Sickeningly sweet smell with a flavor to match. Smooth but very little carbonation. Very sweet maple syrup taste with a tounge coating feel at the end of each sip.

Brown colored brown ale, 1/4" off white head, aroma hit some sweet, sugary, I guess syrup notes.

Taste had more sweetness going for it, but it made a mundane brown ale a little less mundane, could have had more oomph to the maple aspect instead of predominantly a sugary impact. Smooth enough. One of their better beers that stays light bodied despite its brown appearance.

Poured 12oz bottle into glass. 4.5% abv

Appearance- Pours a reddish brown with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Quite clear.

Smell- Caramel, molasses, roasted malt.

Taste- Caramel up front, with semi roasted earthy grains also. Tones of maple syrup with a nutty sweetness. Finishes roasty and dry.

Mouthfeel- Thin to medium in body with semi low carbonation.

Overall- Not bad, but essentially a typical brown ale with some slight maple flavoring. I thought the maple could of been more prominent but this was drinkable and still smooth.
