Anchor BigLeaf Maple Autumn Red

Anchor BigLeaf Maple Autumn RedFrom Anchor Brewing – A quaffable, well-balanced red ale with character. Its malty complexity and coppery color come from a combination of two caramel malts, pale malt, and a hint of maple syrup.

Anchor Brewing – Anchor BigLeaf Maple Autumn Red – 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. 6% abv.
Appearance:  Pours amber with a dense khaki head.

Aroma:  Fresh citrusy hop nose. Sweet smell of baked honey wheat bread.

Taste:  Fresh hops. Cascade like. Toasty malt. Finishes pleasantly bitter.

Mouthfeel:  Full bodied. Average carbonation. Smooth finish.

Overall:  This exceeded my expectations. It’s a clean, simple malty beer with some nice hop aroma and bite. I was scared it would have lots of maple going on, and fortunately for me, not the case.
