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.

Nice red ale of copper/orange color. It makes a really nice foam.
Smell is hoppy and grassy, but also sweet.
The taste is similar and you can feel quite well the malts; it's not easy to feel the maple syrup here, it's like a different kind of sweetness. Aftertaste is quite bitter, making a nice contrast.
Mouthfeel is of medium body but nice carbonation.
I wonder why this beer is just a bit cloying (and that ain't good!)
Great beer this one, wonder if Anchor could brew it with more maple syrup..
