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.

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.

The rare brown that really didn’t work for me. Taste isn’t 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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

12 oz bottle, Ann Arbor, MI. Medium brown, brown sugar aroma. Mild flavour, sweet, then a light hop finish.

Hmm...well, I’ll say that it sucks to start. Not as fizzy as some other Arcadias I’ve tried, which is a plus. Though still highly carbonated. Taste is unpleasant bitter, almost no malty roasted sweetness that you’d 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.
