COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
NOTE: Different hops and grain bill to the original Honey Cat.
A golden coloured ale, combining the full flavour of English pale and crystal malts with Norfolk honey, giving a sweetish, yet full-flavoured ale. The spicy notes of Atlas hops combine well with the honey to give a smooth finish, with a notable, hoppy bite.

Fat Cat & Canary, Norwich. OK. Clean and drinkable with some dirty hay flavours, and a noble hop bitterness in the finish. Perhaps a little lacking in character. A bit like a lager.

Lovely honey ale with bitter aftertaste. Enville ale Simpkiss-esque Black Country boy at heart

oh6gdx (20333) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 11, 2011
Cask@The Fat Cat Pub, Norwich. Golden colour, small off-white head. Aroma is sweet malts, floral hops and some mild wooden notes. Flavour is wood, mild honey, sweet malts as well as some bitterness. Could have a bit more honey, as it was extremely mild sweet traces of it only.

Cask Conditioned handpump Wig & Pen Northampton. A golden beer with a white head and lacing. A biscuity taste with reasonable balancing and not overpowering honey. There’s more honey in the nose than the mouth. I’m not usually a fan of honey beers but this was pretty nice.

Sigmund (5120) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2011
Cask at The Harp, London, as The Fat Cat Honey Ale. Deep golden to amber colour, moderate white head. Moderate aroma of honey, hints of toffee. The flavour has moderate notes of honey, but is not too sweet. Smooth to drink, with a decent hoppy bitterness in the finish.

tdtm82 (668) - Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2010
Gravity cask runner, The Fat Cat, Colchester. Excellent white lacing, perfume, grass, grapefruit and honey on aroma. Grapefruit, sweet malts, caramel, honey and a nice descent succulent hop bite which holds. Some grapefruit and citrus in the mix. This is a local brewery in Colchester. This is a session ale which should be seasonable to May as I reckon it is an ideal spring beer. Great stuff either way.

sm89walt (1756) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2009
Cask - The Fat Cat, Norwich. A cloudy amber with an initial fine white head that eventually dissipates to a single layer of foam. Good hoppy aromas with notes of caramel and orange. The flavour begins with some sweetness, progresses with a hint of honey sweetness and finishes with some grapefruity, orangey citric bitterness. Good mouthfeel, medium body and a pleasant, lasting bitterness.
