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).

On tap at the brewery. Pours amber hue with off-white head. Aroma is of caramel, apples and hint of maple syrup. Body is medium, creamy and smooth. Taste is of caramel, maple syrup and hint of herbal hops. Finish is long and semi-dry. Interesting brew.
