COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This English-style brown ale has an alluring mahogany color capped by a rich foam head. It is brewed with six different varieties of premium malted barley, creating a robust body and delicious flavor profile featuring hints of chocolate, raisins, dates and almonds. Its ripe fruit notes and malty, sweet finish are counterbalanced by a subtle hop bitterness and aroma.

Brown in color, nutty aroma. Good malt taste with a caramel and nut finish. Well balanced beer. Great mouthfeel. Good interpitation of the style.

Dark walnut brown pour with quarter inch beige head. Sweet strong Carmel corn malt scent, subtle cola or licorice aroma as well. Bitter taste initially, then medium roasted carmel flavors come. Finish is sour and leaves a flavor similar to malt pancakes or waffles. Nice medium bodied brown ale, one of my favorites for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The last brew from my jaunt in MI, as well as my last for awhile... 12 oz. bottle into a tumbler it went- poured transparent light brown with an amber tint when held to a light source in color, massive off tan in color head formed and tried to keep company, but it was getting late in the night... aroma of a good size malt loaded with caramel, some nut like quality (a almond/walnut fare), and the seed of change. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt was just slightly roasted, sweetness in the middle, finish is firm and holding. Itís hard to say where Iíll be in a year, but I sure in the fuck hope itís not in Texahhtucky... this place SUCKS!!! With that being said, time to shut it down for awhile- picking apart places they love... see ya at the bar!

Aroma is fruit, malts and a hint of citrus. The flavor is fruit, malts and somewhat smooth, somewhat tart finish.

Pours a hazy brown with absolutely no head. Aroma of light roasted malts, chocolate, and light fruit. Flavor of roasted malt, light nuts, and very light hop bitterness at the finish.

Light brown. Thick head. Drinkable. Not very nutty. Hints of raisen. Average body. I expect more from Arcadia, and I expect more from nut beers.

Nephilium (1453) - Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Mild nutty aroma, pours a reddish-brown with a thin white head. Thereís a touch of roasted notes and a bit of sweetness, the alcohol is noticeable in this beer, which is surprising considering the low ABV. Itís light on the palate, and drinkable... but there are much better Brown ales out there.

Mahogany pour with a small off white head. Hints of chocolate, raisins, dark fruit. Mild bitterness on the finish. Thin bodied with good carbonation. Decent beer but I will reach for other browns next time Iím in the mood.

Almond and caramel flavor in a medium bodied brew. There was a floral smell and a bubbly palate. There was a deceptively big alcohol taste.
