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.

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.

Cybercat (3196) - Georgia, USA - FEB 20, 2013
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.

Nsanders (484) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2010
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.

SpencerDB (223) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 1, 2009
Poured into a standard pint glass with a small, fleeting caramel head. Aroma of deep, full malts. Taste is surprisingly complex. Definitely full bodied with flavors including heavy malts, caramel, slight coffee notes, and a nice smooth dry finish. Excellent beer. Everything i was hoping for. I will be going back to buy more tomorrow.

ChainGangGuy (4347) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 1, 2012
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a clear, very dark amber body with a finger-high head comprised of light tan froth.

Smell: Moderately roasty, nutty aroma, smelling of Breakfast Blend coffee, a firm shard of milk chocolate, walnuts, with a little touch of date fruitiness.

Taste: A roasty start, but not overly so, with tastes of sweetened coffee, fire-roasted nuts, light chocolate, even a little caramel in there. Small portion of dark fruitiness. Earthy, faintly leafy hops with sufficing bitterness to cut the initial malt sweetness. Roasty, toasty on the finish and into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel.

Overall: A solid, soundly malty brown ale for the colder months.
