3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mild nutty aroma, pours a reddish-brown with a thin white head. There’s a touch of roasted notes and a bit of sweetness, the alcohol is noticeable in this beer, which is surprising considering the low ABV. It’s light on the palate, and drinkable... but there are much better Brown ales out there.

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!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle. Sweet and airy, very sweet with red berry/fruit and mineral character, nuttiness; pours pale chestnut with lots of carbonation and a huge beige head. Taste is, well, past its prime, airy and lightly tart, overcarbed and quite possibly infected, nuts and light roast under metal and berry, loght cherry. Very low bitterness, very sweet but not cloying.

Draft at Milk Boy. Cloudy brown pour with some off-white foam. Walnuts. Bitter caramel. Slightly acetic blacked oranged notes. Bit bizarre. Nutty certainly.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle. Dark brown pour, quickly receding head. The smell is light and malty, hints of caramel and nuts, but mostly english yeast character. Flavor is fuller, it has dark fruits, light nuttiness, really easy to drink. The beer is just too subdued, a good beer to hand someone who claims they don’t like dark beer.
