3.78/5 rDev +2.2%
341ml bottle, sold in 4-packs in Alberta.
This beer pours a crystal clear, medium copper amber hue, with two fingers of puffy, shiny, and creamy beige head, which leaves a few instances of remote coral islet lace around the glass as things slowly abate.
It smells of semi-sweet biscuity caramel malt, woody maple syrup, a bit of fig and date dark fruitiness, and musty, earthy hops. The taste is pretty much in line with the aroma - sweet, kind of bready caramel malt, a touch of toffee pudding, a fairly dry-seeming maple sap character, more fig-like black fruit, and weakening earthy, somewhat leafy hops.
The bubbles are moderate in strength, and a bit tight beyond their basic frothiness, the body a decent medium weight, and generally smooth, with a suggestion of an echo of creaminess. It finishes off-dry, the caramel malt more culpable for the lingering sweetness than any loitering maple tree notes.
A pleasant enough maple beer, the guest ingredient let free to be its more or less natural self, on top of a pretty solid amber ale. The combined sugary essences might limit me to just the one for now, but I'm pretty sure I'll return to this soon enough.

3.84/5 rDev +3.8%
Draft: Poured an amber color ale with a small foamy head with light retention and no lacing. Aroma consists of woody notes with maple notes with light dry caramel notes. Taste is also a very nice mix of dry caramel malt with some woody notes and some clear maple notes. Body is light with medium carbonation. I am usually not a fan of maple beer but I must admit that this one is quite good.

3.61/5 rDev -2.4%
Appearance: It has a nice deep copper/amber color to it. It has a nice creamy beige head that dies down moderately and leaves little lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of maple syrup, caramel, slight toffee and biscuity/nutty malts.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has some sweet maple syrup, caramel/toffee, biscuity malts and a slight breadiness.
Mouthfeel: It has a med/high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel although it is somewhat light.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with decent flavors and aromas.
