Arcadia Loch Down
Dark reddish brown beer with a thin creamy tan head. Nose of cocoa, chestnuts, and toasted brown bread. Flavor is more potent than the aroma with roasted dark grain, unsweetened dark chocolate, and bitter almonds finished with a toasty bitterness that lingers a bit, but becomes a bit acrid over time. Decent.

Cask @ White House, Luton
Ciemnobursztynowy, zamglony kolor. Niska, drobna, ciemnokremowa piana. W aromacie ciasteczka, biszkopty, herbatniki, karmel, toffi. W smaku podobnie plus ciemne owoce. Umiarkowane ciało, średnia pełnia. Goryczka także pośrodku z słodko-gorzkim finiszem. Słodowe, klasyczne ESB, niczego nie urywa.

Arcadia Thunder Trail
Cask handpull at Hamilton Hall London as íThunder Trailí. No brewery or abv details, but the pump clip is identical to the one for this beer brewed at Arcadia, Michigan. Iíll take it at face value. Clear amber orange, still, foamy off white head, full lacing. Aroma is crusty white bread, pale kvass, tiger bread. Body is smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is bready, resinous, touch of varnish, gluey, tangy hops and sugary toffee malt. A very authentic ESB. Canít imagine why spoons would import a beer like this when similar beers are so readily available here. I can only imagine they didnít - brewed under licence? Anyway, itís an ok beer.

Arcadia B-Craft Black
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized light brown colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque except at the edges dark black brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The weak aroma was brown malt. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a strong roasted malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mildly vinous burnt malt and brown malt. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Bottle from andersons. Nose is weak and a bit too spicy for style. Body is thin and somewhat weak. Usual citrus rind on top of toasted cereal wheat with a bit of coriander. Not amazing but not awful. Goes well with the heat.

Arcadia / Wadworth 2X Export-Style Bitter
Draft to taster at Arcadia. Looks good for the style; a mostly transparent golden caramel with off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of caramel up front with mild notes of hops in the background. Tastes like it smells with some grassy bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium-light to medium-bodied. Solid, but forgettable.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with orange highlight and a small foamy tan head that faded quickly and left minimal lacing. The aroma was malty with notes of anise and coconut. The flavor was bitter and sour with almost vinegar followed by roasty malts, black food coloring and anise. Long finish. Medium body. Not good.

Arcadia Cheap Date
Rated on 6-12-2016 (Bottle) The appearance is a medium sized foamy white head that is mostly lasting, transparent light yellow body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, tropical fruit, grassy, light spice, and pale malt. The flavor presents light bitterness, citrus hops, fruity, light spice, semi-sweet, and malt. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. A quaffable easy drinking beer, but nothing to really write home about with this beer. It is rather bland and boring to drink/rate.

Arcadia Hop Rocket
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 5-4-16. Fresh, citric aroma. Lemon and orange scents. Also peach and yellow plum (pitted fruit). Smells like a citric-flavored Toaster Strudel and dessert wine. Clear gold with some effervescence. Some haze in the final pour. Small amount of short-lasting, beige head. Simultaneously hoppy and malty. Sweet, malty taste: Marshmallow. Orange flavor; also tangerine and peach. Lightly bitter finish, but, overall, this beer is well on the sweet side for the style. Itís not cloyingly sweet, however. Medium to full body. Lively in the palate. Overall, underwhelming. Too sweet and inoffensive, like so many other IPAs today. Rating number 2001.
