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.

Poured into a Belgian style glass. First I notice how beautiful of a color it is regardless of the tiny amount of foam. Second impressions are that it has a clean crisp maple smell complimented by rather harsh metallic nails-dipped-in-syrup taste. Its of medium viscosity giving it an average mouthfeel. The aftertaste is that of rusty maple bark.
