COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copper amber in color, this medium bodied ale has a great balanced flavor. A fruity spicy hop finish compliments in malty caramel taste. Think of English pale ale dry hopped with German Tettnang hops. This ale was made to sustain you during the long New England winter.

Aroma is claimed to be fairly exotic, but to me it just smells like caramel malt and mild hopping. Clear amber color. Semi-sweet pale ale like flavor for the most part, but yeah there is some funky eurohop thing going as well. Very smooth and refreshing, which is not expected from initial impressions. Sort an answer to an unasked question.

Draft at Champions in Springfield. Pours a cloudy amber with thin beige head and some spots of lace. Nose of sweat socks, sour cream, some caramel, light grass. Undrinkable. I doubt it is the beer but rather absolutely filthy tap lines since beers my friends ordered on draft were also undrinkable. I won’t kill them on the rating because I’m sure it taste better than this at a better establishment.

Draught. This is a boring old EPA without out much to make it worth the up pricing from a macro.

Slipstream (2022) - USA - MAY 12, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2013 One of the pleasures of visiting western Mass. is being able to drink a few BBC releases. Cabin Fever has a somewhat complex aroma - sharp and metallic, with some sweet, funky hop notes too. It tastes smooth, malty, and on the sweet side, a biscuit-like flavor to it, with a noticeable German and English influence, like the description says. Good stuff.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear garnet tinged amber with a thin white head. A bit of plum and sweet malt on the nose, toast, caramel. Medium bodied, malty and toasty. Not a ton going on but I don’t think there’s supposed to be. Easy drinking, inoffensive. Unremarkable in any great or terrible ways, just a middle of the road easy drinking beer. Tasty enough.

crazyvin (1937) - New York, USA - FEB 3, 2013
A slightly cloudy medium brown body. A fast fading off white head, no retention. A fruity aroma seemed to dominate the aroma. Flavor was too fruity too. Some caramel malts but not enough to balance out the fruity flavor. May have been a bad bottle.

Caramel colored pour, white head. Flavor is caramel, earthy hops, some roasted nuts, bread.

AirForceHops (3174) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 6, 2013
22oz. bottle purchased at Julio’s liquors. Best before 06/06/2013. Color is amber with a thin white head. Nose is the Berkshire house yeast with light caramel malt. The taste was lightly sweet and featured a mixture of caramel and a bit of bitter hops. German or European hops is what it reminds me of. Lighter side of medium in body. Decent brew.

On tap in a plastic cup. Pours amber with a light beige head. Aroma of caramel and a little toffee from the malts plus some dough and floral hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent amber ale.

Tap pours orange copper with little of white head. The aroma is light of toasted grain, mostly bready. The flavor is smooth grain and earthy German hops with a light fruity green apple crisp drying finish. Not bad, mostly simple.
