Pours out to a thin buff head that makes an honest attempt to lace the glass. Clear brown color. Aroma is...maple with a hint of nuts and malt. Flavor is nutty, malty and slightly sweet with a crisp finish. light mouthfeel, not syrupy at all. Overall good quaff.

This is a wonderful session beer that you could gulp over and over again. The maple sweetness blends beautifully with the nutty flavor and is wonderfully drinkable. Pairs great with breakfast food or after a day of skiing or snowshoeing or around a campfire.

3.39/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint.

A: Medium brown. Pours a 1 finger, bubbly, brown head. Settles pretty quickly leaving a smattering of bubbles on the surface. Slight lacing.

S: Malt, a little oak, a little milk chocolate, butterscotch, and maple.

T: Maple sweetened malt grains. Fresh tea leaf.

M: Syrupy feel. Sweetness is kind of synthetic feeling and just off-base with the other components. Maybe a little too much... A little shallow and over carbonated feel.

D: Session.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Light bubbly head, slight lacing. Nose is malty and sweet. Malt grains, sweetened with what seems like a little too much maple. Overall, this is an okay quaff.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance - to use an analogy... looks like the last chick at the bar. At the beginning of the night, there is no way in hell. At closing time, you might as well!
Smell - I'm afraid to use the same analogy from above!
Taste - a little embarrassing, but I'll have another if there are no other options!
Feel - been there done that. Nothing knocks your socks off!
Overall - this is actually probably decent for the style, but I'm not a fan of the style, so I'm a bad judge.
