Nice smooth brown ale. Easy to drink. A little thin but satisfying for a fall afternoon. Pours dark brown with a little head. Smells nutty but taste is better. Maple syrup is not obvious at all. I wish it gave it some more character. Otherwise a little plain. Not bad but not one I will seek out again.

A: Pours a brownish mahogany color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap

S: A little maple sweetness up front along with some heaftier malt and grain. Very malt forward

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a good helping of lightly toasted malt and grains and then picks up some mild maple and brown sugar sweetness. Finishes with lingering grain notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid brown ale that is nice for the harvest season. Easy to drink, too

L: Deep brown with tan lacing.
S: Unimposing malt, earthy, caramel, and maple notes.
T: Gentle malt sweetness empowered by caramel and maple. Nutty, earthy, coffee flavors behind.
F: Extremely light. High carbonation.
O: The mouthfeel is too light, the flavors aren't strong enough and end up muddied. Despite the maple flavor branding, it barely displays any maple flavor. It certainly isn't offensive, but it leaves you wanting more from it instead of more of it.

A: dark murky brown color with dark ruby red notes. Thin tan head

S: roasted malts, and oak. Coffee beans, and hazelnuts. Smells quite roast

T: follows the nose. Hazelnuts and roasted malts. Caramel and cola, with some sweet malts to close. A bit thin in flavor

M: thin, light mouthfeel with medium carbonation

O: thin, almost watery beer. Has some nice flavors in the background, but not anything impressive

Fantastic! A nice dark brown ale. Roasted malt aroma. Big coffee flavor with hints of maple and brown sugar. Smooth. Not too heavy. I could drink this for breakfast.

Bottled on 7/10/18

Pours a light, earthy brown with an off-white head just shy of finger-length; recedes fairly quickly and leaves minimal lacing behind.

Aromas of roasty malts complimented with light notes of maple and vanilla; hints of bitter chocolate spread occasionally throughout the bouquet.

Taste brings lightly bitter, toasty malts and unfortunately not much else, as the profile thins significantly; hints of syrupy notes trying to push through, but lacking the character to have any impact.

Mouthfeel stays on the thinner side, but its light body saves it from being watery; inoffensive, if not slightly too weak for my liking.

Promising aroma let down by a watery profile that didn't really register much aside from some basic malty notes; pretty disappointing.

From a 12-oz. bottle poured heavily into a 16-oz. mug creates a ½ finger sizes beige head that is short lived with little lacing.
Clear mahogany brown, looks dark amber in front of light.
Faint smells of coffee, sweet malt and maple syrup.
Taste follows the smell with the addition of roasted malt and a piney hop bitterness. Semi sweet finish.
Even medium body with below average CO2 and a clean finish.
Lots of coffee in the smell and taste, smooth drinker with faint alcohol. Light on the hops, very English.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

12 Oz Bottle poured into glass
Look - deep reddish brown with only a small foam head and minimal lacing
Smell - almost non-existent. Just some sweetness, not much there.
Taste - Rich charred and even burnt malt with caramel, maple syrup, and dark chocolate notes. Fairly sweet as it typical with brown ales. The roasted malt lingers and forges with the roasted nut flavor. Medium-low carbonation. Medium-heavy body.

Overall, a very tasty beer. Not my favorite brown ale but it has lots of flavor and i enjoyed it
Give it a grade of A-
