish. Forgettable.

Bottle shared. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is buttery creamy caramel malt, light citrus hop. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a light, fresh, slightly watery, light floral hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

sound67 (731) - Offenbach, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2015
[International Beer Festival, Burton-on-Trent, 2015] - Joseph Holt Brewery Maple Gold, 4.3% (Flasche). Krftig bernsteinfarben klar. Tatschlich so etwas Ahornsirup im Aroma dazu eine ganz leichte florale Note. Krftiger Krper, kaum wassrig. Im Antrunk wiederum Ahornsirup, aber zuerst trocken, rasch slicher werdend. Kaum floral. Zur Mitte bestimmt der sliche Ahorn den Gesamteindruck, in den Abgang hinein kommt eine hopfenbittere Note dazu. Kohlensure in der Flasche insgesamt stark. Nachhall moderat bitter. Wie ein Pilsener mit schwach gestem Ahornsirup.

johndoughty (5204) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle ( Clear ) Orange with a small head.Slightly fruity with a bitter finish. More flavours developed the longer I drank for. Definitely a slow burner.

gegwilson (3588) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle from B&M Stockton. Golden ale with small white head. Quite sweet and a bit too carbonated. Not much flavour really. A touch of malt, but this is pretty bland stuff.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2013
Bottled 20/09/13. A golden coloured beer with a white head. A sweet beer which presumably is down to the maple. Obvious pasteurization. It has a reasonable depth of flavour but its not my thing.

500ml bottle. Pours dark gold with a small head. Aroma is sweet with honey and straw. Taste is very sweet, honey malt and sweet apple on the finish.
