A medium brown colour with a firm cap of head.
Smell has a distinct maple syrup character, a touch of sweetness, nutty,
Taste is a nutty, blandly malty start, lemony some rough edges, ending with a maple character and slight metallic hint.
Feel is light with a heavy carbonation, sharp and a bit watery. Maple character comes through weakly.
The maple character is the unique feature in this session ale, unfortunate the beer itself doesn't do the best job of acting as a showcase for it. Flavourful base, hops are mostly earthy uk varieties. Not a terrible beer, just not a great style, watery, and some cheap hallmarks in the feel. Not particularly interesting or balanced.
