Bottle dated mid Nov, 2014:
The beer pours without much head, even with a good pour. However, the carbonation sustains throughout the pour, and even provides some lacing. The nose is not much, but I don't expect much from an amber. Perhaps I should expect some syrup or honey, but I only get light honey-like sweetness.

The taste gives a hint of amber, but turns to a little darker feel when the sweetness hits. Perhaps this is the influence of the maple syrup, but it turns the beer from an amber to a darker style (dunkel or wee heavy, perhaps). The feel is heavier than I expect for an amber, but isn't much more than medium.

I enjoyed this beer, perhaps because the amber ale nature didn't come through strongly. It's still a fairly neutral beer, without any strong flavors, but that seems a little darker than you might expect.

not a huge fan of this one way too over carbonated and alcohol tasting, Nosferatu by Great Lakes is a much better example of these high octane Ambers, but only available in the fall, I thin this one is a year rounder

Initially caramel flavor progresses to metallic taste and finally finishes with a slight sweetness but metallic taste persists. High alcohol content slightly apparent. Cannot taste any honey or maple syrup as advertised. Overall did not enjoy this beer.

Brewed with maple syrup and honey wish you could taste more of those flavors

Way over carbonated. I could not pour into a glass. At first I got a full glass of foam, all foam no liquid. After letting the head die after about 15 minutes I could finish the pour. The taste was okay, not too sweet but not much to speak of. I don't like the feel of over carbonation but overall it was not undrinkable just had to wait for it to die.
