This red ale brewed with maple syrup opens with aromas of sweet malt, lightly toasted bread, red plum and berry and a hint of earthy spice. Its lovely copper color, with a frothy, eggshell-hued head. The texture is smooth and slightly creamy, with medium carbonation and a touch of hop bitterness that carries through to the finish. There's not too much maple flavor, but this is balanced, refreshing and easy to drink.
