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-conditioned at the Rummer, Cardiff, 17/9/2015. Amber in colour, with a frothy, white, head. Aroma of oranges and caramel, with some leafy hops. Flavour was malty, with some red berry fruit and a decent, bitter, finish. Enjoyable.

FatPhil (11817) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 8, 2015
Cask (Castle, Cambridge)
More brown than amber. Fruity aroma, some "red" sweetness. Sweet palate. A bit watery, almost flat. Pleasantly sweet body though. Very low bitterness. Very simple, and sessionable, but boring.

tombyars (1506) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Tasted this in the Isle of Arran, food & drink festival, Kinloch Hotel, Blackwaterfoot in Arran on the 11th July 2015. Cask, gravity dispense. Clear dark amber in colour with no head. Mixed malts give a weak maltloaf base with notes of pink grapefruit in the mouth but little else. Short hop prickle present with dry grassy notes but this fades fast. Dry hoppy finish with hay and citrus pith just about evident. A poor session bitter.

gegwilson (2379) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2015
Cask. Amber with a thin layer of off white froth. The taste is surprisingly hoppy with a fair bit of citrus and grapefruit. A little caramel in the background. Pretty good for what it is.

The_Osprey (4165) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2015
Cask at The Railway, Putney. Yellow / orange, still, clear, small bubbly white head. Aroma is toffee, marmalade, astringent with some grapefruit. Body is medium, smooth, rounded. Taste is light tepid water, soft bready malt, dry hoppy citrus, musty bitterness. Drinkability is quite good. Not bad overall.

JorgeLee (1511) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2015
Cask in the Prince Albert, Battersea. Amber colour, white foam. Very nicely balanced, some sweetish malts, citrusy fruity hops. Immense smashability. Quite nicely done actually, taking elements of a very crafty style and adding them on to a solid English pint.
