really dismal label: a huge field of gravel with a drab brown diamond framing this ghoulish turtle skull or albino bowling ball; what is that thing? call me, arcadia, i'll make you a decent label. there's a certain aroma i've come to associate with great british beers, like bass for example. arcadia is like that only more so. not a sight for sore eyes but a scent for sore sinuses. ahem, anyway. the aroma is to die for. god wears a cologne about like this, it's a vintage bookstore, it's vanilla, it's brown sugar carmelizing in a peach cobbler. i say jump and the flavor says: 'how high?'. stop me, i'm raving. great beer. carlb (107) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 24, 2010
Pours a beautiful mahogany brown with a 1.5 inch thick tan head that settles at 3/4 inch. The initial nose is appealing and inviting. Medium body with a caramel and malty lingering that is moreish. Well/formed yet moderate Belgian lace. The subsequent nose provides hints of yeast, chocolate and dried fruit. The finish is clean with delicate hop notes.

Great interpretation of a English Brown Ale. Dark black/burgundy color. Nice carmel taste through out with some hop notes. pauliefrog99 (302) - FLINT, Michigan, USA - AUG 12, 2001

12oz bottle. Thick ambery-brown color. Rich, creamy, with a nice chocolaty taste that lingers in the aftertaste. Sweet brown sugar aroma. Very drinkable and refreshing. This is really an excellent Brown Ale, vastly underrated. lcwakshul (244) - Chester, Maryland, USA - NOV 30, 2010
12 oz bottle. Dark amber pour with a moderate head. Very malty nutty flavor with a smooth finish. Would definitely drink again. AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2005
A good bit nutty, as expected. I wouldn’t say it’s as complex as the description, but it’s good. jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - MAY 1, 2007
From a 12 oz. bottle with a notched bottling/freshness date along the right side of label, sampled at cellar temperature in a pint glass.
Poured a cloudy reddish brown with foamy, creamy off-white/pale tan head that settled into a thin sudsy lacing.
Had a fruity and nutty nose, raisins, fresh dates and roasted almonds, with a light backing of chocolate malts.
Good medium carbonation and a crisp, dry, chewy, creamy smooth medium-light bodied mouthfeel.
A pleasant nut brown taste, a tasty fruitiness, dates and berries, roasted almond nuts, grainy and lightly roasted chocolate malts, subtle citric hops, the alcohol is barely noticeable, and a big dry nutty, grainy and chocolate malty finish.
Another good English style beer from Arcadia, easy drinkability, a good nut brown ale.

Pours a clear mahogany color with long-lasting tan head that clings to the glass. Toasted malt aroma, chocolate malt along with a grassy/ floral hop aroma. Great mouth feel and body. Lightly sweet upfront but finishing dry and grassy. I really like the balance and nose of this brown ale. Enjoyable.
