Not the best Maui Brewing has produced. It has a light brown appearance with a small lighter brown head and right amount of carbonation. This beer has a very mild flavor or perhaps very little flavor at all.

On-tap 6/24/2016 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a short off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains maple, caramelized malts and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with hearty malt character. Then some mildly sweet flavors of maple and caramel come in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a decent beer to drink for while but there are better choices within the style.

16oz glass at Beer Revolution - missed their Maui Brewing tap takeover last summer, but I'll happily take the leftovers now.

This beer appears a clear, dark orange-brick amber colour, with two skinny fingers of puffy, mildly foamy, and kind of creamy off-white head, which leaves some decent tropical island grotto lace around the glass as things quickly dissolve.

It smells of bready, doughy caramel malt, some semi-sweet, indistinct nuttiness, faint cafe-au-lait, a bit of black orchard fruitiness, and plain earthy, weedy, and leafy hops. The taste is rather sweet biscuity caramel nougat malt, a candied holiday nutty character, bittersweet chocolate, fading fruity esters, and still understated earthy and leafy hop bitters.

The carbonation is quite soft and generally supportive in its fleeting frothiness, the body a solid medium weight, and mostly smooth, but for a wee clamminess that builds as the ambient temperature rises. It finishes well off-dry, the caramel, sweet cocoa, and nuttiness lingering like they run an after-hours club.

I gotta say, this is one well-structured American brown ale, but not in the typical hopped-up sense - here, it's all about the malt in its various incarnations. That's not to say that it isn't balanced, but more of a flavourful ode to the grain and all it can do for you.
