COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Fra Castros Havanna til 3F’s hovedkvarter har de røde Fat Cats melet deres egen kage. Til kage går det bedst med maltet og ikke for bitter øl med en frugtig aroma.
Da Fat Cat skulle brygges ledte jeg efter en karakteristisk humle, der kunne spille op imod den karamelagtige maltprofil og da Nelson Sauvin var en af de eneste humletyper på det tidspunkt der kunne fås frisk fra 2008 høsten var valget ikke svært efter jeg i 2006 på Helsinki Beerfestival havde smagt en øl humlet 100% med denne humle. Malten der er brugt er en blanding af britisk Maris Otter og tysk münchenermalt sammen med karamelmalt, afskallet chokolademalt og rå byg fra Sjællands fede muld.
At Fat Cat samtidig holder beherskede 4,7% alkohol gør at man med fordel kan nyde et par pints uden at gå helt kold.

A lot of aroma nice and spicy from the hops. The foam is very large. Flavor is also very spicy in a good way. Very interesting taste.

Xavalias (154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2014
On bottle at Farvholm campus, Hillerød, Denmark. Pours hazy amber with medium tan head. Hoppy, fruity aroma of citrus and berries, malts. Solid bitterness, light acidity, rather dry. The palate is highly carbonated, medium bodied. Long hoppy bitter finish. Nice.

allmyvinyl (3371) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 9, 2014
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours dark amber with a thin off-white head. Aromas are nutty, woody, earthy, low hop fruitiness, perhaps a touch of sherbet. Taste is light sweet, more nuttiness. Light body, bit disappointing to be honest.

Vestergaard (373) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2014
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours reddish amber with a big, frothy, off white head. Aroma has very fruity, fresh, exotic hops, berries like cranberry and maybe even strawberry. Nelson Sauvin really shines through here! A subtle caramel malt as well. Taste is nice and bitter hoppy, thought this is carried by the same berry-like fruityness and the sweet caramel malts. Taste doesn’t fully live up to the aroma. The body is slightly watery. The carbonation is medium-high. A nice, sessionable beer for sure!

Peter_L (755) - SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2014
Tap@Brewdog Bar. Mörkt kopparfärgad vätska. Karamellig doft med röda bär och tallbarr. Torr, lätt smak. Vilket kan ursäktas av den låga alkoholstyrkan. På slutet framträder en tydlig smak av päronskal. Inte kul.

Bottle. Reddish amber Body with white head. Aroma is malts with hints of citrus fruits. Taste is malts with hints of fruits and caramel. Thin body. Aftertaste is malty with some bitterness. nice summerbeer. As I was missing the hop aromas, I think the bottle was a little bit to old.

From a bottle. Pours a very cloudy amber brown, malty aroma, thin white head, big hop flavours with a citrus tang. I like it a lot.

Very sweet and rich fruit flavor and aroma. How I want my beer. Fine and exquisite bitterness that fills the mouth well and for a long while. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
