3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft Sample at MBG Winterfest 2010. Poured reddish brown with an average frothy off-white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet bitter flavor with a sweet finish of moderate duration. This beer would go well with spicy food.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed on tap at the Bottom Lounge in Chicago, IL prior to going to a Blackhawks game with a bunch of friends. Appearance not too sure, in a dark bar but it looks red with a thin but pronounced off white head. Aroma rich in hops with a nice malt balance. Taste very smooth, abundant in stinky hops, also a bit of citrus with a rich malt backing. Real nice.

Pretty standard red ale here. Arcadia is very much hit or miss for me. I would take this over a Sam Adams, but that is about it.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a clear red with no head. Not much of an aroma. Mouth feel is rather light. Tastes a bit sweet with a large amount of hops for the style. I get toasted malts and some burnt grains. I think it is the hops that are just a bit off.
