3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from the 1 pt. 6 fl. oz bottle most likely brewed just a few weeks prior to my tasting in Feb. ’09. The pour was a reddish-amber tone with an adequate supply of foamy beige head that sticks around and provides a little lacing action. The aroma is floral with a note of hops. Medum mouthfeel. The hops are more evident in the taste than they are in the aroma and there is a sweet and bitter end to the flavor. A fine brew for those chilly winter evenings.

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 don’t overpower. The malt character lingers while the hops mildly dry the tongue. Nice beer.

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

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at Nate’s Leaving Do care of Leighton. Colours clear chestnut brown. Nose is sour. Unfortunately it’s 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.

3.1 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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

Draft at Ten Tables in JP. Pours a rustic orange color with a small foamy off white head. Nose is lightly nutty with a light coriander spice and a hint of sweet caramel malt. Palate is full and smooth. Flavors of light spicy autumnal notes with a nice sweet malt in the finish and hints of caramel and toffee.

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.

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

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
