Instead of my normal rating style, Iíll just say that this almost a carbon copy of Arrogant Bastard with some water added. Less aroma, flavor and alcohol. Same pricetag though.

Deep amber color with a thick head and good lace. Grainy malt flavor with hoppy accents. Slightly sweet and hoppy flavor with a grainy finish. Medium bodied and a touch dry.

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.

Bottle at Nateís Leaving Do care of Leighton. Colours clear chestnut brown. Nose is sour. Unfortunately itís a touch infected. Nose is wild yeast, grainy malt husk underneath. Taste is the same. Like a Belgian bruin. Not that unpleasant but not what was intended.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle, pours a nice ruby amber with a medium light tan head. Aroma is sweet and slightly sour biscuit malt and lots of dry hop character. Flavor is a great balance of bread, rye, and doughy malts, with a nice punch of hops that complement the malt but donít overpower. The malt character lingers while the hops mildly dry the tongue. Nice beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark amber color with a decent cream head. Aroma is a little sweet with some dustiness. Flavor is almost old, nothing fresh about it. Kinda heavy and bland.

Citrus hops out power the malts in this one but not by much. Cloudy dark orange color with a small whitish head. Tangy malt start finishing with a light citrus hop flavor.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz. bomber: This one opens with a loud pffft. It poured an fairly clear amber color. Suprisingly little head and about no carbonation. The aroma is quite mild. It is malty sweet, with some hints of fruitiness. Maybe some hops down in there also. Malty sweetness, with some hops in there to balance them out. No real bitterness to the tatse. A hint of spice. Very smooth. Good beer!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flavor on this one seems to be a little shallow. Aroma is strangely reminiscent of caramel corn/Cracker Jacks. Nothing to write home about, but decent.
