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.

Bitter, bitter, bitter. No likey. No maple flavor either. None, just hops. Yech.

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.

White head over an amber body.

Smells of brown and biscuit malts, hoppy.

Expecting maple but not the case, again, pretty hoppy. Very, very subtly citrus sweet. Maple may be buried under there... or I'm just imagining it. If I didn't know better I'd call this a particularly weak red IPA. Inoffensive but not what I want for a fall brew.

Carbonation's right for an amber.
