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.

3.1 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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

2.4 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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.
