Bomber from Beer Run. Pours a clear bronze color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Nice looking beer. Aroma of maple, nuts, toffeeish malts, herbal almost tinny hops. The taste is big maple notes, nuts, apple. Very granola-ish. Some stone fruits and a bitter hop finish. Medium bodied, average carbonation, slight lingering bitterness and slight lingering sweetness. Nice beer. TheBeerGod (6261) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Bottle. Amber pour with a tall, foamy white head. Aroma is vanilla, maple syrup, caramel and sweet malt. Taste is maple syrup notes, toasted grains, sweet malt, caramel and oatmeal. Body is medium with frothy, bubbly carbonation and a light stickiness. Ends with more maple syrup, caramel, sweet malt notes and cake. GandGKevin (934) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Slight maple aromas. Maple and biscuit flavors. Finishes with all maple. Overall it’s not too bad. jtclockwork (17264) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle shared by John. Pours cloudy amber orange with off white head. Nose/taste of maple syrup, pancakes, caramel and lightly ripened fruit especially Bartlett pears. Body is on the thinner side of medium. jgb9348 (6478) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Hazy deep copper coloured body with a thick, seven centimetre tall tan head - very large, of course. Aroma of malt, raisins, grapes, yeast, nuts and a bit of caramel and maple syrup, but just sweetness in general. Medium-bodied; Strong maple flavour at first in the taste with a definite sweetness over everything else. Some malt behind with apricots, raisins and a lot of earthy nuttiness. Aftertaste almost warm (even though beer is cold) showing some good malt flavours and that sweetness that persists throughout. Overall, a bit off on the balance, but some good sweetness and a nice maple flavour work well for the style, but don’t expect a great beer stacked up against others...this is a good amber with a nice sweetness. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 18-November-2011 for US$6.49 sampled at home in Washington on 01-October-2012.

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Light maple sugar, toasted malts, and light earthy notes. Not bad. burg326 (5607) - Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Poured an amber brownish color, aromas of caramel, light maple, and some hazelnut. Not too much maple in the flavor, have to try to really find it, ok beer overall. JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Pours a mid to dark amber with light notes of grain and maple. The maple shows more precision. It finishes with lingering grains and maple sweetness. nick76 (4402) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2012
The aroma is malty and hoppy but has no maple. The appearance is amber with a smaller head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a nice beer but it’s basically maple free. Palidor19 (3193) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2012
There is hardly any maple in this beer, but the rest of the beer is very good for what it is. has a nice caramel presence with a touch of hops that are not essential but offer a great drinkable beer for the serious beer lover.
