From 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.
