Tommyknocker Maple Nut Brown Ale

I'm a big fan of maple syrup, so I couldn't resist this beer when I saw it on the store shelf. Brewed by Tommyknocker Brewery in Colorado, it's a Maple Nut Brown Ale. It poured a typical brown ale color with a miniscule white head. It had a very subtle maple flavor, or else I imagined it. It was a bit roasty, slightly sweet, and had a finish bitter enough to offset the sweet malt. I like brown ales, and this one was pretty good. Just a little more maple flavor would have made it perfect.

Are you kidding!?! This was like drinking pancakes. It was slightly carbonated, maple syrup with alcohol. Not bad for breakfast, but it makes a not-that-good beer.
