"A nice hearty fall meal. I liked the flavor of the beer and the maple - it gave it a slightly sweet flavor. I did cook it down longer than suggested (about 65 minutes), so it was the thickness I lik..." See moreed. After the 45 minutes suggested, it was more like a soup. "
"We are lentil lovers in our house so I was looking forward to trying this soup with a twist. It really was very good and a good alternative to a classic German Lentil soup. The 4 star rating is becaus..." See moree, the beer I used was a bit too bitter and the next time I will choose another brand. I also suggest to cook up a bit more bacon so you have some to crumble on top when serving. I served it with homemade cornbread which really complimented it well. This is a soup that will help us get through the cold winter!"
