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.

Pours a red amber with a few fingers of light caramel colored foam. Aroma is sweetish, with bready pale malts and light toffee/brown sugar coming to the fore along with a touch of sour fruit. Not a lot of maple. Palate is mild, mellow, and smooth, less aggressive than the aroma. There is a pronounced apple flavor along with a whiff of citrus and some herbal notes from the hops I assume, an unassuming caramel sweetness, biscuit, and hints of cardboard and booze. There are flaws but overall drinkable if overrated in my immediate circle (you know who you are).
