Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Darker brown in color with an off white head. Almost no lacing.

Smell: Roatsed malts, hops and carmel. Very faint sweetness and alcohol.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Medium bodied, smooth but thick. Taste has some nutty quailities, malts, and carmel. Faint hops. The brewer claims that it is brewed with maple syrup, but I do not taste that fresh maple syrup taste(true syrup, not the sugared up store bought crap).

Overall: Decent brew, I belive that the nutty characteristics of the beer reflect the maple syrup, making for a more subtle flavor. I would have this one again.

From the 12 oz. bottle no. 083112-2393. Sampled on October 3, 2012.

It pours an attractive looking medium to dark amber-mahogany brown with a thin but long lasting head.

The aroma is not extraordinary but it does bring out some light nutty characters with a clean, crisp hoppy note.

The body is medium and kind of smooth.

The taste has the slightest bite right away with a nutty, albeit soapy malt character at first that perks up a tad with the slow hop finish. Pretty easy drinking.

I picked this up at Wegman's enjoyed chilled from a mug.

The color is deep bronze with a light parchment colored cap with 2 fingers depth. The bead is fine and retention is very good. The smell is pleasant with toasted grain and light herbal notes with slight vegetal tinge and hint of fruit with mild caramel element in the nose. The feel is thin, but not overly so considering the strength - more of a dry aspect than lack of depth with moderately high carbonation and gentle grainy textures.

The flavor is good with nice toasted grain and honey type sweetness with a light herbal element with nice caramel and light corn pop elements with slight biscuit in the finish. Overall I enjoyed this and would get it again, it has nice flavor and is pretty drinkable considering the low abv and I like the honey in this as it adds to the dry body.
