Had on-tap at Green Dot Stables in Detroit. $3 for a 12oz mug. Hadn't had it before, so why not.
Appearance: Dark, dark brown with a little, brown, creamy head. Not much lacing to be seen. A pretty average brown ale.
Smell: For some reason, I didn't pull much out. Maybe my sniffer was broken. Very faint, dirty malt aroma, with maybe some traces of coffee. Almost reminiscent of a stout, but then again, I always figure brown ales are just a small step behind a stout/porter.
Taste/feel: Average is as average does. It tastes like the smell... light on the aroma, light on the taste... easy drinking, but it's just a middle-of-the-road brown that's just not that interesting. Arcadia doesn't make the best beer, but they make typical examples of styles without trying to "change the rules", so to speak.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a Kansas City Royals pint glass, but do not worry, the mediocrity of the team does not affect the beer. In this case, the beer was just mediocre. Thin, thin, thin and only slightly flavorful. Light brown in appearance (is this darker on tap?), and no head to speak of. Luckily, I only had one bottle of this in a mix-and-match 6'er. Won't try again from the bottle.

Fair head for a brown with some lingering lacing on the glass. Color is very clear for a brown. A very mild nutty aroma. Not impressive. Taste and mouth feel are extremely thin. There's really not much here to satisfy. Given Arcadia's strong distribution in Michigan, I expected a lot more from them. This is way too bland. Pass it up.
