Canned 11/01/16. 8.2%

A - deep, hazy amber with about 1/2" of light tan head. Minimal lacing.

S - MAPLE! right there in your face, no surprises on that end. Slight orange scent, almost overpowered by the maple. But it's there, don't worry.

T - Maple sweetness that fades into orange bitterness. Almost no trace of alcohol. Nicely balanced.

M - This one sits right outside the door of ThickNHeavy. Creamy with medium carb.

O - I know it's kinda cliche to say this, buuuuuut...this mother seriously reminds me of my Saturday morn bfast when I was a young turd. It's nicely balanced between sweet and bitter.

This beer is absolutely unreal. If you're a fan of the Caramel Cream Ale and even the luxurious Imperial Caramel Cream Ale then this beer is FOR YOU. Assuming you like Maple Syrup and Orange of course.

I tried this beer at their taproom and was absolutely floored. It pours to be a deep dark brown and have strong scent of freshly juiced oranges with a slighty hazy sweet smell of maple.

It starts off sweet but has a small acidic orange bite at the end which makes the entire sip/gulp to be evolutionary and ultimately delectable. At one point I could close my eyes and imagine the taste of 'breakfast' the maple syrup from the pancakes with a quick swig of orange juice. It's a very modest and inquisite take of the famous alcholic shot including of Jamenson, Butterscotch Scnapps followed by a small shot of OJ.

Aroma of celery. Doesn't make sense but absolutely there. First taste was strong of maple syrup and then a strong taste of celery. Not exactly pleasant. Second taste was all celery. Third taste was creamy orange. That's where the taste kicked in. Not sure why the celery was so strong at first but now I taste a nice smooth orange cream. Solid beer. Worth a try.
