Beer Review - Picaroons Maple Cream Ale

Picaroons Traditional Ales makes this seasonal and the high cost of maple syrup makes it an expensive endeavor. It is labeled a brown cream ale that is conditioned as a lager and brewed as an ale. It weighs in at 5% ABV.

Appearance - The beer is a very deep dark copper color with a thin head almost non-existience.

Aroma - I get mostly malt with maple and sweet smelling undertones.

Taste - I got a malty taste with more maple flavor than sweetness and a pleasant dry finish.

Mouthfeel - It is a light to medium mouth feel with a decent amount of carbonization.

Overall - I really enjoyed the beer, it has a lot going on there but bottom line is a good beer
