3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

The rare brown that really didnít work for me. Taste isnít bad but the aroma as weak and the finish is quite thin.

Draft at Rattle n Hum West with Brendan. Pours a deep wine red body with thin white lacing. Nose is old wet dog and grains. Mouthfeel is sweet sugar, caramel, malt, prickly hop and raisin bread. Not a big fan of this offering.

Draft @ Rattle West w James. Medium mouthfeel encompasses a taste of semi-sweet nuts. Not too overpowering. Nice.

Pours a hazy brown Amber with a frothy tan head. Aroma of dark syrup. Taste is robust and sweet with a drying bitterness in the finish.

Pours a deep mahogany withe an off white head which lingers a bit.....aroma of nut, malt, slight caramel......taste is thin, heading toward sour......may have an entire bad case of beer.....second on in the case which tastes off.

Thank you Lorene and John!
Cloudy brown pour, minimal head, nutty aroma, short of flavor. This was thin, light and fizzy.
I look at everything though...I like the label!

Clear mahogany, light tan head. Strong honey, a bit of light grassiness. Light sweetness. Light body, a decent amount of carbonation. Longer finish. Not bad at all.

Hmm...well, Iíll say that it sucks to start. Not as fizzy as some other Arcadias Iíve tried, which is a plus. Though still highly carbonated. Taste is unpleasant bitter, almost no malty roasted sweetness that youíd expect, and a chemical/metal aftertaste. Just nasty.

This brown ale poured a dark amber colour with a minimal tan coloured head. Scents include ripe fruit and caramel. First swig was Nice with medium carbonation and flavours of lightly roasted malt, caramel and a light hop flavour. A .little watery but still has good flavour. Finish is roasty but not too much. With a nice light hop.
