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.

Pours a clear amber color with a frothy, white head that leaves chunks of lacing.

Smells of toasted malts with some earthy hops.

Tastes of the toasted malt base with a layer of earthy hops on top. Malts lead off with toasted bread, toffee, and caramel. Touches of maple come in the middle, but does not have any sweetness to it. Hops come in and add some earthy, herbal bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium-full with a slightly assertive amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is okay, but comes off pretty flat.
