Pours a lovely, clear orange-amber with a modest sized but very durable tan head. Plenty of caramel malt with a hint of spicy hops. Real Vermont maple syrup is detectable in both the nose and the taste. It is slightly sweet, but has an excellent sweet/bitter/sour balance. Creamy smooth, but with enough carbonation to give it an excellent bit of liveliness too. Delicious, despite a very slight off- or sour-note in the nose and palate. dlovell2 (2236) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Copper color with white head. Floral and maple aroma. Caramel malt floral hop flavor and strong maple flavor. Smokey maple finish. Drake (14057) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 2, 2012
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. craig220 (313) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Poured a clear amber, dare I say maple, color with a decent but fast dissipating white head. Aroma is very faint maple, cinnamon, caramel, bread, and an earthiness to it. Taste is an interesting semi sweet and bitter smoothness on the tongue that rounds out to a nice maple and floral that lingers for a while. Interesting. jimhilt (2620) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Pours a three finger cream head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Nice copper amber color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Light maple nose. Flavor is maple, hints of caramel with slight bitter finish. $5.99 for a 22oz bottle from Market Basket Concord, NH.

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. puboflyons (3466) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 22, 2015
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. 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. jgb9348 (6433) - 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.
