Clear, deep, reddish brown - almost like a cheap cola, with a very small offwhite head that disappears pretty quickly. Leaves pretty good lacing down the glass.

Slightly nutty, grainy, sweet malt aroma, with a little bit of fruit in the background - like a cross between a brown ale and a scotch ale. Not bad.

Very mellow version of the aroma. A balanced taste of nutty, slightly sweet malts with just the tiniest hint of maple at the back end. Nothing really jumps to the forefront, but pretty tasty.

Moderately heavy with very light carbonation - kind of feels like a scotch ale too. Not a bad feel, but not terribly refreshing or reminiscent of the style.

Not bad, I was hoping for something with a little more punch and creativity from the sound of it, and this was very subdued. But it's pretty good overall, and definitely better than the low average score I'm seeing on here I think, personally.

Good nut brown color with thin light tan collar, decent lacing. Aroma is maple sweetness, and a nutty-caramel aroma as well. Taste is also nutty, caramel with the maple taking a big presence. Thin body for a brown and low carbonation. Needs a better malt backbone and maybe some more hops both up front and at the end.

I poured this beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was a nice amber color. and poured a nice tan head. I was afraid of this one after tasting their imperial nut Brown which I did not like. This I must say is much better in my opinion and actually you can taste the beer and not the high ABV of the imperial. The beer had a nice maple taste and was really good. I will buy this one again.
