Bottle pour at the pre-FWIBF bottle share held at the Adelaide Inn in Paso Robles, CA.
Thanks to Rado for sharing this one.
2012 vintage. Bottle # 387/750.
Pours a hazy orange-brown with no head. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of malt, maple, brown sugar, caramel, and toffee aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, maple, and slight cardboard flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with a nice smell, but the flavors are slightly oxidized at this point.

bottle 1210/1500 from 2013
The beer pours a dark hazy amber (no chunks of yeast) with a thin halo of white head around the perimeter. The nose is sweet (unexpected notes of lactose-like dairy sweetness?), distinct maple and yeast, minimal alcohol, no bitterness. The taste is maple forward (as hoped) with a hint of fruit and yeast, and a slight bitterness in the finish (more woody than hoppy). The mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly syrupy (some carbonation, generous sap sweetness), but not chewy, has smooth maple goodness, masked alcohol, and a slightly dry bitterness in the finish. This beer is fantastic to drink, especially if you're a maple fan, but I'll have trouble justifying the price again in the future.

Absolutely one of the most interesting beers i've ever tried. Had the pleasure of getting the last glass on tap at the Lawson's 6th anniversary party. Ale's aren't my forte, but this takes you to another place.
A-Is maple leaf a color? If so that's what this beer is, absolutely beautiful to look at.
S- WOW, the maple is not overwhelming which I like but overall the smell was one of my favorite parts.
T- A subtle maple taste, but it has almost a maple-liquor which I hope is taken as a compliment.
M- The strong taste was a tad bit overwhelming but perfect (if that makes sense)
O-The most unique beer i've tasted to date, loved it but love everything they do at Lawson's. Another homerun by Sean!
