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.

Leighton (11860) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2014
Cask at the Pelt Trader - London. Pours clear amber with a fine, white cream head. Bready malts in the nose, some generic brown bread. Light to medium sweet flavor with more simple brown bread, light earthy bitterness, toast, faint leaves, berries. Light bodied with fine carbonation; decent condition. Moderately dry and bready to finish with lightly toasted malts and low bitterness. Simple bitter. Nothing wrong here.

BlackHaddock (4137) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2014
Cask: hand-pulled pint in the Knights Templar, London on 12th Sep 2014. Poured into the tall Adnams glasses now available all over the UK where their beers are sold (I do not like them). Anyway the beer was a good mahogany colour with a full white head and looked fine. Hoppy nose with a strong malt hint as it warmed in the glass. The taste was also a blend of both hops and maltiness, pleasant without testing the taste buds too greatly. Light caramel coming through the slightly bittering hop content.
