New Holland Cabin Fever Review

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.

    While it's difficult to picture Santa as a young man, he was once. He met the future Mrs. Claus one snowy night when she offered him a winter ale that she brewed herself. It was love at first sight - for both the Mrs. and her winter ales. With Santa's growing fame, his favorite brews became named after his favorite day - Christmas. Santa now travels the world each year to spread the joy that began in a stable in Bethlehem two millennia ago.
