Notes/Commercial Description:
A deep golden Lager brewed with imported grains and hops. The fine malty profile is accompanied by the aromatic qualities of real Vermont maple syrup, with the freshly produced syrup sourced from local farms, including a small operation owned by Matt Calcagni, our Safety Manager. The beer is rounded out with a balancing bitterness and a hint of noble aroma hops.

3.18/5  rDev -13.6%

Appearance - I'm not really familiar with bocks as a style, but it looks just like maple syrup. Spot on.

Smell - It smells like molasses or dark honey, but a little one note and flat.

Taste - Graham cracker malt flavor definitely dominates the palate, and maple sweetness is secondary. Very flavorful.

Mouthfeel - Too thin; the beer almost tastes watered-down because of it.

Overall - It's drinkable and worth trying, but too cloyingly sweet to be a session beer.

Pours into a half liter stein a deep copper/bronze with a tight fluffy white head that settles very slowly,great color to this beer.Aromas are malty sweet with caramel and faint maple,there is faint leafy hops but the sweetness is the main component.The feel is a little sharp and on the lighter side for a beer of the style in my opinion.Flavors are pretty sweet and douoghy up front but there is a decent drying leafy hopped finish.Not bad but it comes close to being to sweet...at least for my taste.

Appearance is a dark golden straw color with a finger of head that dissipated quickly. The hop notes on the nose were clearly present. I thought that this offering was overly fizzy (especially at first sip) and that detracted from the flavor experience. The finish is a combination of sweet malt and light hops. Not at all sure where the maple notes might have been, but I surely did not notice any.

Served on tap at the English cellar ale house on Thayer street in providence, ri.

A- pours a clear golden body with a small white head.

S- caramel, maple, bread, light toasted hops

T- starts off with sweet caramel, maple, buttercream, finishes slightly bitter and roasty. Sweet corn aftertaste.

M- light and easy drinking. Medium low carbonation

A surprisingly good beer. Well crafted and balanced. Worth a try.
