Notes/Commercial Description:
BigLeaf Maple Autumn Red is a quaffable, well-balanced red ale with character. Its malty complexity and coppery color come from a combination of two caramel malts, pale malt, and a hint of maple syrup. To complement these flavors, we used three additions of Nelson Sauvin hops in the brewkettle and a unique blend of Nelson Sauvin, Citra, and Cascade for dry hopping. The result is a distinctive fall seasonal with extraordinary depth and intriguing aroma.

This pours a lovely red with a 2 finger head of foam.

It smells balanced. Nice hoppy aromas with ample malt backing it up.

Taste wise, it's not as balanced as the smell as the bitter hops are very assertive. I do have to say the malt is well done and I do get hints of maple.

A very pleasurable mouthfeel.

This is a solid brew for the autumn season and it's very easy to drink.

12 oz bottle, marked 3LQ, served in lager glass.

Looks great: deep red-amber (light copper) body with a large semi-creamy, light tan head that leaves plenty of lacing and has very good retention. High clarity with fine-grained carbonation bubbling.

Aroma: surprisingly sharp and strong hop note, considering the style. Sweet caramel with a hint of maple.

Flavor: odd sweet-bitter balance that seems to swing back and forth from bitter to sweet but is overall mildly bitter. Decent malt complexity. Unfortunately, only a faint hint of maple syrup.

Feel: Medium-full with excellent, soft carbonation. Very creamy for style.

12oz brown bottle with a freshness code.

Amber hue, slightly hazed with a tiny bubbled sudsy lacing that sticks around for a while. Soft resiny hops, hint of maple, toasted bread, light stone fruit, and some earthiness in the nose. Smooth, toasted maltiness, orangey hops, hint of maple, mild peppery hop bitterness, bread crust, semi-dry finish with toasted grain, hop resin and faint maple in the end.

A fine fall time brew here, well balanced and easy to drink. Could certainly go for more than one.
