It pours a clear copper color leaving the same color body. A nice one inch white foamy head appears and concaves to leave some nice foamy lacing around the sides of the pint glass. The body is light enough for some carbonation to be seen rising. The smell is all about the maple up front pretty much masking everything else even after some warming, I was hoping some other possible flavors might show up, but not this time. The taste is exceptionally sweet, perhaps a bit too much maple, I wasn’t expecting this. The palate is about a medium and very smooth, possibly because of the extra maple in this beer. Overall, I really wasn’t expecting this beer to be this good. Though its more of a dessert beer because of the sweetness, I’d probably have it again. I will say its very different for the style.

Bottle, shared. Medium amber brown. Sweet and bready with a dry lightly hoppy finish. The maple syrup flavour wasn’t overwhelming, and while certainly on the sweet end, it remained decently drinkable. This was better than expected to be honest.

4 oz pour on draft at Spacebar. Clear golden amber with off-white head. Aromas of corn syrup, maple syrup. Tastes of maple syrup, brown sugar, corn syrup. Medium body with a dry finish. Like cheap corn syrup based maple syrup. reebtogi (6267) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 8, 2015
650ml bottle pours a reddish amber color with a finger of off-white head that leaves some spotted lacing behind. Aroma is dominated by maple with some herbal and caramel notes. Taste is a bold maple flavor with some herbal hop bitterness and a caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, this brew is unbalanced with too much maple, otherwise not bad for an amber ale. Quick3Beers (1233) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Pours a dark amber, almost a copper from a bottle. Aroma of cloying sweet maple syrup, almost buttery in aroma and flavor too. Rather overly sweet, which I suppose was to be expected. I’m also just not a fan of ambers. Meh.

Bottle. Reddish with a small beige head. Smells of leaves, maple. Taste is heavy maple syrup, grass, leaves. Interesting. Not sure if I like it.

From the 650 ml. bottle. 2015. batch. Handsome copper-amber pour with lingering cream colored head. There is maple syrup direct from the sap house all over the aroma with a more muted grain and oatmeal character. Medium body. Lots of maple sweetness in the taste too with a slight bitter finish. But the maple leads the way. reggiedunlop (3724) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2015
Pours a clear bright orange/golden with a thick off white head...great lacing and retention. Aroma has notes of sweet dry dry leaves...maple, honey, light toasted grain. Flavor is very sweet as well with notes of leaves, maple, earthy bitterness, and tea...fairly balanced. Mouthfeel is full and the finish lingers with tea and mild earthy bitterness. arone12 (929) - Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Pours an amber color with a nice sweet maple syrup aroma! I taste some apples and maple syrup in my mouth! Would pair very well with a bacon rich breakfast. Alas, I have no breakfast right now so the rating will reflect that. scottw86 (1177) - Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Poured a reddish color, very clear. Stable off-white head. Aroma has fruit with apples and some maple. Taste is sweet and malty with maple and more fruit. A bit too fruity. Maple doesn’t shine like I thought it would. The aftertaste is good with some maple flavors that the main taste didn’t have. Overall ok.
