COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our 3.8% pale amber summer beer proudly supports the Marine Conservation Society. Fat Sprat is brewed with Pale Ale malted barley, Munich, Cara and Black malt, with Columbus, English Goldings, Cascade and Chinook hops. It has a lovely citrus, grapefruit aroma with some spicy notes. On the palate, the citrus character of the hops shines through, balanced with a light biscuit flavour and a crisp, dry finish.

Cask, at the Wharf, Aalborg. It’s a clear one, dark golden in color and with a small, dense off-white head. It’s fruity on the nose, with a touch of malts. A faint meaty touch too. Some roasted malts in the flavor, bread and pale malt notes, with a nice bitterness. Full to medium body, soft carbonation. Lasting mostly fruity finish. An easy drinkable one, but nothing extra-ordinary going on. 150515
