Syrup grades do not indicate the quality of the syrup, but rather it's color and flavor. Lighter syrups are produced earlier in the season and have a more delicate flavor and thinner consistency. Darker syrups are produced at the end of the season and have a more concentrated, robust flavor and thicker consistency. In the end it is all about your personal preference.
The lightest of the grades, this delicate syrup is great on fruit and ice cream.

With a thicker consistency and robust flavor, this grade pairs well with oatmeal and is great on top of yogurt.
With an almost molasses like consistency, this grade is great for cooking.
