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.

A: clear; deep amber colored; 1 finger tan head that receded slowly to a thin collar; nice lacing;

S: surprisingly hoppy for a red ale; a moment of caramel and maple, than it's all citra and cascade;

T: toffee up front, then a citrus/peach note at mod-palate; a mild astringent bitterness at the finish; never really got any maple flavor;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: after the great aroma, the flavor was a bit of a let down;

Copper or Amber color. Big, fluffy head. Caramely smell. Enjoyable malty notes with light hoppy bitterness in the taste. Surprisingly tasty. Great with food.
