A - Pours a clear amber with two finger creamy off white head. Light amount of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is caramel, biscuit and light earthy hops.

T - The taste follows the aroma. Caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit and light earthy hops.

M - Medium body with low carbonation. Soft mouthfeel with a crisp dry finish.

O - A very drinkable amber. Nothing spectacular but I wouldn't turn it down if offered.

Poured from can to pint glass. Hazy amber liquid with a fingernail width of white foam. No lacing gets left behind. Bills itself as an "Octoberfest style ale" and it shows. Caramel, biscuit, and toffee show up, as well as grassy, herbal, and fruity notes as well. Probably not going to seek this one out again, but wouldn't turn it down if offered.

Semi cloudy - amber maple syrup color with a decent off white head that lasts quite awhile. There's some VERY slight lacing and the smell is almost non-existent. I noticed that the flavor has hints of apple and a light after taste of hops. Over this is a pretty good beer!

A - Murky amber with a head that dissolves quickly. Spotty lacing.

S - Caramel, lots of maple, and a touch of molasses.

T - A bit on the sweet maple side with caramel and maybe some slight citrus. Some hops but I would recommend that they use 25% more on the next batch.

O - If you like a sweet maple brew, this is for you. I won't be getting this again this year but will check it out in 2017.

Flight at brewery. As mentioned earlier, difficult to tell from their brown ale. All had bland malt flavors, almost no aroma, watery consistency. Forgettable lot of beers.

Flat and bland. Looks great though, for what it's worth.

Pours with no head whatsoever. Undistinguished flavor with forgettable characteristics.
