When I used to live in Michigan I drove by this brewery and never had one of their beers. Boy was that a mistake. Michigan has some very good beers and I’m very excited in giving this one a try. Very good brown. Nice chocolate flavor, solid malts, a wee bit vinegary. Smooth and drinkable. Respectable effort on the part of Arcadia and another very nice beer. I think you’ll enjoy it. heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 29, 2004
Bottle. Light tan head tops a ruddy brown color. Aroma is brown sugar, walnuts and a little bubblegum. Surprisingly, the taste it not at all sweet. A coppery roast beef and bread make this rather unpleasant. A typical brown ale. Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2004
Medium thick, smooth and sweet, lightly roasted and caramel. My problem with this beer is the finish - lactic and sour, left a bad taste in my mouth. hershiser2 (3410) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Deep brown with a gigantic head! Smell is quite ordinary to a nut brown, but the taste is more complex than the average. Light chocolates, deep roasted nuts. A very solid brew. BUrunner (92) - Indiana, USA - APR 25, 2004
Poured dark brown with a medium tan head. Dark roasted aroma but somewhat thin taste. A bit sweet, decent mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.

Dark brown to red in color. Big up front dry, grainy, malty, earthy taste. Medium bodied, finished dry. hotstuff (5173) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 29, 2004
Bottle. The head was small in size, ivory, creamy and smooth with fine-medium sized bubbles that mostly diminished. The body was mostly opaque, some carbonation and a brown hue. The nose was malty and caramel and the flavor was sweet, malty, caramel, lightly bitter and some chocolate notes. This beer had a slight aftertaste to it. The mouthfeel was tingly and the lacing was fair. thedm (6221) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 27, 2004
This bottled brew poured a medium sized head of finely sized off-white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lace. The body is a dark brown color with no visible carbonation and almost opaque. The aroma is a very nice dark brown beer malt. The mouth feel is malty with a mild malty finish with only a few brown beer notes to it. The flavor is smooth and even with sweet malt and a mild acidic finish.

one of thier best. well put together; nice from when you open the bottle until it's done. could be a little sweeter and the head was weak. Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - DEC 27, 2003
Pours fiery red-brown, with a creamy light tan head. Sour, nutty aroma. Flavor begins somewhat sour, with nutty and tangy malts mingling with hints of chocolate. Finishes in classic Arcadia style with earthy English hops taking over the palate.
