Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
BigLeaf Maple Autumn Red is a quaffable, well-balanced red ale with character. Its malty complexity and coppery color come from a combination of two caramel malts, pale malt, and a hint of maple syrup. To complement these flavors, we used three additions of Nelson Sauvin hops in the brewkettle and a unique blend of Nelson Sauvin, Citra, and Cascade for dry hopping. The result is a distinctive fall seasonal with extraordinary depth and intriguing aroma.

Unknown vintage; drank 9/27/14 @ the Yarchives.

Poured from the bottle into a glass.

Semi-opaque orange/red hue.

HUGE cream head; strong lace.

Herbal Essence shampoo & a hint of honeyed grain notes on the nose. Not appealing.

Medium mouthfeel.

Herbal Essence shampoo up front; pickle juice finish. Cigarette ash as it warms. Nearly undrinkable.

Poured into a Belgian style glass. First I notice how beautiful of a color it is regardless of the tiny amount of foam. Second impressions are that it has a clean crisp maple smell complimented by rather harsh metallic nails-dipped-in-syrup taste. Its of medium viscosity giving it an average mouthfeel. The aftertaste is that of rusty maple bark.

-Sweetness like syrup, rind, grain
-clean grains but heavy sharp bitter rind
-Bitter and silky, somewhat thin
