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.

Theydon_Bois (7898) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2014
Cask at the Crown Rivers, LHR T5, 20/06/14. Very lightly hazed amber with a well appointed off beige head that dissipates then retains. Nose is candied sugars, light hop, perfumed notes, cotton candy, orange rind. Taste comprises berry fruit, light mineral notes, caramel, hint of perfume, orange pithiness, Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close with light hop bitterness and mineral pangs. Ok lightly hopped amber, not really a bitter for me.

Christian (11021) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2014
Cask at Christian Firtal. Dark amber with a small off-white head. Fruitty aroma with dark berries, some caramel and grassy notes. Dry and fruity, very refreshing flavour with a wonderful blackcurrant and raspberry note reminding me of my first cask bitters at Frigate and Firkin pub in West Kensington in the mid-90s.

BeerViking (2290) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2014
Cask at the Ealing JDW, amber-brown with a fruity hopsack aroma. A little watery in the texture but nice flavour - nutty malt, more dank hopsack, a little toffee and grapefruit. Rather like a citrus-hopped-up Southwold Bitter.

Your standard biter aroma... No head, dark in colour. Sharp bitter taste that sticks. Nothing special, bog standard bitter. After it warms up, tastes a lot better.
