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.

brown clear liquid with a light beige head - lightly carbonated. apple, roasted malt, caramel and light chocolate overtones in the aroma, flavor is pleasantly roasty and a touch spicy, maltier than hoppy but still quite balanced. 6.1% is well-hidden; this is a pretty drinkable brew!

Lowe1983 (1346) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2007
Pours a brown color with an off-white head. Aroma is of roasted malts, chocolate, and caramel malts. Flavor starts off with roasted malts, chocolate, and molasses. That gives way to caramel malts and a slight bitterness from the hops. Flavor is much better then the aroma. Overall not bad at all.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - NOV 19, 2007
Nose of caramel, berries and flowers. Pours walnut with garnet highlights. The thin mostly diminishing creamy/frothy beige head leaves no lace. Starts balanced with moderate acidity and a sweet middle. The finish is long and roasted with a hint of caramel sweetness. Nice complexity. The medium to full body is creamy and soft to lively. The finish feels clean. By the way Iím pretty sure this is a brown ale; at least thatís what the label claims.

11/12/2007: New Holland Cabin Fever Brown Ale pours a clear, chesnut brown color. The foamy brown head is decently-sized at first, but it disappears quickly. There is a moderate level of carbonation. The aroma contains hazelnut, maple syrup, and lots of malt (caramelized). The flavor is sweet with some light chocolate, caramelized malt, hints of alcohol, and some nutty qualities. Overall this beer has a strong, well-refined flavor. It is a nice Winter brown ale that is quite good.

12 fl. oz. bottle from . Rating #39 for this beer...

Very little head, Grainey(rye?)and coffee aroma, brown Christmas cake laced with anise taste ,light bitter finish,little sweetness there almost tastes like an artificial sugar, pleasant enough not heavy enough to be considered a winter ale

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Bottle. So this beer pours a nice reddish brown color, but then it forms this wonderful head that sits about one finger high of tan foam. Aroma is sort of chalky... with some chocolate notes and a touch of wet cardboard. Flavor is sweet toffee malts with a bit of a chocolate/coffee edge to it. The rye is part of that malty/chalky mix and blands nicely.

AOF (306) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2007
Slightly cloudy, reddish brown color. Nose is more sweet malts and fruity caramel then roasted malts. Some hints of toasted grain and nuts. Light bodied with a slightly bitter, hoppy finish. More a winter red then a brown ale. Not bad, but nothing really interesting either.

masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2007
Poured a hazelnut brown. On tap at New Holland. Aroma was nutty and sweet. Taste was hints of maple syrup, hazelnut, roasted grain, slight coffee and caramel sweetness. Not super thick, fairly straightforward. More flavor than most brown ales, but has room for improvement.

Tmoney99 (10575) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2007
Bottle From Rivers Bend. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting and had good lacing. Good toasted malty aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Moderate well balanced toasted malty flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good brew.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2010 Dark mahogany wth decent, fizzy, tan head / Modest toasty chocolate and coffee nose / Medium body, chewy but watery, with good balance and weak finish / Flavors of roast malt, nuts, cocoa, and dark roast coffee / Serious body flaws.
