Bottle. Pours with a small, light brown head with excellent lacing. Dark brown body color. Aromas of molasses, toffee, citrus, brown sugar, and maple syrup. Creamy and slick texture with an average duration of flavor. Very smooth beer and excellent aftertaste. Must purchase!

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2009 Draught at Woodward Avenue Brewery and Berkley Front. Reminds me of a cross between a porter and a brown ale; there’s a definite sweetness to the finish on top of the cream and slight bitter bite. Nice body, rich without being overwhelmingly thick.

Dark roasted malts and mildly nutty in aroma. The flavor is caramel, roasted malts, grains and a mild nuttiness to it. Excellent brown ale, very smooth.

Strong, malty aroma has firm earthy, clove and caramel tones - and I got all these even with a stuffy nose! Pours a dark, slightly hazy sepia with a fairly thick pale tan head. Luscious flavor has earthy, caramel, cloves, nutty and malty notes - very pleasing. Robust texture has a subtle but persistent fizz. A cure for cabin fever? Could be!

Caramel chocolate coffee aroma and dark brown color. Tastes the same way it sniffs. Reminds me why New Holland is one of my favorite breweries.

This is a very enjoyable brown ale. Not overwhelming on the palate in any way and smooth. Great looking and wonderful fall / winter taste.

Bourbon, dark candy, raisins, caramel malt, roasted nuttiness and a hit of alcohol. Thick body and a touch of hoppiness on the finish.

Deep reddish brown color. Smokey, earthy aroma. Light bitterness and sweetness that compliment each other very nicely. Medium to full bodied. Went very well with chocolate walnut brownie. Label was the reason for buying this after a 17" snowfall.

Pours brown with a small yellowish khaki head. Smells a little smoky with hints of a caramel nuttiness. Taste is mildly smoky and very little nutty. Medium-bodied with a slightly wet texture and soft mouth-carbonation, New Holland Cabin Fever finishes with a little caramel sweetness.
