New Holland Brewing of Holland, Michigan makes a delicious Brown Ale called Cabin Fever. Here’s my review.
Cabin Fever pours brown with a light tan bubbly head of foam. It smells of roasted malts, strong caramel, bitter chocolate, more like a robust porter than a brown ale, really. It’s very inviting. The taste matches the nose with roasted malts, bitter-sweet chocolate, light coffee, caramel, grains, with a bready yeast and toasted malt finish. It has the body of a brown ale, but all the great flavors of a porter. Nice mouthfeel and good carbonation. It’s 6.5% ABV and 25 IBU.
A lovely beer for a long winter’s night. I’ll take two please.
