I haven't had this one in a hot minute now. The new packaging caught my eye, and I figured I'd give it a whirl again; it is nice, should've done it sooner. The brew pours a lustrous chestnut-mahogany hue, and is topped with a pillowy cap of reddish-tan froth; it is a rich and good looking brew. The nose is mellow, mostly offering sweet roast barley notes, and a bit of maple-y aroma. The flavor is just a bit sweet, and the maple is light (but present); it covers the same territory as the nose. In fact, this tastes a bit like an extremely delicious wort. Hops are present, but very light, adding perhaps a tinge of sweet floral notes. There seems to be a bit of UK ale yeast fruitiness, as well. The brew also sports a nice creamy silky body, and it is pretty much a winner all-around.

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.
