look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Bomber into a rock art pint glass bought the bottle from the man himself at the warren farmer's market

A: There is a dark brown red coloring with a thin tan head i can't help but say it looks a lot like maple syrup

S: There is a wonderful smell of roasted maple goodness it is not as strong as I would like but its there with some malt in there too I think. I can smell a little bit of the alcohol which isn't a good thing but its not overpowering.

T: Well its definitely one of the sweeter beers that I have tasted its almost a weird flavor in a beer but it is maple syrup in it. Which I'm kind of disappointed about as its not a strong flavor but its definitly there. The roasted malt is there too but theres only a hint of it.

M: It is pretty thin on the outside but there is definitely a thickness too it. It is much more of a sipper then I expected it to be. It has an oiliness to it as well but is still enjoyable

O: I love Lawson's but this is not one of their best offerings, its not bad by any stretch of the imagination though. I like the flavors here, but I wish they were more robust or maybe overpowered by sweetness which isn't to say its not enjoyable, I liked it. I did not love it, worth a try in my opinion especially if you have an infinitely to maple syrup and hey he's in the middle of maple syrup country so why not do it up.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a Prohibition Pig snifter.
Pours dark amber, minimal head that dissipates.
Smells sweet, maple is prominent. Some alcohol.
Taste is inline with aroma, but a more complex maple flavor is present than what I was expecting.
Mouthfeel is nice, a smidge thicker than normal ale, I'm assuming from the maple.
Overall, a well done beer!
