I really like this, though it’s not what I expected it to be.
I was expecting a big round chewy beer, sweet and rich with maple syrup, but actually this is a very very pithy, bitter and dry beer with maple syrup lingering at the edges.
You find a toffee and brown bread malt and a smell that’s crunchy red leaves and autumnal woodland walks, and the hops – lemon rind, a big bunch of green herbal leaves and some gloopy pine resin – mix well with the sticky maple syrup.
But there’s not as much syrup presence as I’d imagined there would be, and the sharp finish, rounded out by alcohol warmth, is long and dry and bitter.
