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.

Had on-tap at Green Dot Stables in Detroit. $3 for a 12oz mug. Hadnít had it before, so why not. Appearance: Dark, dark brown with a little, brown, creamy head. Not much lacing to be seen. A pretty average brown ale. Smell: For some reason, I didnít pull much out. Maybe my sniffer was broken. Very faint, dirty malt aroma, with maybe some traces of coffee. Almost reminiscent of a stout, but then again, I always figure brown ales are just a small step behind a stout/porter. Taste/feel: Average is as average does. It tastes like the smell... light on the aroma, light on the taste... easy drinking, but itís just a middle-of-the-road brown thatís just not that interesting. Arcadia doesnít make the best beer, but they make typical examples of styles without trying to "change the rules", so to speak.

Nice medium to dark brown color with good fluffy head that stays around for a bit. Aroma quite weak - some nutty malt and cocoa, but fainter than Iíd like - have to search around for it. Starts out bland but has a very nice toasty, nutty, cocoa finish and bready aftertaste. Pretty standard, decent example of the style. Highly drinkable.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 12/4/2012. Pours lightly hazy reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, toast, cocoa, brown bread, light nuttiness, roasted malt, and floral hop earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, toast, chocolate, dark bread, light nuttiness, roasted malt, light raisin, and floral hop earthiness. Slight earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, toast, chocolate, dark bread, light nuttiness, roasted malt, and floral earthiness on the finish for a bit. Nice balance and robustness of malty flavors; with hardly any cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy, lightly slick, and earthy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a nice brown ale. Good balance and robustness of flavors; and very smooth to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering; though not as nutty as I would expect given the nut brown title.

Pours a deep Amber brown with minimal Tan head. Aromas of vanilla, malt and very little hop. Mouthfeel is full. Taste is light malt, vanilla, with a mild, boozy finish. Pretty tame brown ale, but overall pretty nice.

Draft to taster at Arcadia. Looks solid; a semi-transparent brown with light beige lacing. Smells semi-sweet, malty, and a little nutty. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. An alright example 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!
