based on the reviews below, the most recent batch is different from previous batches. appearance is an almost transparent golden amber/brown with an off white head, no lacing. maple sugar, caramel, toffee, nuttyness on the nose. taste follows nicely, caramel/toffee sweetness, some sappy maple, woody notes as well as a touch of the hops coming through. mouthfeel is on the light side of medium, but coats nicely and displays the flavors well. all and all this is the stickiest sweetest maple tasting beer ive tried.
