COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Arcadia introduces the newest addition to its stable of world class British-style ales. Brewed with the legendary Maris Otter Malt from Scotland, this beer is full-bodied and brings a taste of sweet caramel together with a hint of toasted malt that's well balenced with a solid presence of premium American aromatic flower leaf hops. From the package: "Then let us toast John Barleycorn, Each man a glass in hand; And may his great posterity ne'er fail in old Scotland!"

Arcadia Amber Ale 12 oz bottle Unknown bottling (notched E and G), reddened 02/07. Medium pour in a tulip glass Poured amber with an average fizzy off-white mostly diminishing head. Smelt of moderate sweat and caramel and of light dark bread. Taste was upfront moderately bitter sweet and sour orange and caramel and light toasted bread followed by a strong bitter perfume and herbs hops characteristics with a moderate sweet caramel orange on an average length finish. Palate was light to medium bodied, watery, lively carbonated and lightly astringent Overall, an interesting British style amber. It could use a tinge more malt flavor in my opinion. A bit disappointing for an Arcadia product.

On tap at the Muddy Pig. Copper colored pour with a general wheat bread crust quality and little else. Mildly hoppy and floral, quite metallic. Reasonable.

sfontain (790) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Single bottle from Wine Vault, Columbus, OH. Snifter. Pours a barely murky amber with a beautiful, frothy, off-white head; head is easily revived with swirling. Aroma is sour and astringent and citrusy with a really sharp sweetness like an apple lollipop; caramel; light, bitter hops through the finish. Flavor is sour, sort of tangy, and exhibits lots of malt and caramel; dry, alcohol-laden, tart finish. Medium-thick, frothy, and sticky body. I would have guessed this bottle was past its prime, but since the preceding rater says many of the same things as me, I suspect this is what the beer is supposed to be like, unless we both got bottles from the same bad batch. Itís extremely rare that I do this, but some of this beer is going down the drain.

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - JAN 11, 2007
decants a rather fizzy, lightly-hazed orange-blushed amber, with a big off-white head that retains well and leaves good lace. nose is a bit problematic. something of a soapy/detergent smell up front, with some tart fruit notes on the side. it tastes worse than it smells. I think this one is starting to go. very dry, somewhat tart...given time, I think this is on the way to malt vinegar. well, Iím assuming this one has a problem. Iíll be happy to give it another go íround - but this one is going down the drain.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 3, 2007
The pour reveals a cloudy amber color with a thin creamy white head. Aroma and flavor of citrusy hops and caramel. The body is light with an oily texture and soft carbonation.

theisti (3175) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - DEC 26, 2006
Bottle - Arcadia sampler pack. Pour is amber, with a slight orange to it. Big head, decent lacing for an amber ale. Taste is malty, with OK body. Picked up on the slightest sour (orange peel?) taste. Overall, pretty ordinary.

DrnkMcDermott (2776) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2006
Sampler glass.Rating #994! I said in my previous rating of their Anglerís Ale that it might be great on caskÖ then the next beer was on cask! Gives it a nice creamy, smooth head. Very low carbonation, almost still. Color is on the dark side of the amber scale. Nice mouthfeel, texture of a nitro oatmeal stout. Slippery smooth.

patrick767 (3524) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 26, 2006
draft sampler at the brewpub - Pours light amber with a nice head that hangs around awhile. A light malty aroma leads into a flavor to match. Crisp and smooth, but a little too thin, this easy to drink session brew could use something more.

thedm (4920) - Fort Wayne, USA - NOV 18, 2006
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a extremely large sized head of all foam finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a very hazy no visible carbonation dark orange brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malty dough and caramel malt. The crisp and clean mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mediumly tingly finish with a medium vinous aftertaste. The good flavor contained notes of malt hops and caramel. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.
