Medium colored brown. Clear. Moderate light tan colored head. Little lacing. Smell is wonderful: sweet, syrupy, light maple syrup, though its more like Aunt Jamima syrup than pure maple, but it works. However the taste is thin and bready. Maybe some caramel malt and little darker malt, but there is very little sweetness and no chocolate. Body is very thin, both for the style and the concept. Overall, an interesting, but not overly impressive beer.

Reddish brown with a thin, light tan head.

Sweet chocolate chip and sticky maple syrup aromas.

Syrup! Chocolate chips! Butter even!

This tastes exactly as advertised, to the point that I'm a little scared to know how they did this!

Poured from the growler into a tasting snifter.

I must say this beer was right up my alley. I enjoy brown ales and I'm a sucker for maple syrup. They really did a nice job blending the maple and grain to make this taste like pancakes. I didn't get much chocolate, but I'm not sure I missed it either. I'd have more if I ever get a chance.
