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.

Beer4000 (4395) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 2, 2014
On tap @ Cardinal. Slightly unclear dark golden body with a stable, medium sized off-white head. Nice aroma of citric fruit together with ripe fruit and a hint of pine. Flavor is more fruity than malty with the same combination of fresh citric fruit and some ripe fruit. Relatively bitter. Medium body and OK aftertaste with fruit and bitterness. Very easy to drink, quite quaffable but not so much more than a nice session ale. I also have a little suspicion that the tap line is not in an optimal condition here.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2013
Pours a hazy orange colour. A bit sticky aroma of lemon and pine. Taste is quite bitter, but not too much. It has lemon, pine and some tiny bit of ginger in the end, which makes a very good mix. A bit soapy mouthfeel, good body for the alcohol level. Indeed a very good beer.
