COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Robust in character yet smooth in delivery, Cabin Fever is a roasty brown ale and a hearty, comforting companion for long, mind-bending winters. Its rye, roast and raisin notes play off a subtle caramel sweetness and culminate in a dry finish. Excellent with roasts, stews, caramelized onions and snowfall.

Based on the review below my bottle must have been the way this beer was supposed to taste. This is the WORST brown I have had. Finished it is about all I can say....between this and a Diet Coke in the future I will take the diet.

although the optimist in me wants to like this beer, with its nutty, caramel, and treacle aroma and chocolatey appearance, the taste is way too sour for my palate, and Iíve had a few of them. All were the same.

thedm (4984) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 29, 2009
This bottled brew from a rating party at JSquires poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a transparent uncarbonated red brown colored body. The mild aroma was brown malt and Irish Red malty. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of nutty and brown malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Unfortunately I drank this without taking notes and forgot the details... I do remember it being a bit off and overly sour.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 6, 2009
Mahogany with a medium tan head quickly fading to a thin layer. Aroma of diacetyl, nuts and caramel. Taste of nuts, brown sugar, hazelnuts, brown sugar and some not so pleasant sourness. Nasty and off-putting, not a big fan of this one.

hershiser2 (1284) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Bottle. $1.80 at Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours brown with a large fluffy tan head. Aroma os sweet caramel and maple. Way too tart flavor... tastes like sour apples... nearly undrinkable. Bad bottle?

Beerdedone (2786) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2009
Bottle. Pours brown with a small tan head. Aroma was roasty with caramel, chocolate and some nuttiness. Flavor was roasted malts, light caramel, nuts, chocolate and a bit of toffee. Meh

Headbanger (3425) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2009
12oz bottle 5/21/09 (Binnyís Naperville)-Pours a dark brown with red tints. Aroma of nuts, caramel, and malt. Taste is of roasted malt, raisins, sweetness, and something not very good. This medium bodied brew starts off good but then goes down hill from there. If the nasty flavor on the back end would go away it would be much better.

Onslow (1225) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAY 7, 2009
Deep hazy opaque brown pour. Thin tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is nutty, caramel, but a bit metallic. Flavor starts with sweet malt, transitions to a hoppy bitterness, but ends on a sour note that suggests decay or spoilage. This hits the taste buds with a mixture of fantastic and awful flavors Ė and at the end of the swallow itís the awful that stays with you. Maybe Iíd like it better on a winter night instead of a spring afternoon, but right now, I donít like it.

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Bottle: Pours a ruby brown with a thin tan head that diminishes quickly. Has a caramel aroma with a creamy texture and nutty flavor. Good but nothing special.
