A: This poured a clear light gold with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like bready lager yeast and wild clover honey, with pecan and copper.
T: It tasted like sweet honey and sugary wheat bread, with some lager yeast and nutty malt. It had a very light and clean aftertaste that was sweet with a bit of sour.
M: It was oily with moderate carbonation. Nice slick body.
D: This was a delicate and enjoyable brew. It was maybe bolder fresh, but the scent and taste were still good after 9+ months. The body was nice too, and there was no alcohol noticeable, so it was very easy to drink. Nothing exciting about this beer, but it's still recommended for a nice change of pace.

Holiday beers should add a bit of sparkle to the season. "Cabin Fever" suggests a big-bodied winter warmer, but this beer steers right down the middle of average lane. Nice malt with caramel notes, but overall seemed a bit thin. Some drying aspect toward the finish with moderate lingering bitterness.
