COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fat Cat Lager is handcrafted in the time-honored Bavarian tradition and is a classic Vienna lager. The amber-colored brew has a subtle aroma and crisp, mildly bitter taste. Fat Cat Lager is made with Brewerís two-row malt, carapils malt, caramel malt and domestic hops. Fat Cat Lager has a malty, toasty aroma with just a hint of noble hops in a drying finish.

From the can at Abbeyís Real BBQ. Not amazing, but better than the Pilsner, which surprised me. If I had to drink a lager, this wouldnít be a bad choice.

Poured from a can into a pint glass, appearance is a murky golden shade with a thick head. Aroma was not great, had a yeasty odor. A light bodied flavor, similar to others in its category.

So where exactly is this from? The can didnít mention Minhas at all but what appeared to be a contract brewer in Wisconsin called MDII. And so Fat Cat is I suppose a dba for Minhas, and contracted at MDII in Wisconsin. Doesnít sound like a recipe for success in the form of a good beer, but hey, this ainít bad. Its a vienna for sure, with that toasty malt nose and flavor, melanoidins hinting at a vinous like fruitiness, a grapey flavor Iíve encountered in some bocks. Balanced. Hazy amber-gold color, smallish head. Drinkable.

Can: Honey nose. Hazy amber, thick lacy head. Dark honey, tinny. Bitter parsley finish. Hmm, a lager from Minhas. I expected the worst, probably a lifeless, flavorless macroish pale lager. What I got was a lager with a fairly rich malt bill and actual hoppiness. Itís not without its detractors as I didnít care for the metallic qualities, but this was more than respectable.

Barreras (1526) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - APR 6, 2014
Pours a true amber color that appears to glow in the class. Aroma is of smelly sweetness almost if the beer was left out to spoil. Taste is a bit off, I can taste a tinge of caramel mixed with malt. The mixture of this beer is off that gives it a bready flavor.

adnielsen (10445) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2014
In the can thanks to a nice trading partner. Pours a rust orange appearance with a big khaki head. Slight butter, toffee, caramel, and herbal / grassy aroma. Twangy fruity, chewy, slightly metallic, very sweet flavor. A lot of sugar in the aftertaste. Scroll past this weak shit.

onceblind (6937) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Slightly hazy amber with a pillowy off white cap. Nose is sweet and caramel/biscuity with a touch of cracker. Nice calm sweet flavor of toasted and sweet english muffin, a kiss of earthy caramel, and wheat-like tones. Not shabby, and really kinda enjoyable.

Can. Apple, cider, acetaldehyde. Maltiness is appropriate. Seems clean. Is what it is.

nimbleprop (7202) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 1, 2013
12oz can pours a clear caramel amber with some thin, white head. Nose of corn, biscuit, malt, honey cough drops. Flavor is the same, very much like a honey cough drop, malt, slightly floral. Sweet finish. Too one note.

pours a orange brown with a hard hit punch with malts and slight spices. the hops are slight and it gives a rich creamy head.
