Red Maple Premium Lager is made using amber maple syrup from St. Joe Island producers. Its’ characteristic maple flavour gently balances the natural bitterness created by the blend of imported hops. When combined with premium black roasted barley malt, and pure Pre-Cambrian Shield waters of Lake Superior, the result is an uncommonly smooth beer.

    Where is maple in this beer? If you like maple taste you definitely need to buy la schoune a l'érable a Québec beer from St-Polycarpe...This being said it's not all bad nice tawny colour with good head,definitely malty and not enough hopps for my taste ... This is average beer.

    This maple premium lager pours a deep red and brown caramel colour. Lacing is left, so is a coating on the brew. The nose is mainly malt. Good creamy smooth mouthfeel. Taste is malty as well for the beginning, then hits a grain finish with hints of apple. Hardly any sign of maple in this one, just slight sweetness. If you are looking for a maple beer, be sure to check out Schoune à l'érable. Still a good premium amber lager.

    The 341ML bottle put a beautiful looking reddish dark copper lager in my glass. Nice sand color tight cap with fair retention and lacing on the glass. As soon as I poured the beer a fair aroma of roasty malt was filling the area...up close though, the aroma is more subtle and layered...you get some light spicey sweetness mingling with some herbal-grassy tones...much better than I expected. The mouth feel is slightly creamy but on the thin side with a fair malt pronouncement defined by light tastey toasty biscuity caramel malt, then the hops show up with that herbal definition characteristic of Hersbrucker and tettnanger varieties..however the edge is taken off these with a spicy maple sort of decernment that is really detectable in the finish. This is a fair micro lager with many good characteristics and good drinkability but I wish it was a bit firmer in body an not as thin...then again I'm a malt head and think most domestic micros don't have enough malt for my taste. Still, a very tastey and refreshing lager.

    A unique idea that's destictively Canadian. They dropped the ball on this one. Dark colour and pretty label raises your hopes, only to be dashed when choking down this foul sewer water. Over carbonated with a harsh fake maple-like taste that's chemically (if that's a word this stuff is it's namesake).I gave it a second chance days later, no change.
