Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Samuel Adams nonick.

a: Clear copper with an inch and a half offwhite head which receded to rocky surface foam and dense lacing.

s; Mild ripe fruit notes, hints of caramel malt.

t; Caramel malt under mixed light fruit notes. Sweet to dry finish.

m: Medium, good body and carbonation tingle.

o: A very pleasant English style pale ale, perhaps slightly fruitier than an ESB might be but not to the point that it dominates the malt. Really enjoyed this with dinner and sipping afterwards. Even my wife liked it, which is rare.

Crisp! Fruit (Apple) notes on the palate, medium bodied with no lingering finish going down.

Flavor and color were great, but I was expecting more body, maybe a bit more spice as well (The name of the brew is "Cabin Fever" after all). Overall, solid!

An excellent winter warmer for a cold night indeed. Great flavor and look-the smell is actually better, somehow. Excellent like all other BBC ales I've had.
